The Managing director-Full general of Vox of Nigeria, VON, Mr. Osita Okechukwu has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to honour Igbo elders with the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
DAILY POST had reported that the Igbo leaders, led by elderberry statesman Principal Mbazulike Amaechi met with Buhari in Abuja where they begged for Kanu’s release.
Speaking to journalists, Okechukwu also appealed to the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to back up Nigeria president of Igbo extraction 2023 projection.
“I bring together, Ohaneze Ndigbo, eminent constitutional lawyer and Chairman, Igbo Leaders of Thought, Prof Ben Nwabueze, and people of goodwill nationwide in commending President Muhammadu Buhari for accepting to consider the release of held leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
“I also appeal to IPOB to back up Nigeria President of Igbo extraction 2023 projection. Methinks IPOB back up will kill 2 birds with one stone,” Okechukwu submitted.
Asked whether IPOB back up for Nigeria president of Igbo extraction 2023 projection is a precondition, for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Okechukwu said:
“Working capital No! it is not a precondition, all am saying is that Mr President and host of other Nigerians are silently in back up of Nigeria president of Igbo extraction 2023 projection, but are weary and reticent of IPOB stance. So, in my little view, IPOB back up of our projection will kill 2 birds with one stone.”
Prodded farther, Okechukwu explained that “one stone is the release of Mazi Kanu, some other is the homecoming of economical activities in our geopolitical zone and
thirdly IPOB back up will no uncertainty rekindle wider back up of Nigeria president of Igbo extraction 2023 projection.
“My understanding of IPOB agitation is to stop Igbo marginalization; whether that’s the example and so our 2023 Nigeria President of Igbo extraction will be the stop of the civil state of war. Nigerians are waiting for IPOB to alter gear.”
