The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to look for better ways in handling calls for secession and restructuring of the country.
He spoke in Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia while reacting to the President’s speech on Monday.
He said the use of order of force to resolve national problems would yield no results, saying “ people must not be rail-roaded into succumbing to intimidation”
Kanu said there are better ways issues bordering on the growth and development of Nigeria can be handled rather than resorting to threat or intimidation of the citizenry.
Kanu said: “In this debate for freedom, everybody has to be heard. Buhari should defeat me with the superiority of his argument not AK 47.
“Some people quickly recourse to violence, hate and intimidation because they have lost the force of argument.”
He insisted that the President was wrong to compare IPOB to Boko Haram.
“It is the continuation of Buhari’s dictatorial and unwholesomely undemocratic approach to governance.
“I find it unacceptable and insulting that somebody elected by the people can turn around and dictate to them how he wants them to behave,” Nnamdi Kanu added
