By Steve Oko
The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari , for promising to consider the demand for the release of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
Buhari made the promise Friday, when a top Igbo delegation led by First Republican Parliamentarian and ex-Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazuluike Amaechi visited him at the Aso Rock, Abuja.
Ohanaeze in a statement Saturday by its National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, said the apex Igbo body was particularly delighted that the President has shown empathy in the current Igbo travails by mulling a political option for the release of Kanu.
The statement read, “The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Ambassador Professor George Obiozor has always maintained that the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu requires a political solution and that dialogue remains a veritable instrument for a functional democracy all over the world.
“What the Igbos want in Nigeria are very specific and a concerted effort towards addressing such needs will go a long way to resolving the present crises in the South East.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide identifies with the views expressed by Chief Amechi that Ndigbo are committed to a united prosperous Nigeria that guarantees justice, equity and fairness to all.
“We are convinced that as the leader of the nation, Mr. President has the constitutional powers to redirect the narratives of the country; there is hardly the possibility for an economic growth and employment to our teeming graduates in an atmosphere of rancour, insecurity and violence.”Steve Oko, Publisher/C.E.O, WaWa News Global.
