He made this known in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today. He said “Definitely” when asked if the IPOB leader would be released soon.
“I am of the firm belief that if we can consult – with the consultation we have had, the government will start looking in that direction,” he said Thursday.
“Even though it is something that the government cannot say – based on the issues in court, the government cannot say that they can take a unilateral position. But I believe by the time we join the forces coming into the centre spread, we will make an appeal.”
According to him, the detention of Kanu is the reason insecurity continued to spread in the region.
But Ubah expressed optimism that efforts will be made to combat insecurity in the area.
“We spoke on many issues, not only insecurity. We discussed insecurity; it was one of the focused infrastructures, but most importantly, even looking at the stability of the southeast and my state – our detained brother, Nnamdi Kanu.
“A lot of things are on the table; let us see how, where we will get to,” he said.
The senator, who earlier on Thursday switched from the Young Progressives Party (YPP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC), said the Southeast is raising these issues because it wants “tranquility and stability” to reign there.
“Everybody that wants peace in the South-East should help join or help pray for me and see that my move will bring value to the South-East and bring tranquility and peace so that people will start going back to the southeast,” he added.
“People are no more going: Mondays are being observed as sit-at-home, so many things are involved.”
The Supreme Court will deliver judgment on the appeal that is seeking to compel the Federal Government to release the IPOB leader.…CONTINUE.FULL.READING>>>
