“At the meeting, the governor advised Mbaise people to change their style of politics which is too clannish both in practice and in words to enable them attract the support of other parts of the state to produce the governor of the state one day.
The governor stated that before now, the Political Leaders in Mbaise had enthroned a very disturbing political development or practice that portrayed the people of the area as clannish which has unfortunately alienated them from most of the other areas in the state.
He praised Mbaise people for being industrious, intelligent, resourceful, united and enterprising, and that they have been due to produce the governor of the state long before now but regretted that Mbaise people alone cannot produce a governor without the rest of Imo people.”
