Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has described the leader of the Indigenous People People of Biafra, IPOB, as a tripartite of ex-warlord, Odumegu Ojukwu, ex-President, Nnamdi Azikiwe and coup plotter, Kaduna Nzeogwu.
FFK disclosed this while commending the IPOB leader for the continued struggle towards the actualization of Biafra.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chieftain also commended Kanu for remaining focused despite the “disinformation and rubbish that his many detractors are saying and writing about him.”
In his latest news article, Fani-Kayode said, “The truth is that I have a soft spot for him and no matter what he says or does I will always love him like a brother because he has managed to do, in a very short space of time, what most cannot do in a lifetime: he has won my respect and rekindled my hope in Africa and African leaders.
“I believe that he is a courageous, strong and dynamic young man and indeed the greatest thing that has happened to the Igbos in the last 103 years.
“As I alluded to in an earlier essay which I wrote after meeting him for the first time in Kuje prison in 2016, he is an Ojukwu, an Nzeogwu and an Azikiwe all rolled into one.
“Despite the contrived and sponsored disinformation and rubbish that his many detractors are saying and writing about him, today he remains focused on his objectives and clear about his mission: nothing appears to move him and or distract him from his calling.
“He has a date with history and destiny and no matter what his enemies do to him or say about him he shall keep that date.
“Most important of all is the fact that I understand what drives him and kindles his extreme passion for the cause that he serves.
“I understand his burning yet clearly repressed anger at the shoddy and inexcusable plight of his Igbo people in the contraption called Nigeria.
“I can feel his pain and when you sit with him for a long period of time, to the discerning and the sensitive in the spirit, that pain is not only contagious but also literally tangible.
“Rarely have I met a man that has so much genuine love and concern for his people. My admiration and respect for him remains intact and it cannot easily be diminished.
“And frankly if I had been born an Igbo person, given the history and what they have been through in the hands of Nigeria over the last 57 years, I would have been far more radical and uncompromising than even he is.
“The truth is that Nigeria should count herself lucky that he is a pacifist who has not called for and neither is he interested in an armed struggle.”
