Nnamdi Kanu, leader of IPOB is set to be honoured by Eastern Consultative Assembly
– The role Kanu played in the recent agitation for restructuring in Nigeria is said to have warranted the honour
– A book title How Nnamdi Kanu restructured Nigeria will be presented during the ceremony
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, will be honoured by the Eastern Consultative Assembly (ECA) in October.
Kanu will be honoured during the presentation of a book entitled “How Nnamdi Kanu Restructured Nigeria”, the Nation reports.
Mrs Maria Okwor, deputy leader of ECA said: “The book produced by the ECA, documents the travails, the journey and frustrations in the spirited attempt by good men and women to save Nigeria from collapse, through a holistic restructuring of the polity back to true federalism and regional autonomy.
“The book reveals how Nigeria is crippled by an over-powerful center, prebendalism, unitary structure, ethnic divisions, corruption and ill-fitting military constitution.”
Mrs Okwor noted: “The book also recalls the struggles by Late Anthony Enahoro, Late Abraham Adesanya, Late Rotimi Williams, Late Tunji Braithwaite etc. to reconstruct and redesign Nigeria through a wholesome restructuring of the polity that will throw up a new people’s constitution that would be affirmed at a referendum.
“The book exposes the reasons why enemies of progress have consistently killed reports of past national conferences, just so they could continue to hold Nigerians hostage and deny the people opportunity to take back their country from the vicious cabal that believes they are born to rule and dominate others forever.
“Kanu is being honoured for achieving under two years the restructuring of Nigeria, something that seemed impossible just two years ago.
“As every group and government has set up their own committee on restructuring, going round organizing public hearings/sittings, the unborn generations of Nigeria will forever remain grateful to Nnamdi Kanu for moving the restructuring agenda from the realm of speculation into reality, something he achieved at great sacrifice.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, had challenged the court decision to proscribe his group.
Kanu, in a motion on notice filed against an order made by the Federal High Court on Wednesday, September 20, said the order proscribing IPOB as a terrorist organization is illegal.
