Governor Umahi of Ebonyi State said yesterday in a television interview that there was a need to set aside a date to commemorate the Igbo who died during the three-year war, adding that there was nothing wrong with it. He stated that if a proposal to do so is presented to the South East governors, they will consider it.
He explained why May 30 should be set aside as a day to remember the dead in Anambra, Abia, Enonyi, Enugu, and Imo states, saying that if the country can recognise June 12 as Democracy Day to honour MKO Abiola, the winner of the 1993 presidential election, there was nothing wrong with setting aside a day to remember the five million Igbo killed during the war.
