The Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Soludo has advised the president-elect, Senator Bola Tinubu, to make the freedom of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu his priority after he assumes presidential office on May 29, 2023.

The Governor made this revelation in a statement released to newsmen, congratulating Tinubu on his emergence as the president.

He mentioned that the South East region is battling insecurity, and advised that the incoming government should find solutions to the concern of everyone.

The national leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) said the youth of the country should be regarded as the heroes of the general elections.

In a press statement he personally signed, the Governor said: “The 2023 General Elections in Nigeria have come and gone. While we commend INEC for the successful completion of the general elections, it is important to note that we must seriously continue to reform and strengthen our electoral processes and citizens’ political participation as we march towards a more perfect system.

“To me, the true heroes of the last elections are the citizens of Nigeria, especially the youths, whose voices will continue to be critical as we collectively strive to build a new Nigeria. Nigeria is the winner, and I am confident that a better future lies ahead of us.”

“Nigeria needs healing and restructuring, and the fundamental challenges of insecurity and the economy remain humongous. We pledge to collaborate and partner with you and the Federal Government for the development of Anambra state and Nigeria. This is the only country that we call ours and we must make it work.”

He further said, “One critical issue that we must draw your urgent attention to is the issue of systemic insecurity in the South East.

“While our efforts with the security agencies are yielding significant results, we believe that sustainable peace and security will be enhanced through wider non-kinetic engagements with all critical stakeholders.

“In this regard, may I repeat my previous calls and hereby request our President-Elect to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu immediately after swearing-in (that is, if he is not released before then). We need him around the table as an important stakeholder in discussions about healing and sustainable peace in the South East,” he said.
