NEWS UPDATE: IPOB: No need to detain Kanu, governors have divided Nigeria – HURIWA tells Buhari

The Human Rights Writers Organization of Nigeria, HURIWA, has insisted that the Federal authorities under President Muhammadu Buhari has no basis in law and morality to detain Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).

HURIWA said this is because the Southern and Northern governors have already divided the country by their actions, inactions, speeches and conflicts around which zone betwixt N/S produces the next president in 2023.

HURIWA said this spell reacting to Northern Governors’ rejection of powerfulness shift to the S.

Recall that the Northern Governors’ Forum (NGF) had on Monday said that the S’s insistence on producing the next president of Nigeria contradicts the provisions of the constitution.

Lately, Southern governors had insisted that their part make Nigeria’s next president.

Reacting to the evolution, HURIWA, in a statement signed by Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, the National Coordinator of the rights body, on Tuesday, said there is no basis for Northern Nigeria to insist on producing Buhari’s successor whether their intention is not to displace for the eventual split of Nigeria in 2023.

The statement read in division, “We are ever to a greater extent convinced beyond the shadows of doubts that the actions, inactions, speeches, threats made by governors of N versus S have shown that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his unarmed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) are prisoners of conscience and the members and leader of this otherwise proscribed IPOB must be released at once since fifty-fifty the governors who are exercising constitutional powers are saying those same divisive sentiments and positions espoused by IPOB.

“Infact, the governors are terrorizing the peace of Nigeria by failing to peacefully concur to the transfer of presidential powerfulness from the N to the S in 2023 which is the irreducible minimum status precedent for Nigeria to remain as a United entity beyond 2023. The arguments and actions of the governors, the president and the Northern dominated Appeal Tribunal on the collection of the value-added taxation shows that the presidency, the governors and the courts are at present to be categorized as functional secessionists because this divisiveness and actions are stoking upwards tensions in Nigeria and are capable of inflaming passion and creating an uncontrollable schism betwixt N and S and eventually dovetail into a civil clash which may guide to the segmentation of Nigeria by 2023.

“The Forum reiterates its commitment to the politics of fairness, fairness, and unanimously agreed that the presidency of Nigeria be rotated betwixt southern and northern Nigeria and resolved that the next president of Nigeria should emerge from the southward,” Rotimi Akeredolu, Ondo province governor, said on behalf of the Southern Governors Forum (SGF).”
