‘Ndigbo may support Tinubu in 2027 if Nnamdi Kanu is released’ – Ohanaeze

The pan-Igbo socio-cultural  group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has stated that Ndigbo may vote for President Bola Tinubu in 2027 if he frees the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo factional Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said this in a statement issued yesterday.

According to him, the unconditional release of the IPOB leader would completely bury the widely-held view that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, hates the Igbo ethnic-nationality.

The ex-Ohanaeze youth leader admonished the government to initiate a genuine and all-inclusive truce involving the detained IPOB leader and critical stakeholders in order to address the insecurity in the South-East.

He said, “We emphasise that the effects of Nnamdi Kanu’s release will gradually diminish the rising popularity of both Peter Obi and Simon Ekpa in the South-East.

“Additionally, from a security perspective, Simon Ekpa’s disruptive activities and terrorist tendencies in the South East will be consigned to the annals of history”. Isiguzoro urged the President to consider Kanu’s unconditional release.

“We assure that the Igbo ethnic-nationality stands behind him, and we trust that he will handle this matter with utmost care and consideration”, he added.
