The Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial district in the 9th National Assembly, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, has urged the Federal government to critically examine the issues surrounding the arrest and detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Senator Ifeanyi Ubah gave the advice during a stakeholders meeting in Lagos as part of his sensitisation and engagements with Ndi Anambra where he visited Alaba International market and was welcomed by the leadership of the market led by the president.
According to a statement signed & released by the Director, Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah Campaign Organisation, Hon.
Kamen Chuks Ogbonna, the team had robust discussions and exchange of ideas on the various issues surrounding the South East development.
The market executives who described the Distingushed Senator as one of their own thanked him for donating a brand new Hilux to the market some years back and expressed their total support for his aspiration while assuring him that the dominant feeling amongst business men plying their trades in Lagos is that they will all relocate back to the State next month and play their roles in ensuring that the vision for a new commercial Anambra is achieved.
In the course of the conversation, some youth leaders used the opportunity of the visit to express their sadness to the Senator over the raging issue of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s detention and pleaded with him to intervene on the matter.
The Senator in his response assured them that there are ongoing efforts behind the scene at finding a political solution to the problem and also promised to relay their message to the federal government with regards to the need to treat the issue as vital especially since some opposition party players have cashed in on that, to create artificial insecurity in Anambra State and trigger voter apathy in the process as a cover for writing results illegally….
The youths later peacefully escorted the Senator (who they kept referring to him as the (king of boys “and the “street general “) and his team on their way out of the market with songs of freedom for Mazi Kanu as the euphoria over their just concluded meeting and the assurances received subsists.
“It is our firm belief that this burning issue should not in any way be politicised but rather it be given the due attention that it requires,” Senator Ubah assured.
“Injustice to one amounts to injustice to all and as the Senator has said on several fora, there is need for the federal government to address the issues surrounding the arrest of Kanu especially in the face of reports that he was carrying the passport of another country at the point of arrest during his visit to another foreign country.
“We strongly believe that if the Federal government finds a political solution to the Nnamdi Kanu issue, the present insecurity in Anambra State will come to an abrupt end as the politically sponsored bandits killing people under this guise will have no further excuse at their disposal.
The Lagos town hall meetings were rounded up with a dinner party hosted for the Senator by some stakeholders and members of the Anambra business Community including some market leaders, executives of some social clubs and some members of the Anambra progressives and development Union.
