VON DG makes case for Nnamdi Kanu

0 61

Days after some elders of the Southeast of the country visited President Muhammadu Buhari to solicit for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the Director General of Voice of Nigeria (VON), Osita Okechukwu, has also asked the President to release the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Speaking with journalists on Sunday in Abuja, Okechukwu also asked IPOB to support a candidate of Igbo extraction in the 2023 presidential election.

“I join Ohaneze Ndigbo, eminent constitutional lawyer and chairman, Igbo leaders of thought, professor Ben Nwabueze, and people of goodwill nationwide in commending President Muhammadu Buhari for accepting to consider the release of the held leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu,”  Okechukwu said.

“I also appeal to IPOB to support Nigeria President of Igbo extraction 2023 project. Methinks IPOB support will kill two birds with one stone.

“All am saying is that Mr President and a host of other Nigerians are silently in support of Nigeria president of Igbo extraction 2023 project, but are wary and reticent of IPOB stance.

“Therefore, in my little opinion, IPOB support of our project will kill two birds with one stone. My understanding of IPOB agitation is to end Igbo marginalisation, if that’s the case then our 2023 Nigeria President of Igbo extraction will be the end of the civil war. Nigerians are waiting for IPOB to change gear.”

Buhari, had during meeting with the southeast elders last week, said he would consider releasing Kanu.
