    That word ” Abakaliki people ” is derogatory and that Bisi Kazeem should openly apologise to Ebonyi people. I am not from Ebonyi but have viewed his choice of language as belittling my friends from that state. The current governor of Ebonyi state should demand an open apology from the FRSC as an organisation.
