The Executive Governor of Enugu State, Peter Mbah, recently met with President Tinubu in the statehouse. During the meeting, he made an appeal for the release of the self-acclaimed leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
While speaking with state house correspondents after his private meeting with President Tinubu, the Governor stated that among the issues discussed was the release of Nnamdi Kanu who has gotten a series of favourable court judgement over his prosecution. Mbah said Kanu’s release will engender a national healing process, already started by the President.
The governor added that he hopes President Tinubu gives favourable consideration to the request.
He said: “We also had that conversation with Mr President. We have made a very strong announcement. We’ve banned sit-at-home on Mondays in Enugu. And obviously, what that means is that we will, of course, need to, you know, heighten our security, tackle the challenges that would flow from that, and, you know, essentially that’s what I have come to do.
“And finally, we also, of course, talked about the release of Nnamdi Kanu. You know, that the South East has made a collective demand to have Nnamdi Kanu released. And we basically identified with that and request Mr President, who in his inaugural address promised the people that he’s going to engender national healing and he’s going to serve with compassion.
“So, we’ve basically informed him that this would serve as a pointer to his administration’s extension of hands of fellowship.”
