If Buhari Refuses To Free Kanu, I’ll Appeal To Tinubu-Soludo; Wike Supports Abbas, Kalu Leadership In The 10th House Of Representatives

The governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Soludo, says he will shift attention to the incoming government of Bola Tinubu if his appeal for the release of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, is not granted by President Muhammadu Buhari. Continue Reading>>>

Soludo has repeatedly appealed to President Buhari to release Kanu, who has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since his arrest in July 2021, with his latest appeal coming in a letter to the President dated April 20, 2023.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday, Governor Soludo said the call for Kanu’s release is a cause he believes in, adding that his latest letter was also copied to the President-elect. Continue Reading>>>

This is a cause that one believes in. Consistently I am an advocate of the rule of law and justice for all and therefore if you look at that letter, that letter is copied to the President-elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and I want to also believe that a copy has been delivered to his office as it were.

The ambitions of Tajudeen Abbas and Benjamin Kalu to become the next Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the 10th House of Representatives received a major boost on Friday with endorsement from Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.

Speaking while receiving the duo in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, the governor promised his support for only them, being the anointed candidates of their party, the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Wike described Abbas and Kalu as the most qualified aspirants for the positions of Speaker and Deputy Speaker, assuring that he will deliver Rivers votes for them.

According to him, all the 13 members-elect from Rivers State with the exception of one, are with Abbas and Kalu 100 per cent.

The governor promised not to leave any stone unturned to ensure that the 2015 scenario where members-elect went against their party and emerged as leaders of the National Assembly did not repeat itself.

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, and presidential candidate of the Labour Party during last general election, Peter Obi, are in Port Harcourt for a book presentation.

The book titled ‘Witness to reconciliation: my personal journey towards reconciliation in Ogoni land’ and written by the Archbishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Mathew Kukah, is being presented at the Obi Wali International Conference Centre, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
