You cannot stop elections in Igbo land – Orji Kalu blasts Nnamdi Kanu

A former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu has berated the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu for asking Igbos to boycott elections in the South-East until referendum is conducted.

Speaking in Abia State, the former governor and Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, said it was unconstitutional for Kanu to demand that elections be boycotted in the South East.

 Noting that Kanu reserved the right to agitate for Biafra, Kalu insisted that the IPOB leader had no right to stop people of the region from choosing their leaders.

He said: “It will not be fair for IPOB to say that, it is unconstitutional. They have the right to agitate for Biafra, but have no right of disrupting people’s process of registration or electing their leaders.

“IPOB people have every right to agitate, after all, we have free speech in the country, everybody has right to agitate for what he feels is right for him, but that should follow due process.

 “You know, I went to prison to see Nnamdi Kanu when he was there and I spoke with him. I also almost at the same time visited his parents at their Afara Ukwu, Umuahia country home and I also spoke with them.

“That does not mean I’m in support of what he is doing as some people many tend to believe. At the same time, I’m not against his agitation, he has that right, but like I said earlier, it must follow due process.

“I wish they will understand where the world is going; none of the world powers supports the division of Nigeria.

 “What I think we should do as a people is to come forcefully and demand for our rights, right of being president of this country, right of having equality, right of social justice and right of being treated with the same law; these are what we should be asking for.”
