The Security Advisory Committee was
created by the South-East Governors Forum,whose Chairman, Gov. David Umahi of Ebonyi State is the blood brother of Obi Umahi.
In a statement by Abia Onyike,
Chairman, ADF Media and Publicity Bureau, the Foundation said that after a review of the action of the erstwhile chairman, they had come to the conclusion:
“1. That the resignation by Gen. Umahi has exposed the poverty of leadership in the South-East Governors Forum.
“2. The resignation further shows that Gen. Umahi must have been tired and embarrassed by his brother’s unending antics over the security issue in Igboland. This resignation has vindicated the position of the ADF President, Prof. Uzodinma Nwala who was the first to resign as a member of the Security Advisory Committee in August, 2021 when he noticed the unpreparedness to implement the Ime-Obi Ohanaeze resolution of February, 2020 to set up the Regional Security Architecture.
“3. This development has sealed off expectations that the South East Governors can effectively brace up to the challenges of insecurity for the region.
“4. It also means that the people may have been abandoned to fend for themselves, since the so-called Ebubeagu Regional Security outfit which the Governors claimed to have created only partially started in Ebonyi and yet to commence in the other four South-East states.
“5. What is required now in Alaigbo is not a foreign based security outfit but one that is indigenous, and guided by the experience and wisdom of the stakeholders and patriotic elders in Alaigbo and whoever says we don’t have such men in Alaigbo, must have their heads medically examined.”
