South-east Council of traditional Rulers has challenged president Buhari to consider some of the grievances of the agitators of the Biafra movement including those of Indigenous People of Biafra[IPOB]

In the presentation made available to newsmen, the monarchs who assured Mohammadu Buhari of their support to his Government, said the neglect of the south-east in the amnesty programme, the deplorable state of federal roads and other infrastructure in the region and relegation of oil producing states in the southeast in the Niger Delta Development Commission[NDDC], projects, and the exclusion of southeast in the federal appointments were responsible for the youths restiveness.

Other issues raised by the agitators, according to him, were anti-nationalistic treatment of Igbo  people by other Nigerians.
