Biafra will be a thing of the past if I’ll be given the chance to speak with Kanu – Orji Uzo Kalu
Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzo Kalu has said that the division of Nigeria will come to an end if given the chance to speak with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
This is according to a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, September 8, where the former governor was reacting to the recent outburst against the security forces for the killings of 21 members of IPOB in Enugu.
He said: “I am an ardent believer in unified Nigeria. Nigerians are so entangled with each other that we can’t talk about separation. We are a united country and our focus should be on taking advantage of our population to build a stronger economy.
“We have reached a point where all Nigerians should be canvassing for strong institutions where rule of law and order are observed. Where the hardware and software components of a democratic nation are comprehensively promoted.
“If the federal government permits me, I will go to the United Kingdom and negotiate with Nnamdi Kanu to return to Nigeria. I will convince him to drop the agitation for Biafra because our people don’t need it.
“We need a united Nigeria that will allow different cultures and tongues to live peacefully in any part of the country. A country where people can comfortably do their businesses without fear of the unknown.”
