I Don’t Understand How Buhari govt Brought Back Nnamdi Kanu To Nigeria – Edwin Clark
Former Federal Commissioner for Information, Senator Edwin Clark has condemned the uncouth manner the federal government arrested the leader of the Independent People Of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
According to Senator Edwin Clark, he cannot fathom how the federal government was able to whisk Nnamdi Kanu to the country after he had stayed away from Nigeria for a long time. Clark urged the federal government to grant Kanu a fair trial in court.
He said: “I hope the Federal Government will give him a fair, decent and open trial. Because, up till today, I do not understand how the Federal Government got him back into Nigeria,” the elder statesman told BBC Pidgin.
“We remember the days of Umaru Dikko who was put in a big box and brought back to Nigeria. I don’t know how this young man (Kanu) was brought back to Nigeria.”
Clark lamented about the marginalization of the Igbos as he intimated that the South East has five states, as other zones in the country have six and seven respectively,
He added: “Based on what? Nobody knows.”
“For every appointment that is being made in this country, the Igbo are shortchanged. If Universities are being distributed per state, they will have five. Others will have six while North-West will have seven. This is despite the Igbo forming the third leg when this country was created.
“So, they have a good complaint, but going about it wrongly. How can Delta be part of Biafra? In what way? Is Biafra older or bigger than Delta?
“How can Rivers State or Akwa Ibom become part of Biafra? They are dreaming for still thinking about the Eastern Region of those days.”
