Again, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu took to the airwaves on Thursday to address the world in the midst of the global crisis, COVID19 that continues to threaten world stability.
Highlighting the poor showing of the Nigerian government in the handling of the pandemic and the awareness surrounding the disease during his usual Radio Biafra live broadcast, the humane leader of the predominantly Igbo tribe in the SouthEastern part of Nigeria encouraged all to take seriously the issue of personal hygiene and social distancing to ensure the spread of the disease is reduced to the barest minimum.
Kanu pledged N50 Million Naira in support of the fight against the Coronavirus to hospitals designated by the IPOB leadership in each of the states that make up the Biafran nation, he went further to include Edo state, the closest neighbour and home to many Biafrans.
He also promised to commence a food program to carter for the needy in these hard times.
The leader also encouraged all to pray to the Almighty God for a miracle while pointing out that prayers alone won’t cut it but must be backed by responsible actions.
There’s been reports of 1 death and 44 confirmed cases of the disease in Nigeria.
