Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has reacted to the letter forwarded to President Muhammadu Buhari by South-East Governors.
Recall that Naija News had earlier reported that governors from the south-east region sent a letter to President Buhari over the closure of Akanu Ibiam International Airport and the recent attacks on people of the region by suspected herdsmen.
The Governors in the letter signed by the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, urged President Buhari to approve their request by banning herdsmen without cattle and movement of cattle by foot in the zone.
The South-East governors also demanded a postponement of the closure of the airport, saying that this will enable them to make adequate arrangements for airport users in the zone as well as carry out some remedial works on the Airport.
The IPOB leader in his reaction condemned the South-East governors over the letter to Buhari over cattle and herdsmen in the region.
Nnamdi Kanu described the letter as a shame to the Igbo.
Kanu who took to his Twitter account wrote, “It’s a shame that the Umahi-led SE Govs have turned to beg for the approval of Jubril (aka Buhari) on a simple matter of controlling “movement of CATTLE by foot” in South East.”
“Cattle is livestock. The Zoo Constitution allows the State/LGAs (not the President) to regulate it. Sad!”
