THE governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra, Valentine Ozigbo, says the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, will be released soon.

Ozigbo, who spoke last night in Awka,  during a governorship debate, organised by a local radio station in the state, said a non-violent and diplomatic means of addressing the calls for secession should be adopted.

His words: “Indeed, Nnamdi Kanu should be released while we go back to the root cause for the agitation. I always focus on the root causes of problem-solving. We can’t be addressing a problem from the symptoms. An efficient way to address any crisis is to deal with the root.

“Why the agitations? If you think deeply, you’ll understand that it is because Nigeria is not working. Our leaders have failed us. The sense of hopelessness brought about by poor governance pervades the land.

“There’s a lot we need to do to get Nigeria working again. The poor road networks, decayed infrastructure, failed social systems, a devastating healthcare sector, a shrinking economy, lack of opportunities, and many more manifestations of poor governance leads to the question of ‘Is there any need to be part of Nigeria, anyway?

“As a way out of the current crisis, we need a fresh approach to leadership. Nigeria must focus on raising the competitiveness of the country, among other solutions. We must do away with nepotism and entrench competency. We must restructure Nigeria to be juster, more competitive, and more inclusive.”

Others who appeared at the debate were, Col. Geoffrey Onyejegbu (Rtd) the candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM); Dr Chidozie Nwankwo of the African Action Congress (AAC) and Chief Akachukwu Nwamkpo of African Democratic Congress (ADC).
