Written by City Radio on October 20, 2022
The South East Caucus in the Senate on Thursday urged the Federal Government to obey the Appeal Court ruling, which ordered the immediate release of leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
In a statement released in Abuja, The Caucus also advised FG against appealing the ruling at the Supreme Court, but rather asked the presidency to utilise the opportunity presented by the Appeal Court ruling and consider political solution to solve the lingering problem in the interest of the country’s unity and peaceful coexistence of Nigerians.
The Caucus cautioned that resorting to the Supreme Court would ignite varied interpretations, which to all intents is injurious to the unity and corporate existence of the country.
Those who signed statement include: Senator Orji Uzor Kalu (Majority Whip), Senator Chukwuka Utazi (Minority Whip), Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, Senator Uche Ekwunife (Iyom), Senator Stella Oduah, Senator Sam Egwu, and Senator Obinna Ogba, Senator T A Orji (Ochendo).
Others are: Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, Senator Micheal Nnachi, Senator Onyewuchi Ezenwa, Senator Rochas Okorocha, Senator Frank Ibezim, and Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Uba.
