The Presidency** has explained why Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra was left out of the meeting Acting President Yemi Osinbajo held with leaders of the south-east.
Special Adviser to the President on Political matters, Babafemi Ojodu on Sunday said, “Well, the thing is that we were looking for leaders of the people, leaders of thought and we do not see him as a leader of thought in the east. May be opportunity will come at one time or the other for him to be engaged.''
“But so far, what we have done is to look at people who have influence in the communities, whether it is religious, whether it is traditional, whether it is political, social or governance. These are the people we brought in for discussion.”
