What I don’t like about Nnamdi Kanu – Ojukwu | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Chief Sylvester Debe Ojukwu, the eldest son of the late Biafran warlord, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu has revealed where leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu is going wrong.

Ojukwu said although Kanu had every right to agitate for Biafra Republic, his utter disdain for people’s right was wrong.

Speaking with Sun, Ojukwu noted that the renewed clamour for Biafra might not be unconnected with some inadequacies and misapplication of powers in the nation.

On where Kanu is going wrong, Ojukwu said, “It’s the seeming disregard for the rights of others. If you agitate, fill up the roads, block the roads, you are impeding on peoples right of movement, you are trampling on the rights of others. I have always said that.

“If you are protesting peacefully, you can go to the stadium, you can go to a public place, get a police permit to do that and then get the media houses to record you and expose it to the whole world for viewing.”

Asked if Kanu has filled the vacuum his late father left behind, the ex-police officer said, “Like I told you, I cannot go into that, I’m not saying his shoes are too big or not and I cannot subscribe to the notion that my father failed to groom a successor.

“At a point, he always said he had no successor. He said he had a good plan but that he was looking for a successor.”

  1. Did you father not take Igbos into war? Was that legal? Why do some people talk with hypocrisy?

  2. When federal government give them shutup money they will saying rubbish, have anyday call or visit kanu for advicing him on what ur father said, u father knows u are less important or maybe u are a caward that's why he did not see successor in u, in as much as I don't support Biafra nation, u the elders in Igbo land are disgrace to the younger ones

    1. This Kanu of a thing is got most things wrong. You cannot declare succession in isolation. Trampling on the collective rights of the component structures had no meaning to him. One would ask if he had really consulted or read the book of history and how the war became preeminent in the political class of history. Nnamdi Kanu gives no respect for the constituted authority and as such his acts is capable of treason. How many states want to be identical with Biafra when Crossriver, Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Edo, Delta and Bayelsa states distance self from Biafra? I will advice that the best Unity is to remain indivisible while we clamour for resource control 'restructuring' rather than risking the future of Nigerians. I must inform you that Kanu can't overpowered the FG.
