The Chairman Southeast Governors’ Forum and governor of Ebonyi State, Chief David Umahi on Friday called on the Federal Government to convoke new national conference to discuss the agitations of the End SARS protesters and other issues affecting the country.
Umahi made this known while addressing journalists shortly after inspecting some of the police facilities that were destroyed by rampaging hoodlums under the End SARS disguise in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State capital.
The governor lamented the level of destruction of lives and properties by suspected hoodlums who embarked on destruction of police stations.
The Governor noted that the youths had the rights to hold the leaders accountable but it should be done in due process.
According to him, “You can’t kill a policeman and then behead him and be showing his head to the world. What do you want the world to believe? Where does it happen in the international community? This is how civil war starts.
“I feel there is a need to have a national conference and state conference in most of the States. It is important, between the youths and the elders, political office holders because there is a lot of misinformation.
He revealed his preparedness to convoke a state conference by January 2021, to discuss lots of issues that affect the youths of the state.
