There are strong indications that leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, seems to have abandoned his secession agenda.
In a recent letter conveyed by his brother, Prince Emmanuel after a meeting with the IPOB leader at the Department of State Services (DSS) headquarters, Kanu was quoted to have said that he is not opposed to any “genuine restructuring” of Nigeria along the lines of the 1963 Constitution.
Kanu insisted that those opposed to the holistic restructuring of Nigeria should have a change of heart.
Kanu’s letter partly reads:
“We are not averse to the genuine restructuring of the country. We know that the country cannot grow or make progress under the current unworking unitary structure. The facts are clear for all to see.
“Our position remains the same as our submission in the presence of Prof. Ben Nwabueze, and Evangelist Elliot Ugochukwu-Uko on 30th August 2017 at the meeting with the South East Governors in Enugu. We have no reason to add or subtract from our position six years ago.
“We reiterate that we are not opposed to a consensual but wholesome restructuring of the country along the 1963 constitution.
