The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has again sounded a warning note to all South East governors.
Kalu warns that any Governor who owes workers in their states should forget about traveling out of the country or else they would be disgraced by members of his secessionist group just as they disgraced former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
Kanu said this in a recent interview on Ben TV, United Kingdom. According to him, the governors who have refused to pay their workers’ salaries, but travelling aimlessly across the world would be stopped from doing so.
“So this is just the beginning. “We’ll not attack them. We’ll just ask them questions. It is called picketing. It’s allowed within the ambit of democratic rules. So, if we see you, we’ll ask you what you’ve been doing with teachers’ salaries, nurses’ salaries and why you’ve not been paying people and what are you doing here? Any governor owing workers once we catch you abroad you’ll tell us what you’ve been doing with the salaries you’re supposed to pay. “
He continued: “There’s no time on this earth that any process of agitation will be palatable for everyone or easy for everyone to buy into. When Nnamdi Azikiwe was campaigning for Nigeria to be free from colonial rule, he was sent to prison. Many people felt he was radical and declined to associate themselves with him. But in the end, he succeeded in freeing Nigeria not knowing that we are jumping from the frying pan to fire…”
