DG VON canvasses support for Igbo presidency

The Director-General, Voice of Nigeria VON, Mr Osita Okechukwu has urged the Indigenous People of Biafran, IPOB to sheathe its sword and work with other Igbo leaders to actualize the dream of having an Igbo president in 2023.

Mr Okechukwu, a Chieftain of the All-Progressives Congress, APC, also appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to honour elder statesman Chief Mbazulike Amechi with the release of IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu.

He advised IPOB to support the federal government, which he said can accelerate the actualisation of an Igbo president.
