Leaders of South East geo-political zone met in Enugu Thursday reaffirming their strong belief in the continued unity of Nigeria.

Rising from the meeting which lasted several hours, former governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha told newsmen said the dialogue was very timely.

He said: “This is a very timely meeting and the whole essence is for peace and unity in Igbo land and Nigeria.

“We believe in the unity of this country and we believe in the entity called Nigeria and all Igbos do believe so.

“We are deeply touched by the recent happenings and we never imagined that it will take that dimension in Igbo land.

“So, we are here to reassure our youths and also to reassure Nigerians that we will take the necessary steps to correct some of the things perceived as wrong doing and to let Nigerians know that Igbo’s are part and parcel of this country and we remain so, unquestionably.

“What binds us together is much more than the party line that divided us. So we have begun to realise that and we owe it a duty to build a better future for this generation and indeed future generation of Ndigbo.

“We are getting old, we are not getting younger at all and we don’t want to be asked what did we do during our time.

“So, we are making every frantic effort to correct some of the mistakes of the past and to give our youth a sense of belonging and a very nice road map with which to cope with things of life.

"So, we have decided to come together, be it APC, PDP, on anything that concerns the Igbo Nation and Nigeria Nation."

Those at the meeting were Governors of Enugu, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia.

Imo and Anambra were represented by their deputies.

Others are, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo, Senator Sam Egwu, Senator Uche Ekwunife, Ohaneze President Chief Nnia Nwodo among others.
