The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajuddeen Abbas, has urged Igbo leaders in the South East to engage the federal government to address the legitimate grievances of their people.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Musa Abdullahi Krishi, Abbas made the call in his address at the launch of the Peace in the South East Project (PISE-P) held in his deputy’s hometown, Bende LGA, Abia State, on Friday.

The PISE-P is an initiative of the Deputy Speaker, Benjamin Okezie Kalu, to bring peace, end violent agitations and insecurity in the region.

Abbas lamented that despite the South East’s economic strength, agitations in the zone had caused it colossal losses. He noted that peace in the South East was, by extension, peace and progress of the entire Nigeria.

He explained that PISE-P was borne out of his deputy’s deep love for the zone and profound concern over the rise of insecurity “which has cast a dark shadow over the region.”

Similarly, Hon Kalu, in a statement by his spokesman, Livinus Nwabughiogu, stated that he initiated PISE-P to foster peace, unity and development in the South East.

It would be recalled that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, through Vice President Kashim Shettima, unveiled the project in Bende on Friday.
