The new changes were communicated in a press statement signed by Governor Rochas Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary, CPS, Mr. Samuel Onwuemeodo.

Recall that the meeting, which was initially slated for this weekend in Owerri, the Imo State capital, was moved to Enugu, for strategic reasons.

Okorocha’s spokesman also explained that “the venue of the meeting has also been moved from Owerri to Enugu, which has been the traditional headquarters of the South-East states”.

Giving the reason for the postponement, the statement said it was informed by the need for all those expected at the meeting to be in attendance.

“The South-East governors, Ohanaeze leadership and others who will be at the meeting will deliberate on the pro-Biafra protests that had gained momentum in recent time and for the governors and other leaders to do what they are expected to do in the circumstance”, the CPS said.
