An ex-governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, has taken a swipe at the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, for ordering Igbos to boycott elections in the south-east until a referendum is conducted.

Speaking in Abia state, Orji Kalu said Kanu has the right to agitate but does not have the right to stop people of the region from choosing their leaders.

The chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said it is unconstitutional for the IPOB leader to demand that elections be boycotted in the south-east.

”IPOB people have every right to agitate, after all, we have free speech in the country, everybody has right to agitate for what he feels is right for him, but that should follow due process.

”You know, I went to prison to see Nnamdi Kanu when he was there and I spoke with him. I also almost at the same time visited his parents at their Afara Ukwu, Umuahia country home and I also spoke with them.

”That does not mean I’m in support of what he is doing as some people many tend to believe. At the same time, I’m not against his agitation, he has that right, but like I said earlier, it must follow due process.

”I wish they will understand where the world is going; none of the world powers supports the division of Nigeria.

”What I think we should do as a people is to come forcefully and demand for our rights, right of being president of this country, right of having equality, right of social justice and right of being treated with the same law; these are what we should be asking for,” he said.
