Ohanaeze Ndigbo is canvassing a political solution to the prolonged incarceration of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, just as it vowed not to abandon members of the group and those of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) in their struggle.

The organisation is also determined to repatriate Igbo investments for integration and development.

Briefing the press after its maiden national executive committee meeting in Enugu yesterday, the group’s President General, Dr. John Nnia Nwodo, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to free Kanu, insisting that a political solution to the issue was desirable.

His words: “Naturally if your son is incarcerated, you cannot but ask for his release and I am asking for a political solution to Nnamdi Kanu’s issue. If we continue to deal with the legality of the question, the judicial struggle, it will last for too long.

“It may precipitate political consequences which are not good for Nigerian politics and as a father of Kanu and Ndigbo, I am asking the President to seek a political solution and I am prepared to discuss it with him.

‘’This imbroglio must end. We must find a way out. I am asking him to be a father and look at his son and see whether he must use the full weight of his powers to handle this boy the way he is doing and whether he is doing so to other people from other parts of Nigeria who have done perhaps, worse things than him.”

Nwodo said Ohanaeze leadership would soon meet with the agitators to find better ways of executing their mission for the benefit of the ethnic nationality.

    Only a referendum can solve this issue. But Nnia Nwodo may God bless you and yours abundantly. You have continued to dignify and maintain your family’s reputation , unlike other so called Ibo elites that will rather hide from the truth. They will run to Abuja and get crumps after selling their birth right to Hausa/fulani. Please Mazi Nwodo, all we are asking is for a referendum. Let the Ibo speaking areas determine what they want. History will forever be kind to the Nwodos for such a gesture to the Ibos. And the Ibo race will forever remember the Nwodos as they will remember Nnamdi Kanu ‘s family.

    is out of touch of reality, his statements are not statements of a
    representing entity of Igbos under Republic Of Biafra, and any entity
    without decisive stand for Republic Of Biafra now in existence, is not a
    representing entity of Igbos. He want to beg for what he calls
    representation in the mess he called a government that could not handle
    an economy that is now in depression, officially 30 millions unemployed
    youths etc. A mess called government Biafrans associated with for about
    60 years- no industrial capacity, no education capacity, no electricity
    capacity, no transport network capacity, no health capacity- how many
    will I count. Sit on wealth and live in want. He is a shame, a disgrace.
    Igbos future is not in Abuja, it is in eastern region under Republic Of
    Biafra now in existence, and that future is now- either he stand for it
    now or is not a representing figure of Igbos, and if Ohanaeze do not
    decisively and firmly stand for it now, then is not a representing
    entity of Igbos. Today January 20. 2017 is deadline of Diplomacy option of cordial separation of Republic Of Biafra, with UN signature for Republic Of Biafra.
