What Igbo leaders must tell Nnamdi Kanu – Ezeife | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

A former governor of Anambra State, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has advised the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government on what it must not do to the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, and his followers.

Ezeife said crushing the group will not help in the search for enduring peace and resolution of the nagging questions of disenchantment that gave rise to the agitation he led.

Speaking, the Igbo leader said that the issue should be on how to save Nigeria, which he said has failed woefully.

Buhari appears set to crack down Kanu and his IPOB, with marching order to his service chiefs earlier in the week.

But Ezeife advised, “Invoking the wrath of the law helps nobody. What is necessary is that we, the elders of Igboland, should speak reason in the head of Kanu.

“He has done great already, but he is overstepping bounds. For example, he said that the November 18 gubernatorial election in Anambra State would not hold.

“If that comes to pass, what does he think would happen? The Federal Government would declare a state of emergency in Anambra and choose whom they like to be the sole administrator of that state.

“Would Kanu like that, would any clear thinking person like that? That will be creating another opportunity for the Federal Government to devastate the South East the more.

“The issue is that when a young man is making progress, especially being adored by the people, he may go beyond reason without knowing it; with all his good intentions, he may go beyond reason. Instead of castigating him, let us talk reason into his head.”

    2. Yes talk sense into his head as he abuses Yorubas and Hausas. Is dat right? And instead of Igbo elders like Amaechi, Nwabueze and others caution him, they are applauding him. When things go out of hands these leaders will be d first to die owing to old age. Let them die peacefully instead of allowing d bastard to kill them becos of his ambition.
