Civil rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, (HURIWA), has urged President Bola Tinubu to release the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as a way to begin national reconciliation and healing in the country.

HURIWA, in a statement by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko said the continued detention of Kanu by the Department of State Services two years after he was abducted from Kenya despite an Appeal Court order releasing the IPOB leader is a flagrant disregard for the rule of law and principle of justice.

The group said President Tinubu should consider Kanu’s release as a gift to the South-East geopolitical zone which was marginalized and unfairly treated by the immediate past administration.

A chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Senator Ayo Arise, has said President Bola Tinubu has not disappointed many Nigerians with the removal of fuel subsidy.

Arise, who represented Ekiti North Senatorial District at the National Assembly between 2007 and 2011, stated that President Tinubu had taken the right decision by removing the subsidy, which he said was long overdue.

The former federal lawmaker spoke with newsmen in Ado Ekiti after the funeral service for the late former deputy governor of Ekiti State, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi.

He described Egbeyemi as a perfect gentleman and a father by all definitions whom they all looked up to in politics.

Speaking further on the fuel subsidy removal, Arise added, “He has done extremely well. If he had waited one day, the move may not have been allowed to see the light of day, and the poor masses will continue to suffer in Nigeria.
