Dialogue with separatist groups, Iwuanyanwu advises govt
Ubah urges IPOB leader’s release to douse tension
Elder statesman, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, has advised the Federal Government to dialogue with all separatist groups in the interest of peace.
He gave the advice yesterday at the 27th combined convocation of 6,206 graduates of the Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education (AIFCE), Owerri, attended by representative of the President and Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, provost of the institution, Dr. Dan Chijioke Anyanwu, Chief of Staff, Government House, Owerri, Nnamdi Anyaehi among others.
According to him, dialoguing with the agitators would bring peace to the nation.
IN a related development, candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP) for the November 6, 2021 governorship election in Anambra State, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, yesterday, pleaded with the Federal Government to release the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to douse the tension in the South East.
Ubah, who represents Anambra South in the National Assembly, made the appeal in a statement issued yesterday in Abuja.
In the press release signed by Director, Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah Campaign Organisation, Kamen Chuks Ogbonna, the gubernatorial hopeful implored the current administration to critically examine the issues surrounding Kanu’s arrest and detention.
It read in part: “We strongly believe that if the Federal Government finds a political solution to the Nnamdi Kanu issue, the present insecurity in Anambra State will come to an abrupt end, as the politically sponsored bandits killing people under this guise will have no further excuse at their disposal.”
