Just In! Nnamdi Kanu Releases Powerful Statement On His Alleged Presidential Ambition


The  Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has said that he would not contest for President, when the Republic of Biafra is fully actualized.

Kanu, in an exclusive chat with Vanguard, insisted that the Biafra nation would be founded on the principle of justice, equity, and fairness.

He added that, he was glad that some Igbo Leaders were already identifying with the struggle, and encouraged them to remain steadfast.

“I am into this struggle, because of leadership vacuum. I am into this struggle, because my people are suffering; they are being denied their rights and privileges, and nothing will stop this fight. I want to assure our people that we are almost there.

“The Biafra Republic is almost here with us. Even if one is from Sokoto, he can be a Biafran, once he believes in our value system of equity, justice, and fairness.

“Biafra will be a home for all people who agree with our values, whether you are from Kano or Sokoto’,’ he said.

Adding: “It will be a place for good things for good people. Therefore, those who are distancing themselves from the Biafra struggle, will regret it. If you don’t join the struggle, you will be irrelevant in the end, because Biafra Republic is sure.”

Kanu described Afaraukwu-Umuahia, where his father is the Traditional Ruler, as being part of the headquarters of Biafra, where the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, had the popular Ojukwu bunker and operated from, till the end of the Biafra war.
