The recent decision of the Abia State Government to disengage non-indigenes in its work force has created cracks in the hitherto strong political and cultural harmony that existed among the five South East states of Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo. As expected there have been verbal attacks from the states, especially the other four South East states.

When the Abia State Government hinted of the planned disengagement of the non-indigenes in August, Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State was said to have consulted with the governors of the other four states. The other governors were said to have indicated their willingness to take back their indigenes to be returned.

But when the October 1, 2011 effective date of the policy came, governments of the other states reacted angrily, a position that queried the consultation said to have been made by Governor Orji.

Imo State Government was the first to condemn the action, saying that it would rubbish the harmony and unity among Ndigbo. Imo claimed that currently, there were more Abia people in its work force than Imo indigenes in Abia’s. Ebonyi followed suit, first, saying that Abia had not communicated to them on the issue.

Anambra and Enugu have also condemned it even as their Houses of Assembly have also condemned the action. Indignes from states outside the Southeast including Nasarawa, Rivers, Edo , Delta and Cross River among others were also affected. Remarkably Abia women who married some of these non-indigenes were also disengaged.

Abia government officials have, however, remained unmoving saying the action was in the best interest of the state.
