I Have no Intention to Become President of Biafra – Nnamdi Kanu
The founder of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has he has no ambition to become the president of the Republic of Biafra if it eventually becomes a sovereign country.
Kanu said his style was to operate from the background adding that he would not have created IPOB if the leader of the sister separative group, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Ralph Uwazurike had remained true to the message.
Kanu, who was recently granted bail by a high court after prolonged detention for treasonable felony, said there was no going back on the actualisation of Biafra adding that the country will be founded on the principle of justice, equity and fairness.
He also said he sympathised with political leaders and governors in the South East region who are antagonising the group for the fear of losing their position and relevance in Nigeria. As for those identifying with the struggle, he said they should remain steadfast.
“I am into this struggle because of leadership vacuum. I am into this struggle because my people are suffering; they are being denied their rights and privileges and nothing will stop this fight. I want to assure our people that we are almost there.
“The Biafra Republic is almost here with us. Even if one is from Sokoto, he can be a Biafran once he believes in our value system of equity, justice and fairness.
“Biafra will be a home for all people who agree with our values, whether you are from Kano or Sokoto.It will be a place for good things for good people. Therefore, those who are distancing themselves from the Biafra struggle will regret it. If you don’t join the struggle, you will be irrelevant in the end because Biafra Republic is sure,” He told the Vanguard.
Meanwhile, two of Kanu’s co-accused remain in prison, as the bail extended to him didn’t apply to them.
