For South-East Elections To Hold, Nnamdi Kanu Should Be Released – Soludo

Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, Governor of Anambra State, has reaffirmed his plea for the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, who has been detained since 2021.

Kanu’s release, according to Soludo, will play an important part in the calm build-up to the upcoming general election, which will take place next month.

The governor made these remarks during an appearance on Channels TV’s ‘Politics Today,’ dubbed ‘One-on-One with Governor Soludo,’ on Thursday.

“The potential of being president is in the hands of God, and only He knows who will be living to become whatever,” Soludo stated of his rumored presidential ambition.

He stated that insecurity has become a massive concern and a major threat to the 2023 elections in the South-East, and that crucial stakeholders such as Kanu must be present at the table when security in the region is discussed.

He also praised the President, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd. ), for his quick response to security concerns, not just in Anambra, but throughout the South-East.

The governor stated that he authored the post about the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, for the sake of history, adding that he was just concentrating on his governorship duties for the time being.

He said, “I have just been elected the governor of Anambra State. I have travelled to several countries and served in the highest office. I am right now serving my people and I am concentrating on giving my people quality governance.

“My party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance, is also contesting in the presidential race and we are vying to win. My party will be on the ballot and I have the right to campaign as vigorously as I can for my party and that is what I am doing.

“Our major focus is delivering on our plans of security, not just in Anambra, but the entire South-East and that is why we are calling for the immediate release of Kanu because he has to be part of the conversation.

“We have instituted a commission of inquiry in this conversation, but this is not enough if we do not have critical forces like Kanu around the table for conversation.

“We want the South-East to participate in this election and we need Kanu. We are saying grant him administrative bail and I am prepared to stand as his surety and to provide him whenever he is required.”
