The meeting of South East caucus and their colleagues at the National Assembly was held in the Apo Legislative quarters of the National Assembly yesterday.

The statement from the meeting are given below;
"Rising from a meeting of National Assembly Caucus of the South East Geo political zone of the country, the following resources were reached.

" We call on IPOB to suspend all its activities as we engage our colleagues in the National Assembly and work with them in addressing all issues of concern to IPOB in particular, snd the entire people of the SouthEast in general.

"We appreciate the efforts of the South East governors and the leadership of Ohaneze Ndigbo in the handling of the agitations in the South East with regards to the confrontation of the military with IPOB, especially in Abia State.

" We condemn all acts of terrorism in the case of IPOB, we reject the branding of any organization in Nigeria as terrorist without cause or following due process where such cause exists. We take this position because of the implication of such branding to innocent citizens from the area who may be affected by the consequences.

"The branding, we believe, will foreclose any possible dialogue that will bring about a peaceful end to the activities of such group.

"We call on the leadership of Nigeria to look into the problems that feeds the never ending agitation by the youths of the South East and other geo-political zones in the country.

" We condemn the use of hate speeches and remarks by anybody as the dignity of person must be respected at all times, even while dissenting on any issue.

"We affirm our support for unity of Nigeria anchored on justice, equity and fair treatment to all parts of the country."
