“For me, it will be more problematic to say that there won’t be any election in Anambra, it is like somebody firing gun on his toes.
“Christ came into the world and reincarnated the message of peace and that was why I advised Kanu to uphold peace following the tensions everywhere in the country. Let love lead all that we do.
“I advised him to do anything within his power to forestall peace, even in their agitation, let there be prudence. ”
“In our country Nigeria, it is certain that there is marginalisation, nepotism and tribalism.
“We are one Nigeria but some people are being marginalised and that is why we have all these agitations but in everything, let there be prudence as we also pray for divine intervention.
“Igbos are clamouring for Biafra but an average Igbo man is selfish in nature and the question is, how matured are we to handle our affairs.
“Where are the Igbo cabals and stakeholders; like Nnia Nwodo, Peter Obi, Emeka Anyaoku, Ifeanyi Ubah, Prof Charles Soludo, Emmanuel Iwuanwaywu, and many others.
“There has to be a unifying umbrella where they will gather and register their protest,” he said.
