Introduction: The need for unity and collective action is never more critical than when a community faces challenges that threaten its well-being and progress. In recent times, two prominent figures, Peter Obi and Nnamdi Ókwú Kanu, have become symbols of the struggle for justice and representation for the Igbo people.

Their stories reflect the resilience and determination of the Igbo community to overcome adversity and demand their rightful place in the Nigerian polity. This article calls for Ndị Ìgbo (the Igbo people) to come together and support Peter Obi in reclaiming his stolen mandate and push for the release of Nnamdi Ókwú Kanu to foster peace, justice, and progress in the South East zone and Nigeria as a whole.

Peter Obi: A Beacon of Credibility and Transparency

The tale of Peter Obi’s stolen mandate during his tenure as Governor of Anambra State is one that showcases his credibility, honesty, and unwavering commitment to justice. When he was unjustly impeached, his mandate was handed to Chris Ngige, leading to a long-drawn legal battle. Despite facing numerous challenges, Obi persisted, firmly believing that the mandate belonged to him. His resilience and determination in seeking redress demonstrated his honesty and transparency as a leader.

Obi’s unyielding pursuit of justice gained him admiration, even from his opponents. His courage to stand his ground and demand justice from the judiciary and the government is a testament to his character. His actions led to a change in the election date in Anambra State, as he fought relentlessly to reclaim what was rightfully his. Peter Obi’s unwavering commitment to justice is a valuable lesson for all Nigerians, emphasizing the importance of honesty and integrity in leadership.

Nnamdi Ókwú Kanu: A Symbol of Defiance and Advocacy

The story of Nnamdi Ókwú Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), is another tale of an individual who dared to challenge the status quo for the sake of his people. Despite facing opposition and scepticism, Kanu’s advocacy for the rights and recognition of the Igbo people struck a chord with many. His vocal stance and the formation of IPOB brought the issues of marginalization and the cry for self-determination to the forefront of national discourse.

Kanu’s detention and the refusal of bail further highlight the urgency of his cause. Although his voice has been heard, the demand for justice and fair treatment continues. His case represents a broader struggle for justice and equal representation for the Igbo people and underscores the need for collective action and support from the larger Nigerian community.

Uniting for Justice and Peace

The plight of Peter Obi and Nnamdi Ókwú Kanu symbolizes the challenges faced by the entire Igbo community. Their experiences reflect the historical grievances and marginalization that have plagued the South East region for decades. As a people, Ndị Ìgbo must come together to demand justice and recognition for their contributions to Nigeria’s growth and development.

Supporting Peter Obi in reclaiming his mandate and advocating for the release of Nnamdi Ókwú Kanu should not be viewed as merely partisan acts but as a call for justice and fairness. By supporting these causes, the Igbo community sends a strong message to the Nigerian government and the larger society that they will not be silent in the face of injustice.

Moreover, allowing Peter Obi to lead the country would be historic and could provide an opportunity for unity and reconciliation. His leadership style and demonstrated commitment to justice could bridge the gap between the various regions and foster a more inclusive and equitable nation.


The time has come for Ndị Ìgbo to unite and stand together in support of Peter Obi’s mandate and the release of Nnamdi Ókwú Kanu. By doing so, they will not only be advocating for justice but also showing the world the strength of their collective will and the desire for peace and progress. Supporting these causes is not a call for division but a plea for fairness, recognition, and equal representation in the Nigerian society. Together, Ndị Ìgbo can forge a path towards a brighter and more inclusive future for themselves and Nigeria as a whole.
