Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, a former governor of Anambra State, has declared that in exchange for President Muhammadu Buhari releasing IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu from prison, he is prepared to kneel or prostrate before the president.
On Monday, Ezeife revealed this while answering questions on the Arise TV Morning Show programme.
His reaction follows the Appeal Court’s decision to release Kanu last week, as well as the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami’s decision to appeal the decision.
“If President Buhari wants me to kneel, I will kneel. If he wants me to prostrate, I’ll prostrate just for Nnamdi Kanu to be released. Going to the Supreme Court is a waste of time. Everyone in Nigeria is looking for a new Nigeria,” Ezeife said.
The former governor also said that the release of Kanu would address protests, agitation, and sitting-at-home in the South-East region, adding that the Igbo elders would welcome negotiation from the Presidency to ensure Kanu’s release and peace in the South-East.
