Eminent lawyer and elder statesman, Prof. Ben Nwabueze has said that the leader of Independent People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has mandated him to declare to Nigerians that he is ready to call off the struggle for Biafra if there is progress made in restructuring Nigeria.
Nwabueze said this on Thursday during a press conference by Southern Leaders of Thought at Chief Rotimi Williams Chambers, Ilupeju Lagos.
Nwabueze who is the leader of the group, warned that “President Buhari will be looking for trouble if he tries to usurp the constitutional powers of the people to ask for a better Nigeria through a change in structure.
“The power to restructure belongs to the people, not the National Assembly, and the government must not toy with this for the peace of the nation.
“Kanu has mandated me to declare to Nigeria that he is ready to call off the struggle for Biafra if progress is made in restructuring Nigeria.”
