Nnamdi Kanu: South-east leaders welcome political solution to ending region’s crisis

Published

The Council of Traditional Rulers and the representatives of Igbo Archbishops and Bishops in the South-East have welcome the suggestions by the Attorney-General for the Federation and Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami to exploring political solutions in ending the insecurity and socioeconomic challenges in the country.

The Body stated its position in a statement issued on Saturday and made available to newsmen.  

The statement was signed by the Obi of Onitsha, His Majesty, Igwe Nnaemeka A. Achebe; the Catholic Archbishop of Owerri, Most Rev. Anthony Obinna and the Methodist Archbishop of Umuahia, Rev (Dr) Chibuzo Raphael Opoko.

Malami had when asked if the Federal Government was not disposed to a political solution to the separatist agitations of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu; and Yoruba nationalist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Igboho, said although such consideration was not yet on the table, the government would not mind taking a shot at it.

He had said, “As far as the security situation is concerned and as far as governance and this administration is concerned, you cannot rule out all possibilities. But then, there has to be an approach for government to consider.

“We will look into it (approach) for the purpose of looking at its weight, the authenticity of it, the good faith associated with it and then bring about the considerable factors relating to the negotiations or otherwise.”

Reacting to the development, the Body said the statement is in line with the proposal which it earlier made on the issue.

It said, “The Joint Body acknowledges the statement by the Attorney-General & Minister of Justice Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), in which he affirmed that the Federal Government was open to a political solution to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case.
