The Ebonyi State House of Assembly has given Anambra State government seven days ultimatum to restore the status of Abakaliki street it earlier renamed.

It said, failure to do this will make the House mandate Ebonyi State to “rename all structures named after Anambra people and towns with immediate effect”.

This was the resolution of the House after its Wednesday plenary. They also resolved that Anambra State government must apologise to the people of Ebonyi State.

A street hitherto known ‘Abakaliki street’ in Awka, was recently renamed ‘Club street’ by Anambra, but the people of Ebonyi state were not happy with the development.

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi had in a press statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Emmanuel Uzor, tackled his colleague, Governor Willie Obiano, for renaming the street.

He said most states in the region especially Anambra always seize every opportunity to “look down on Abakaliki man and urged them to eschew the discrimination”.
