The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to give a better argument in handling calls for secession and restructuring.
He said this at his country home in Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, while reacting to the President’s order against IPOB, and other agitating groups.
He warned that Buhari’s order of force to solve national problems would yield no results, adding that the people must not be “railroaded into succumbing to intimidation.”
Nnamdi Kanu said Buhari should know that there are better ways to handle issues that concern the growth and development of the country instead of resorting to threat or intimidation of the citizenry into believing in his course.
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.
