Osita Okechukwu

The Director-General of Voice of Nigeria, VON, Mr. Osita Okechukwu has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to honor Igbo elders with the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

The Igbo leaders, led by elder statesman Chief 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 support Nigeria’s president of the Igbo extraction 2023 project.

“I join, 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 the held leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

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

Asked if IPOB support for Nigeria president of Igbo extraction 2023 project is a precondition, for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Okechukwu said:

“Capital No! it is not a precondition, all am saying is that Mr. President and 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.”

Prodded further, Okechukwu explained that “one stone is the release of Mazi Kanu, another is the return of economic activities in our geopolitical zone and
thirdly IPOB support will no doubt rekindle wider support of Nigeria president of Igbo extraction 2023 project.

“My understanding of IPOB agitation is to end Igbo marginalization; 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.”
