Dr. Alex Ekwueme, a former Vice President, while giving his remarks, on Wednesday, when Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), visited him at his Enugu residence, said that Kanu and IPOB were aimed at ensuring justice for the igbo’s in Nigeria.
Ekwueme expressed happiness to receive Kanu at his home and promised to advise him on how to continue with his agitation for restoration of Biafra.
“For me, it is a pleasure receiving Nnamdi Kanu in my humble abode here today after all his travails in the last few months. I thank God that he is free and able to move around and for me to be able to see him here in this house.
“It is a pleasure for me to receive him. I will make my best counsel available in his task of leading an agitation that is committed to maintenance of justice and equity among all peoples, especially our people.”
Kanu said that he visited Ekwueme to seek his wise advice and he has learnt a lot from the former VP, what he never read in history book.
“I am humbled and delighted to be here before you and also to bring you up-to-date on what we have been doing; what motivates me to do what I do and what motivates IPOB today to do what we have been doing.
“It’s to give an expression to the yearnings and aspirations for a better society. That’s what we are trying to do, because the sum total of all the activities of IPOB is to ensure that there is dignity of life and for us to fulfill that simple mission, we must be very diligent, we must be focused, sincere and we must also be very honest.
“So, I’ve come here today to meet my father and to explain why we do what we do and also to get his blessings on going forward. Anything you tell me to do is what we are going to do as far as it advances our collective cause as a people and pushes us to the pinnacle of success on what we want to do.”
