According to Daily Post, the governor told newsmen that he saw a bit of civil war and he doesn’t want people going in the same direction again. In his words;
“I’m going to speak with Nnmadi Kanu on the basis of the fact that I am the Governor of Abia state and he is a citizen of Abia state. I’m not going to engage Nnmadi Kanu on the grounds of IPOB. Why are you are taking arms against the Nigerian nation? I saw a bit of the civil war and I don’t want people to get on a boat that is sailing nowhere.”
