Ikpeazu Tells FG To Discuss With Nnamdi Kanu

The Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has asked the federal government to discuss with the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

He said the government should listen to what Kanu is saying about the marginalization of the Igbo in Nigeria, warning that nobody can win a battle of conscience through the courts.

The Governor who made this known in Umuahia on Tuesday stated that he may not be a fan of the IPOB leader but wants some of the issues he has raised to be looked into.

“The federal government needs to sit down and discuss with Nnamdi Kanu and ask what can we do. We can stay at the table to listen to what he is saying. 

"You can’t win a battle of conscience through the court. Do we need Nnamdi Kanu to tell us that there is no Igbo in the hierarchy of service chiefs in Nigeria?

"Do we need Nnamdi Kanu to tell us that Ndigbo is marginalized in Nigeria? Do we need Nnamdi Kanu to tell us that rice that was sold for N10k, now goes for N40k? You need to listen to the Igbo who are the only true Nigerian.

“How many times have you seen Babalola Nigeria Limited in Azikiwe road, Aba? How many times have you seen Alhaji Kazaure Nigeria Limited in Umuahia? But there’s no street in the South West or North that you don’t see Igbo businesses,” he said.
