Former Governor of Anambra State, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has said he would be willing to prostrate or kneel before President Muhammadu Buhari for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to regain his freedom.
Ezeife disclosed this while fielding questions on the Arise TV Morning Show program on Monday.
His reaction is coming on the heels of the Appeal Court verdict, which discharged Kanu last week, and the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami’s disposition against the judgment.
“If President Buhari wants me to kneel, I will kneel. If he wants me to prostrate, I’ll prostrate just for Nnamdi Kanu to be released. Going to the Supreme Court is a waste of time. Everyone in Nigeria is looking for a new Nigeria,” Ezeife said.
The former governor also said that the release of Kanu would address protests, agitation, and sitting-at-home in the South-East region, adding that the Igbo elders would welcome negotiation from the Presidency to ensure Kanu’s release and peace in the South-East.
