Imo in­di­genes task con­fab del­e­gates on in­ter­est of Ig­bos

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

By Mike Oboh The Imo Con­sul­ta­tive As­sem­bly (ICA) which is made up of Imo in­di­genes res­i­dent in Abuja has ad­vised Imo del­e­gates to the on-go­ing na­tional con­fer­ence to be alive to their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties while the con­fer­ence lasts.

Ac­cord­ing to a state­ment signed by Bar­ris­ter Maxwell Alaeto and Nkonye Kings­ley Evarest, con­vener and sec­re­tary of the group re­spec­tively, it ad­vised the del­e­gates to al­ways pro­tect the in­ter­est of the state and by ex­ten­sion, all Igbo states in their de­lib­er­a­tions at the con­fer­ence.

It re­minded the del­e­gates that its mem­bers were mon­i­tor­ing their con­tri­bu­tions at the con­fer­ence and said should they fail to pur­sue the course of the state, pos­ter­ity will not fail to judge them harshly.

The group pointed out that the de­ci­sion of the con­fer­ence to set­tle for 70% as a bench-mark for tak­ing de­ci­sions, es­pe­cially on those is­sues that con­sen­sus can­not re­solve, has put the South-East geo-po­lit­i­cal zone in a great dis­ad­van­tage.

It how­ever ad­vised del­e­gates from the state not to lose sight of the qual­ity of pa­tri­o­tism ex­pected of them, such that was pur­sued by the late Dr Sam Onunaka Mbakwe.

The group said it is aware of moves be­ing made by del­e­gates from other geo-po­lit­i­cal zones to buy their col­leagues, but ad­vised that where such lobby is against the in­ter­est of Imo people, they should not yield to it.
