Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has said that he is not against any genuine restructuring of Nigeria which is line of the 1963 Constitution.

According to the separatist leader, unless those opposed to the comprehensive restructuring of Nigeria changed, his demand for a referendum to decide whether the people of Biafra would like to exit or continue as part of Nigeria remained sacrosanct.

Kanu’s position was made known to Vanguard by his younger brother, Prince Emmanuel, after meeting with him at the Abuja headquarters of the Department of State Services (DSS).

He quoted Kanu as saying, “We are not averse to the genuine restructuring of the country. We know that the country cannot grow or make progress under the current unworking unitary structure. The facts are clear for all to see.

“Our position remains the same as our submission in the presence of Prof. Ben Nwabueze, and Evangelist Elliot Ugochukwu-Uko on 30th August 2017 at the meeting with the South East Governors in Enugu. We have no reason to add or subtract from our position six years ago.

“We reiterate that we are not opposed to a consensual but wholesome restructuring of the country along the 1963 constitution.”
