It's no longer news that our South-East leaders, especially those who are still in powers are keeping mum on the incarceration of one of their own, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu since the day he was arrested and detained by the Department of State Service, DSS, in October 2015.
Easterners are wondering why the long silence from their leaders, and why no actions has been taken since their son was arrested and incarcerated.
Before we proceed on the reasons, have it in mind that Nnamdi Kanu is an indigene of Umuahia, the capital city of Abia State, and the governor of the State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has always been silent while his brother is dying in detention.
Accessing the actions of the leaders from the South-East who have pushed for the release of Mazi Kanu, Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Prof. Pat Utomi, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu and several others has on a different occasions raised the alarm, and call for the release of Nnamdi Kanu.
But why are others afraid to take actions? Why is our so called Representatives, Senators and Governors not saying anything about their son?
The above questions bring us to the reasons why they are keeping mute - below is some of the reasons we coined out while going through the recent happenings in Nigeria today.
1). Fear of President Buhari - Yes! most of the so called leaders are afraid of President Muhammadu Buhari, they are afraid because as they cling to power, they might get off the hook and their personal gains will be lost.
2). Skeleton In the cupboard - Most of our so called leaders are afraid that if they eventually go beyond President Muhammadu Buhari's will, they will be probed, why? Because lots of them has committed many atrocities, hide their self in the power, so if they tried to say thing, they will be probed.
The trend of anti-corruption championed by President Buhari has kept most of them mute, lots of them are looters, who have looted public funds meant for the development of their various zones. In a way to keep their selves away from being probed, they rather remain silent than their voices to be heard.
3). Personal Interest - Lots of our South-East political leaders are not saying anything about Biafra and Nnamdi Kanu because they knew if Nigeria disintegrate today, they will lose a lot, both their businesses and their will of powers.
So to keep their interest glowing, they better off in Nigeria than to have Biafra - while their people are being marginalised.
4). Nursing political ambition - Most of our leaders in the South-East have future interest in the Nigeria political system, they know what they will gain if they finally have access to control some part of the country, as such, they will not talk about Biafra or condemn the illegal detention of their son, in order not to jeopardize their political ambition.
Nigeria is better of one, says a highly prolific South-East leader - he also gave some reasons that if the country finally disintegrate, the South-East will suffer the most.
But do you think If Nigeria disintegrate today South-East will surfer? What do you think about the above reasons why our leaders isn't saying anything about the recent impossible bail conditions granted to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu?
