Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has explained why he played host to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The ex-minister said he decided to identify himself with the IPOB leader because he has the courage to stand for his people irrespective of his travails.
Fani-Kayode told Vanguard that he decided to welcome Kanu because he, “represents a massive constituency which earns him admiration from a vast majority of Nigerians.”
He stated that the meeting was a step in the right direction and a handshake between the people of the east and west.
According to Fani-Kayode, sovereign unity has become a reality and gone are the days when the Igbos and Yorubas will continue to throw bricks at one another as it was time to come together with the Niger Delta and Middle-belt.
He said, “Kanu is my friend and brother and he honoured us with his presence in my home. We had a meeting for about 3 hours which was productive and we were delighted to have him”.
