Deputy Speaker Kalu Commends Supreme Court’s Swift Release Of Nnamdi Kanu’s Judgment

Hon. Benjamin Okezie Kalu, Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, expressed his commendation for the Supreme Court of Nigeria’s prompt release of the Certified True Copy (CTC) of its December 15, 2024 judgment on the detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The Peace in South East Project, an initiative by the Deputy Speaker advocating for a non-kinetic approach to resolving security challenges in the Southeast, had previously joined forces with Kalu’s family and lawyers to appeal for action on the matter. Following this plea and the expiration of the 14-day window for signing the document, the Supreme Court responded by making the CTC available.

Hon. Kalu lauded the Supreme Court for its responsiveness, acknowledging that the apex judicial body heeded the voice of reason. He also expressed gratitude to the Army, Police, DSS, and other security agencies for contributing to maintaining peace in the Southeast.

While assuring the people of the Southeast that efforts were ongoing to secure Kanu’s release, Hon. Kalu urged them not to lose hope. He emphasized that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s government is genuinely committed to the development of the Southeast region.

Additionally, the Deputy Speaker praised the people for ending the sit-at-home observed on Mondays, urging them to permanently discard it. He highlighted the collaborative efforts between PISE-P, the federal government, and the governors of the five Eastern states to achieve reconciliation, rehabilitation, and reconstruction for the region’s overall development.
