Former governor of Abia state and now a member of All Progressives Congress (APC) today visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Kuje Prison as part of moves negotiate his release.
Some prominent son and daughters of Southeast have however expressed mixed feelings about the latest move by Mr. Kalu.
Kalu said on his Facebook page that “Today, I visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Kuje Prison and we engaged in a very long discussion. Kanu is my brother and a son of the soil. He shouldn’t be where he is because Kuje Prison is not his home. It is therefore my utmost concern to see him regain his freedom like every other Nigerian.”
The question is not about negotiating Kanu’s release from jail but why is he there in the first place. And why are all Igbos in the current administration of Buhari not questioning, protesting and/or resigning from this APC murderous government?
Kanu is also British. Is Britain still clinging to her age old alliance with Northerners? Is there any doubt? And Thank God Obama is leaving office soon. His soft spot for anyone or anything Islamic is globally glaring.
For having joined APC, Kalu leaves us questioning his political motive. Is it for personal or regional interests? And where is Ohaneze in all these? Well, may be Nwodo will be more daring than whoever has been leading Ohaneze in the past. Igbos are still waiting for a leader. Hope. That’s all we have. Hope.
