The Ebonyi State governor, David Umahi has said that it was within the fundamental human rights of people to agitate but what mattered most was the way the person goes about it.

Umahi, who is the Chairman of the South-East Governors Forum stated this while fielding questions from journalists after meeting with the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo over quit notice issued to Igbos living in the north by AREWA group.

The meeting, which was attended by the 5 South-East state governors, and Igbo leaders was to proffer a solution over the ultimatum given to Ndi-Igbo by Northern Coalition group to leave the 19 Northern States before October 1 this year.
