…Says letter’ll soon get to Attorney General
ANAMBRA State Governor, Chukwuma Charles Soludo says the letter requesting the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will in a matter of days, get to the Attorney General of the Federation, Alhaji Abubakar Malami.
The governor had during the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Campaign Flag-off at Dr. Alex Ekwueme Square in Awka, on Saturday, placed a demand for the unconditional release of Kanu as directed by the courts or that he should be released to him to act as his surety.
According to a release by his press secretary, Christain Abarime, fielding questions from the interviewer, on Channels Television’s flagship programme, “Politics Today” anchored by Seun Okinbaloye, Governor Soludo insisted that for the peace and security of the South East, there is need for stakeholders to rally round the table to discuss, to which Nnamdi Kanu is a critical component.
He appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari for his efforts on security in the South East, especially his kinetic approach, adding that it is now time for some home truth to be told, which is that the non-kinetic approach to solving the problem of insecurity in the region, should be explored.
He called on stakeholders in the region to rise up to the occasion, and dismissed insinuations from some quarters that the demand he made is a political statement, expressing genuine concern about the present condition of the region for a sustainable future is not attainable without sustainable security.
The governor further stressed that APGA is the third largest political party; a home and future of true progressives in the country and maintained that in the forthcoming election in February and March, the party will be competing across board, to win.
He recalled that the late Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu was the first National Leader of APGA, after which former Governor Willie Obiano took over and he eventually stepped in as the third, stressing that Governor Obiano’s position in the party as the BOT Chairman subsists as was attested to, during the flag-off ceremony, adding that as the party leader, the onus is on him to pilot his party to victory, from top downwards.
On whether he has a Presidential ambition, Governor Soludo wondered why people left the issues addressed in his letter to start making insinuations, stating that only God knows what will happen in future and not man, just as he emphasised that the letter was not written for today but for history.
According to him, having been elected Governor of Anambra State, he has come to serve the people.
Recalling how he started from a global level, down to the federal and state levels, Soludo assured that his major focus is on delivering his administration’s five pillars of development, which he is gradually addressing.
