Presidency Reveals Why FG Ignored Nnamdi Kanu for 'Peace Talk' Meeting with Osinbajo in Aso Rock

The presidency has said it does not consider Nnamdi Kanu, arrowhead of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), as a leader of thought in the south-east region.
Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Sunday stated that the Presidency ignored inviting the leader of the indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu because the Presidency did not consider Kanu as a leader of thought in the south east.Nnamdi Kanu

But he said that Kanu’s non invitation did not mean that he would not be invited if there was the need for the Federal Government to invite him for discussion should the need arise in the future.

According to him, “Well, the thing is that we were looking for leaders of the people, leaders of thought and we do not see him as a leader of thought in the east. May be opportunity will come at one time or the other for him to be engaged.

“But so far, what we have done is to look at people who have influence in the communities, whether it is religious, whether it is traditional, whether it is political, social or governance. These are the people we brought in for discussion.”

He also said that the south leaders including Ohanaeze Ndigbo coming to see Osinbajo have neither asked for a referendum on Biafra or secession, saying that they have only complained about marginalization in appointments and harassment by police at road blocks.

The Special Adviser assured that their concerns are issues that could easily be addressed. “Nobody has tabled that in all the discussions we have had. Nobody, I can tell you. Ohanaeze came with a prepared document. They never talked about referendum. They never. They never even talked about secession.

“They made complaints about police harassment at road blocks. They made complaints about losing some key positions, not being appointed into security positions and all those kinds of things.

“And these are things that can easily be addressed. Nobody canvassed secession at those meetings, nobody canvassed referendum,” he said.

Ojudu noted that the intention for the meeting between the south east leaders and the acting President was on keeping Nigeria as one living in peace and harmony, addong that the federal government would tackle the perceived injustice in parts of the country through equitable distribution of resources and employment creation.

The presidential aide added: “So, for us, and that was the conclusion that everybody came to in the consultations we have had that we should all agree that we can live together peacefully.

“We should address injustice where we find it and the government should be equitable in the distribution of resources across the country and d then, find solution to youth unemployment and the frustration that is confronting most of the young people across this country.”
