Act Now! – Ohanaeze Youths To Buhari
The Ohanaeze Youths Council, OYC, has urged the President, Muhammadu Buhari to take the initiative and immediately start negotiation with the embattled Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Recall that the embattled IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu is still in detention at the Kuje Prisons after facing treasonable charges in an Abuja High Court.
The youths urged Buhari to use the opportunity of the on-going negotiation between some Niger Delta groups and representatives of the Federal Government to negotiate Nnamdi Kanu’s release fro jail.
Recall that the embattled IPOB leader has also indicated his interest in a dialoguue with the Federal Government. His interest was communicated last week through his legal counsels.
Speaking on the issue, the National President of the Ohanaeze Youth Council, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro said: “This is a much-awaited opportunity which should be utilized to end the bitterness against the Federal Government by people of the South-East.
“We call on President Muhammadu Buhari not to allow this golden opportunity slip off his hands.
“It is our firm belief that Buhari will engrave his name as a hero of democracy if he utilized this opportunity to free Nnamdi Kanu”.
The youth president however suggested that the embattled IPOB leader should be allowed the fair chance to lead his delegation to the dialogue.
He said: “For the dialogue to be genuine and fruitful, Kanu should lead the IPOB delegation. Nobody or group should negotiate on his behalf; this is to avoid a situation where the government will end up wasting time and resources.
“If the government succeeds in this regard, it would no doubt endear it to Ndigbo and help in healing so many wounds”.
