Nnamdi Kanu is Agitating For Biafra Because of Selfish Interest – Rabiu Kwankwaso

2 Min Read

The Senator representing Kano Central, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has said that Nnamdi Kanu’s agitation for Biafra is borne out of selfishness.


There have been agitations for the creation of an independent state of Biafra by several groups, mainly the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).


However, Daily Post reports the former Kano State Governor to have said this in an interview where he bared his mind on the recent development.


“The unity and development of the country,” he said, “is key to all other things, therefore we will continue to stand by it. Therefore, I call on all to join hands in ensuring that there is peace.


“We should use our resources to ensure that nobody raise hands to destroy the unity of the country.  Talking of secession is going too far.


“Some people doing it because of their personal interest. I wouldn’t be surprised that the young man (Nnamdi Kanu) will contest for an election in the next general elections. They started agitation to galvanize support and at the end, they would contest for an election.”


Kanu was granted bail about two months ago after the Federal Government ordered for his arrest over treasonable felony.


Also recall that a coalition of youth groups in the northern part of the country had given a quit notice to Igbos in the region, citing their agitation for the creation of Biafra.
