Okezie Ikpeazu, the Governor of Abia State, has said that he holds no personal grudge against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, but he disagrees with Nnmadi approach.
He also said that while he believed that some of the grievances of IPOB such as marginalization were genuine, but the approach of violence used by the IPOB can not be accepted by him, and that it would not produce any good ending.
The governor of Abia State told reporters in Umuahia, the state capital, that he was ready to brief Nnamdi Kanu on how Security can be restored in the States and other regions in the South East.

The governor said, ” If there are things you want us to vocalise about the way things are going in this country, raise the tune a little bit, I think there are people who are willing to say that and do that.
I can speak to Nnamdi who happens to an Abian but not on any affilation with the IPOB, i am not going to communicate with Nnmadi on the grounds on IPOB.
I am going to speak with Nnamdi on the basis that I am the governor of Abia State, and he is also a citizen of Abia State.
But again, why won’ t I talk to anyone? I have nothing personal against Nnamdi and I don’ t think he has anything personal against me. But we all say the same thing as far as there is injustice, there is marginalization, we say the same thing, our point of divergence is the approach on which we address the issues.
The governor also said that, If you’ re taking up arms against the Nigerian nation, what capacity do you have to conclude it? Because I’ m not a suicide candidate and I saw a bit of the civil war and I don’ t want to get people on a boat that is sailing to nowhere.
