South-East Youths and Elders’ Forum, SEYEF, a non-political pressure group, has warned Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to stop flouting his bail conditions.
This is contained in a communique issued after its meeting in Enugu, signed by Maxi Ikechukwu K. Edwin, Director of Media and Publicity.
Expressing joy that Kanu has been released from prison, SEYEF, however, warned him to keep a low profile, to avoid another round of face-off with government.
The communique further noted that the group agreed that ”
Southeast leaders should start massive sensitisation campaigns ahead of next year’s census exercise in the region;
”That political parties in the region should field their first-eleven candidates in the preparations to the conduct of the 2019 general elections;
“That Southeast Leaders in Abuja are not doing enough to attract development to the region;
“That enough sensitisation has not been done by Southeast Leaders on the upcoming population census by the National Population Commission;
“That, the current crisis of confidence in the Southeast is not about the development of the region, but a fallout of the move and counter moves by political actors of the region to manoeuvre each other”.
SEYEF also condemned what it called the “continuous harassment and intimidation of the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu by the Federal Government”.
