Ohanaeze reacts to Tinubu's stance on releasing Nnamdi Kanu

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has lauded President Bola Tinubu's contemplation of releasing Nnamdi Kanu by December 2023.

According to Ohanaeze, the decision, if implemented, would have significant implications for the political landscape in the Southeast.

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization stated this in a statement signed by its Secretary General Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro on Thursday.

"It has come to our attention that certain mischievous Igbo political elites and deviant opportunists are attempting to take undue credit for Nnamdi Kanu's potential release. Ohanaeze Ndigbo urges President Tinubu not to entertain any visits or demands from these individuals, as the credit for Kanu's release should solely be attributed to him.

"Furthermore, we emphasize that the effects of Nnamdi Kanu's release will gradually diminish the rising popularity of both Peter Obi and Simon Ekpa in the Southeast. Politically, the Igbo nation will consider President Tinubu as a viable candidate over Peter Obi in the 2027 elections.

"Additionally, from a security perspective, Ekpa's disruptive activities and terrorist tendencies in the Southeast will be consigned to the annals of history.

"Ohanaeze Ndigbo urges President Tinubu to remain resolute in his decision-making process regarding Nnamdi Kanu's release. We assure him that the Igbo nation stands behind him, and we trust that he will handle this matter with utmost care and consideration", the statement reads.
