President Buhari Tells Igbo Leaders That Their Demand For IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu's Is Heavy But He Will Consider It...

An unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), currently standing trial, runs contrary to the doctrine of separation of powers between the Executive and Judiciary, President Muhammadu Buhari has said.

Receiving a group under the aegis of Highly Respected Igbo Greats, led by First Republic parliamentarian and Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi, at State House, Abuja, the President told the 93-year-old statesman:

“You’ve made an extremely difficult demand on me as leader of this country. The implication of your request is very serious. In the last six years, since I became President, nobody would say I have confronted or interfered in the work of the Judiciary. God has spared you, and given you a clear head at this age, with very sharp memory. A lot of people half your age are confused already. But the demand you made is heavy. I will consider it.”

Stressing his policy of non-interference with the Judiciary, President Buhari said when Kanu jumped bail, got arrested and brought back to the country, “I said the best thing was to subject him to the system. Let him make his case in court, instead of giving very negative impressions of the country from outside. I feel it’s even a favour to give him that opportunity.”

The President condoled with Chief Amaechi, who recently buried his wife, praying that her soul would rest in peace.
The nonagenarian had described the situation in the Southeast as “painful and pathetic,” lamenting that businesses have collapsed, education is crumbling, and there is fear everywhere.

He pleaded for a political, rather than military solution, requesting that if Kanu was released to him as the only First Republic Minister still alive, “he would no longer say the things he had been saying,” stressing that he could control him, “not because I have anything to do with them (IPOB), but I am highly respected in Igbo land today.”

Chief Amaechi said twice he had interfaced with Nnamdi Kanu in the past, and the latter rescinded orders earlier given on civil disobedience.
He concluded: “I don’t want to leave this planet without peace returning to my country. I believe in one big, united Nigeria, a force in Africa. Mr President, I want you to be remembered as a person who saw Nigeria burning, and you quenched the fire.”

Other people in the visiting delegation were; His Excellency Chukwuemeka Ezeife, former Governor of Anambra State, Bishop Sunday Onuoha of the Methodist Church, Chief Barrister Goddy Uwazurike, former President of Igbo socio-cultural group, Aka Ikenga, and Mr Tagbo Mbazulike Amaechi.

      This is what elder statesmen need to be doing

  2. Buhari is very kind and lenient sha. People he should have chased from his office. This is to confirm that Igbo leaders, clerics, and elders have always been in support of Nnamdi Kanu's terrorism.

    This is similar to Northern Elders visiting Buhari to stop the Nigerian military's onslaught against Shekau at the height of the BokoHaram war

    What a shame


    1. Abeg shift make human post something meaningful.always posting nonsense to be noticed.well na first and last I go put mouth for your insensitive post..amu oke

    2. U this eesha, it's obvious ur brain in paining you.

    3. But he didn't chase them away....ntorrrrr

      Go and hug live transformer...swine.

  3. Hmm! Nigeria has been turned to trash can. IPOB loyalists were were attacking their people, killing security personnels while Kanu was in UK with his family enjoying himself and he was advocating violence. We know the Nigerian system has been unjust. Why can't he be like Mahatma Gandi and Nelson Mandela. Anyway let's not get angry if Boko Haram and repentant terrorists are given pension and flyed in a private jet.

  4. I hope Igbo elders are not digging a hole for themselves unknowingly. What will follow this kind of meeting is Gumi and other people who think like him going to Aso Rock to seek something similar for people who have not yet been declared terrorists across Nigeria and asking to absolve them into a military that seems to have seriously compromised.

    I hope professional chess players are not the ones pushing these elders to rubbish themselves.
