Sit-at-Home Won’t Lead to Nnamdi Kanu’s Release – Deputy Speaker Kalu

The deputy speaker said this during an interactive session with newsmen in his Bende country home.

 
The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Benjamin Kalu has called for the end of sit-at-home in the Southeast.
 
According to him, sit-at-home wouldn’t lead to the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
 
Kalu said the Southeast was shooting itself in the foot by threatening to burn down the region if the Federal Government refused to release Kanu.
 
The deputy speaker said this during an interactive session with newsmen in his Bende country home.
 
He said that although the leadership of the South-East had made several efforts for Kanu’s release, the efforts of some amounted to playing to the gallery.
 
“To get Kanu released is not about how much you talk about it in the pages of the newspapers or television; it needs strategic thinking and strategic steps to get it done.

“Many thought that by arm-twisting the Federal Government through sit-at-home every Monday, through violence and destruction, the Federal Government would immediately release Kanu.

“You can never arm-twist the Federal Government, but you can dialogue. The houses you are shooting are in the South-East. When you say, ‘If you don’t release Kanu, the people will sit at home and not go to work,’ people are going to work in Lagos, Kano, Sokoto, and other parts of the country.

“So, who are you shooting? It’s like a man shooting his leg and taking accolades for it, and this is the greatest level of folly,” he said.
