Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, has praised Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State, his Enugu State counterpart, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, and Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State for taking aggressive steps in commemorating Biafra Day.
Remember that Nnamdi Kanu had proposed a sit-in to commemorate this year’s Biafra Day and to show his gratitude to all those who have died in the struggle for Biafra independence since 1976.
Kanu praised Governor Obiano’s mental strength in erecting a cenotaph in honor of fallen Biafra icons in a live broadcast Monday morning via Facebook and other web-based media platforms.
He also praised Gov. Ugwuanyi for releasing members of the Zionist Biafra group who had been imprisoned for months.
The IPOB leader also praised Governor Ikpeazu’s courage in speaking the truth to power when he said on Sunday night that Abia brokers will not be forced to open their businesses today if they choose not to do so.
Kanu also reluctantly praised Umahi’s decision to abandon his previous threat to seize any shopkeeper in Ebonyi who closed business in response to the sit-at-home order.
He expressed his gratitude to the governors for their actions. “Perhaps they’re beginning to apologize, but I’d rather wait until I’m convinced they’ve done so before declaring them to have done so. If they’ve repented, that’ll be good for all of us.”
