Stop Blowing Hot Air For Recognition – Garba Ali Cautions Nnamdi Kanu_Biafra Leader.
While the unity of Nigeria is still a question from the Southwest to Southeast, and from the North to South, it is wise that a person with the concern of his fellow country men will take cognisance to what they say to let peace reign. This has been the issue of why ( Ipob) leader Nnamdi Kanu has been addressed by Alhaji Yusuf Garba Ali, the former national chairman of the then All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), has cautioned Nnamdi Kanu to stop blowing hot air because of recognition.
Alhaji Ali said it is unbelievable that Kanu is still talking of Biafra even though many leaders from the Southeast said what they need is restructuring and not secession but the leader is someone with a strong belief who would never give up.
According to Ali, the Igbos don’t want to secede from Nigeria for any reason, Vanguard reports. Garba Ali who was point out some clear facts said: “I think even the people in the south east are no longer saying that they want to secede.
And it didn’t end there as “The Arewa youths also reacted based on what they thought was the decision of majority of the people of the south east.
“Kanu is still talking of Biafra but leaders from the region have told him that what they need is restructuring and not secession. The question of secession simply does not arise.” Despite the Boko Haram crisis in the north east, there are still Igbos living there.
“There is no part of this country you go to that you do not find another tribe settling there. How do you want to break up the country?
This is a question with simple logic answer if those who still keep agitating for Biafra should ask themselves.
“I do not believe that Nigeria is going to break. What we have is people blowing hot air. Some are using it for their economic interest. They want recognition. There are lots of people blowing hot air just because they want to be recognized.”
Based on source, large numbers of pro-Biafra supporters trooped-out to welcome leader the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, in the Imo state capital, Owerri. According to a post on Facebook by Somto Okonkwo, the supporters who were reportedly in their millions, came out to welcome the IPOB leader during his visit to Owerri on Friday, July 28.
