A Third Republic Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has said the arrest of IPOB’s Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho might help to fast-track discussions relating to restructuring.
According to the elder statesman, the clampdown on Kanu and Igboho indicates that the federal government wants the south out of Nigeria.
The former governor called on the Muhammadu Buhari-led government to use this opportunity to negotiate with the southern part of the country on Nigeria’s unity.
“Well, we are praying that the whole issue be converted to a dialogue. Let us dialogue on why IPOB is crying.
“Why are people like me saying the Federal Government is pushing us out of Nigeria? Can we dialogue in the interest of one peaceful Nigeria? Can we dialogue on developing, growing one Nigeria?
“So, the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu might fast-track achieving the restructuring and fairness of Nigerian system.
“As the same with (Sunday) Igboho in Yorubaland, seen as an opposition by the Nigerian government.
“Why would Yoruba or Igbo want to go if they are treated well because nobody is born into slavery in their own country?” Ezeife told SaharaReporters.
