APGA Presidential Candidate, Umeadi Reveals Plan For Nnamdi Kanu




APGA Presidential Candidate, Umeadi Reveals Plan For Nnamdi Kanu If He Wins 2023 Election

The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) presidential candidate, Prof. Peter Umeadi has fashioned out the ‘best way’ to handle the case of the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Umeadi while speaking live on Channels Television on Thursday said if he emerges as President in the 2023 election, a political solution would be considered for Kanu, Naija News reports.

According to him, Kanu cannot be released that easily, but giving him amnesty would be fair enough.

Recall that Kanu was arrested and repatriated to Nigeria from Kenya last year.

The IPOB leader who is also a British citizen was apprehended and has been held captive and tried by the Nigerian government for treasonable felony against President Muhammadu Buhari and his administration.

Speaking yesterday on the status of the Biafra group leader, Umeadi who was a former Chief Judge of Anambra State, said “I will consider a political solution. When you consider a political solution, you don’t just release him.

“You have to put everything into place, after all, we had the issue of amnesty and you know how much Nigeria spent on amnesty. That’s a political solution. We will fashion something akin to that.”

Meanwhile, former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore has reacted to the court affirmation on Thursday which declared him the National Chairman of the African Action Congress (AAC).

Sowore was affirmed as the National Chairman of the party by a Court of Appeal in Abuja, Naija News recalls.

The court in its ruling on Thursday noted that a 2019 judgement by the High Court which sacked Sowore as the chairman of AAC was out of the court’s jurisdiction, adding that it was an internal affair.

Justice Iyang Ekwo in a judgement in 2019 had ruled that it was satisfied that Sowore had been suspended by the National Executive Committee of the party.

The Appeal Court, however, nullified the judgement on Thursday and declared Sowore as the national chairman against Leonard Nzenwa.
