Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s submission that he cannot release IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu, an elder and former governor of Anambra State, Chief Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has expressed disappointment over Buhari’s statement that Nnamdi Kanu will not be released from detention.
According to him , “There is nothing we can do. After the meeting, the people who are familiar with him said he responded to us truthfully and that he took our case very seriously and that his answer gives hope.”
He stated that, “We went away with that, that there is hope. But for him now to, in public, rubbish all that happened, I am bound to be disappointed and so would be my friends who were there.”
He added that, “One thing we can still do is this, Nnamdi is detained, Igboho was put in a crisis position, the South attacked and some people were killed, so many other complaints as well. The Ijaw people are complaining, the Middle Belt has declared their non-compliance anymore and South-South has been in that shape.”
He maintained that, “I don’t want to just say I am very disappointed because I am very much interested in Nigeria surviving. So, I suggest this caucus of knowledgeable people who can work out a new arrangement politically for Nigeria. The political solution is the only one that can solve the problem.”
