Senator Obinna Ogba said on Wednesday, April 21 that no amount of crisis in the south east zone will prevent them from producing the next President of the country. He made this view known when addressing a press conference after sponsoring a motion in the red chamber to stop the killings in his native Ebonyi state.
He said: “Though there were pockets of crises in some of the states before now, but the rising wave of such crises resulting in wanton killings of innocent lives and destruction of property is political.
“Why is it that it is when agitation for South East to have a taste of the Presidency in 2023 is gaining momentum that the senseless killings got intensified?”
He also expressed grave concern over the poor security situation in the nation. According to him, one of such examples was the bedlam unleashed on people in Obeagu, Egedegede and Nkalaha communities in Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State by suspected herdsmen on March 30, 2021.
He opined that there was the urgent need for critical intervention by the Federal Government to stop the killings.
