Ebonyi state will not be sending delegates to today’s ‘Handshake across the Niger’ conference scheduled to take place in Enugu because the organizers did not carry Ebonyi along in the conception and planning of the meeting.

The state Governor David Umahi stated this in Abakaliki on Wednesday when he received the local organizing committee, LOC, of the meeting led by Capital oil CEO, Dr. Ifanyi Ubah.

The meeting being organized by Nzukor Umunna, a socio-cultural organization affiliated to Ohaneze Ndigbo is aimed at x-raying the past, present and future of Igbo/Yoruba relationship and seek for ways to boost them.

But receiving the group at the Executive Council Chambers of the Government House Abakaliki, Governor Umahi frowned at the neglect of the state in the organization of the event.

He noted that no notable Ebonyi person is in the committee organizing the event.

Mr. Umahi also noted that the committee neglected to inform him of the event on time adding that he decided to receive them because of the high regard he has for Mr. Ubah.

He, however, promised to attend future engagements of the organization if the abnormally is addressed

Umahi also advised Igbo businessmen and industrialists to mind their business and stop meddling into politics like their counterparts from the North and Western part of the country.

Details later……………..
