Enugu governor meets Tinubu on Kanu, economic partnership with FG

Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu State has once more appealed to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to free the imprisoned leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Mr. Mbah said this when he paid a visit to President Tinubu at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.


He told newsmen after the meeting that he raised the issue of the long detention of Nnamdi Kanu with the president.


“We also talked about the release of Nnamdi Kanu. You know that the South-east has made a collective demand to have Nnamdi Kanu released,” Mr Mbah told reporters after the meeting.


“And we basically identified with that and requested (Kanu’s release by) Mr President, who in his inaugural address promised the people that he’s going to engender national healing and he’s going to serve with compassion.


“So, we’ve basically informed him that this (Kanu’s release) would serve as a pointer to his administration’s extension of his hands of fellowship to Ndigbo,” the governor added.


Apart from the appeal for the release of Kanu, Mr. Mbah also said he talked about his recent ban of Monday sit-at-home in Enugu with the president and the need for economic partnership with the Federal Government to achieve his “humongous vision” for Enugu.



“A lot of people do not know, but we have huge mineral resources in Enugu. And these resources are sitting under our ground not being productive.


“So, we believe with the partnership we’re trying to basically build with the federal government, we’re able to transform these assets into productive assets,” he concluded.
