The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari over the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Expressing its satisfaction, Dr Victor Oye, national chairman of the party disclosed in Awka on Monday that the party was happy that the rule of law has been observed on the matter.
“However, we are not comfortable with the bail conditions which the party views as stringent and punitive,’” he said.
Adherence to principles of federalism
The APGA chairman decried the rising agitation and tension in the country, insisting that the situation cannot be controlled by force but through strict adherence to principles of true federalism.
He noted that such agitations might persist in as much as the crucial national questions that gave rise to them remain unaddressed.
“All we need is justice, equitable distribution of national wealth, implementation of the Federal Character provisions in the 1999 Constitution as amended.
“Once these things are in place, then ethnocentric interests and agitation will be drastically reduced,” he said.
