A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Joe Igbokwe has lambasted governors and other leaders of the southeast region, describing them as deaf and dumb. Mr Igbokwe who is currently serving as the Special Assistant on Gutter and Drainage to the Lagos State Governor has called for a State of emergency in the South East following the killing of Dr. Chike Akunyili, Dora’s Husband on Tuesday.
Recall that Akunyiliwas killed at Umuoji in Idemili North LGA of Anambra State on Tuesday evening.
Reacting over the ugly incident, Igbokwe said since South East Governors are now deaf and dumb, the Federal government should declare State of emergency.
According to him, “SINCE GOVERNORS AND OUR LEADERS IN THE SOUTH EAST ARE NOW DEAF AND DUMB LET ME SAY IT WITH ALL THE EMPHASIS IN MY COMMAND THAT FG SHOULD DECLARE STATE OF EMERGENCY IN THE SE.”
Dr. Chike Akunyili was husband to late former Information Minister, Prof. Dora Akunyili.
