A former Senate President, Ken Nnamani has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to release the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
Chairman of the Presidential Committee on Electoral Reforms and a former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, has said the Federal Government should have released the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu a long time ago as his further detention will only make him more pupular.
He disclosed this during an interview Punch’s Mudiaga Affe.
What necessitated the ongoing electoral reforms process?
You will recall that in the inaugural speech of President Muhammadu Buhari, he mentioned that he would take a close look at our electoral system. He had been through the presidential electoral process more than three times and he won in the fourth one.
So, he had probably noticed a number of things that went wrong. Each time, cases ended at the Supreme Court. Of course, during the process, a lot of money would have been spent. People had voted using the ballot box but in the end, only about three or four persons would sit at the tribunal to give a ruling that would declare an individual as the winner, thereby making the popular votes cast to be of little or no use.
