Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu, agitators cannot scare Nigerian government – Ex Minister

Former Minister of State of Transport and a​ Peoples Democratic Party, PDP​, gubernatorial aspirant ​in Anambara, John Okechukwu Emeka, ​has stated that no group has the capacity to make the Nigerian government jittery.

He ​said this while reacting to the threat by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)​ and its leader, ​Nnamdi Kanu​,​ that the ​November ​election will not hold if Biafra is not granted an independent status.

​Emeka noted that ​Kanu and Biafra supporters cannot hold government to ransom.

He advised that threats and ultimatum ​should be dropped, urging the agitators to demand negotiation for a better deal for the South-east.

​His words: ​“I don’t see how a group can stop an election in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”‎

“There are issues but we are addressing those issues. We have to restore our core values by bringing hope to the hopeless,” he said.

On the chances of PDP ​in the November election, Emeka said the decision to zone the governorship to Anambra North will

​ help the party do well.

“The PDP constitution allows for a consensus candidate. And the elders of our party have taken the decision to zone the governorship to Anambra north.

​”​With this, we can provide a formidable front to confront whoever we’ll face in the election”, he said.
