Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra state has called on the Federal Governnment of President Muhammadu Buhari to kindly release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in line with court judgement to that effect, in order to ensure lasting peace and unity in the South East.

Federal Government is yet to comply with the Court of Appeal judgement that ordered it to release the detained leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu since July 9, 2021 after the appallate court had quashed the entire terrorism charges against him.

But speaking during the National Campaign Launch of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Awka today, Governor Soludo who is the National Leader of APGA, offered himself as surety for the immediate and unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu and promised to produce him to authorities whenever he is needed in court.

He called on all the major stakeholders in security agencies in Nigeria to initiate a conversation towards discussing the security challenges in the zone with the IPOB leader being present.

“I am making a passionate appeal to the Federal Government to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally. If he cannot be released unconditionally, i want him released to me and i will stand surety for him”.

He went further, “We need Nnamdi Kanu in the roundtable conversation to discuss the insecurity in the South East. We must end insecurity in the South East and we need Nnamdi Kanu to be around.”

The APGA Presidential Candidate, Prof Peter Umeadi said since he became the party’s candidate in June last year, he has traversed the length and breadth of Nigeria canvassing for votes.

Justice Umeadi assured Nigerians that he has a realistic manifesto that will address true federalism, agricultural revolution, education, sports and culture, healthcare delivery, knowledge-economy, human security, transport and communication, women, youth, children and disabled, environmental impact assessment and census in Nigeria.

The APGA candidate for Anambra Central Senatorial District, Hon Dozie Nwankwo who spoke on behalf of other National Assembly candidates, thanked Nigerians for having confidence in APGA, asking Nigerians to get their Permanent Voter Cards handy so that they could vote for all APGA candidates across board in the forthcoming general elections.
