Isaac Fayose:”If I Were Tinubu, When I Noticed S’East Didn’t Vote For Me, I Would Have Released Kanu”

Isaac Fayose:"If I Were Tinubu, When I Noticed S'East Didn't Vote For Me, I Would Have Released Kanu"The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has been urged to be released by President Bola Tinubu by his younger brother, Isaac Fayose, the brother of former Ekiti State governor Ayodele Fayose. As per the Daily Post report on Tuesday, Fayose predicted that the release of Kanu will not only result in a 50% decrease in insecurity in the Southeast but also increase the number of votes cast for Tinubu in the 2027 election.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>

Speaking further, Fayose made comparisons with the approach of former President Goodluck Jonathan, who gave contracts to Niger Delta militant leader Tompolo to achieve peace in the region.

He questioned why a similar approach couldn’t be adopted in the Southeast, suggesting that releasing Kanu would lead to a huge reduction in security spending in the region.

He said, “Releasing Nnamdi Kanu will release crime in the South-East by 50%. And APC will get more votes in 2027.

“If President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan can give a contract to Tompolo to have peace in the Niger Delta, why can’t we do the same in the South-East?

“If we are spending so much on insecurity in the South-East, the money will be reduced by 50% releasing Kanu.”

Speaking further, he said, “If I were President Tinubu, after the election, when I noticed that the South-East people didn’t vote for me, I would have released Kanu to counter them. Releasing Kanu can make some of them say, ‘Oh this man has a good intention.'”

Fayose’s call came following appeals from the 2023 Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and other Nigerians for Tinubu to release Kanu.

A few days ago, Peter Obi had said that he doesn’t see any reason why Nnamdi Kanu should continue to be held in detention after the court had granted him bail.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
