Nigeria’s former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has argued that all Southeast politicians and Igbo leaders together can not be compared to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The former minister, in a tweet on Monday, praised the IPOB leader for his bravery, adding that no man in southeast is as popular as he is.
“There is no man that is as popular in the East today as @MaziNnamdiKanu. All the Igbo Governors, legislators, politicians and traditional rulers put together cannot match him in terms of mass followership and popularity. He has captured the imagination of the Igbo youths.”
Fani-Kayode also narrated what he saw in Nnamdi Kanu when he met him.
He said: “He stands for an ideal and he believes in the total emancipation of the Igbo nation. I have met this man and I have weighed his soul by looking deep into his eyes. Rarely have I seen such passion, strength, commitment, fortitude and courage displayed in the Nigerian political space.”
