The youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to order the release of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu as a new year gift to Ndigbo.
Ohanaeze Youth Council Worldwide made the appeal in a statement by Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, its President-General.
Nnabuike noted that “as a father, the President should not be pandering to the advice of a few people which is not in the best interest of the country.
“We are all witnesses to the unrest that has been ravaging the South-East zone since Nnamdi Kanu’s re-arrest and detention. The detention has only worsened matters and this is why we are making a passionate appeal to Mr. President to release him unconditionally.

“Recall that the use of force never worked in the Niger-Delta region until the late President Yar’adua brought in amnesty and peace was restored. Mr. President must take a cue from that and discountenance those urging him not to free Kanu.
“The highest new year gift he should give to Ndigbo is to accept the political solution to Kanu’s case,” Okwu stated.
