The Commissioner for Information and State Orientation, Senator Emmanuel Onwe, announced this on Thursday while briefing journalists on the outcome of this week’s State Executive Council meeting in Abakaliki, the state capital

The statement by Onwe reads in full: “The forcible removal of scores of Nigerian citizens of Igbo extraction from Lagos State, conceived, planned and cynically executed by the government of Lagos State, led by a man who was perceived to be perhaps the most thoughtful, concentrated, disciplined and enlightened governor among the class of 2007 has come as massive shock to Njiko Igbo in particular and to Ndigbo in general

Kalu debunked the claim that the alleged single term agreement President Goodluck Jonathan had with some governors in 2011 was a discussion at the last meeting of the group held in Abuja on February 20, 2013, as reported in the media

President Jonathan will need to sustain the broad coalition that propelled him to victory in 2011 in order to retain the presidency in 2015. This means that he must count on the seven Northern states that he carried in 2011 plus five Western states, five Eastern states to add to his six South-South states to prevail again

Ndigbo have, for decades, expressed the desire and the thirst for the prime political office in this country. We have clearly shown, by oral advocacy, why we have that desire and thirst. Now we must take the forward steps in the direction of the oasis from which we hope to quench our thirst for justice and our desire for equity in Nigeria

Announcing the appointment at his Aso Villa residence in Abuja, the Protem Coordinator of the organization and former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, said that he “took full cognizance of Onwe’s solid background, resilient political spirit, passion for the Igbo cause and vast international exposure in nominating him and proposing him to the executive organ of the body for approval
