National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, Olusegun Bamgbose, has revealed there is an ongoing plan to free Secessionist leaders, Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian government.

 

Bamgbose said that the plan to release the two campaigners is majorly because of the 2023 general elections.

“There are strong underground moves both within and outside the country to discontinue the charges against them,” Bamgbose told DAILY POST on Monday.

“Unknown to many Nigerians, some very close allies of President Buhari have strongly advised him to handle their cases wisely because of the 2023 General elections,”

“It’s obvious from the body language of the President that he will yield to their advice. Another aspect of it is that some Southern Governors are equally secretly negotiating soft ground for the embattled agitators,” he added.

“They are not making it public for obvious reasons. There is also the pressure from International Comunity to release them soon. In order words, both agitators may soon regain their freedom, hopefully before the end of the year.

“Some top politicians think that considering that 2022 will be the kickstart of the electioneering campaign for the 2023 general elections, it will be ideal to release them this year.

“There are plans to release Igboho to continue his journey to Germany and later release Nnamdi Kanu to southeast Governors and Ohaneze, but on condition that he will stay back in Nigeria.

“The plans are good but the primary thing President Buhari should do is to ensure fairness to all zones in the country. He is not to be seen as representing the interest of a clan or region.

“He was not elected by a particular section of Nigeria. There must be nothing like marginalization in any form. The votes of his clan or region could not have made him the President of Nigeria.

“In the 2011 Presidential elections, he got 12 million votes, the majority of which came from the North, but he lost to Jonathan. He won in 2015 because the South supported him. In order words, he should be more nationalistic in his approach to national issues,”
