By Mmaduabuchi Onwumelu
The Vice President of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief Okeke Ogene, has called on Southeast governors to support the efforts of Governor Chukwuma Soludo to restore stability in the zone.
Speaking in Awka, Chief Okeke Ogene noted that the collective efforts of the Governors would help tackle the challenges confronting the zone.
Chief Ogene commended Governor Soludo on his strong political will in calling for the unconditional release of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mr Nnamdi Kanu, and volunteering to stand as his surety.
He said this had further demonstrated his commitment in championing the cause of Ndigbo and protecting the interests of the people, not only in Anambra State, but the entire South East Zone.
He said the call should be supported and reechoed by other stakeholders in Igbo Land and reflected the stand of the late Mbazulike Amechi and the late Ohaneze President, Professor George Obiozor, stressing that Federal Government had no legal or moral grounds to still hold the IPOB leader in captivity since a court of competent jurisdiction had ordered his release.
Chief Ogene urged stakeholders in other zones and regions to raise their voices in the present struggle to protect and promote the rule of law and expressed confidence that the release of Nnamdi Kanu would end the unrest and incessant waste of lives in the Southeast.
