Why Nnamdi Kanu should be freed -Ifeanyi Ubah
Governorship candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP) in the forthcoming election in Anambra State, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, has said that freedom for the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will end the spate of insecurity in the South East.
Ubah, made this assertion during his engagements with Ndi Anambra businessmen at the Alaba International Market in Lagos. He represents Anambra South in the Senate.
“We strongly believe that if the Federal Government finds a political solution to the Nnamdi Kanu issue, the present insecurity in Anambra State will come to an abrupt end as the politically sponsored bandits killing people under this guise will have no further excuse at their disposal,” Ubah said.
According to a statement by the Director, Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah Campaign Organisation, Hon. Kamen Chuks Ogbonna, in Abuja, Ubah urged the Federal Government to critically examine the issues surrounding the arrest and detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
According to the statement, the team had robust discussions and exchanges of ideas on the various issues surrounding the development of the South East.
“In the course of the conversation, some youth leaders used the opportunity of the visit to express their sadness to the Senator over the raging issue of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s detention and pleaded with him to intervene on the matter,” a statement by Ubah’s media team said.
The Senator assured them that there are ongoing efforts behind the scenes at finding a political solution to the problem.
“He also promised to relay their message to the Federal Government with regards to the need to treat the issue as vital especially since some opposition party players have cashed in on it to create artificial insecurity in Anambra State and trigger voter apathy in the process as a cover for writing results illegally.
“It is our firm belief that this burning issue should not in any way be politicised but rather it be given the due attention that it requires,” Senator Ubah said.
