Nnamdi Kanu, the incarcerated leader of the secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra and director of Radio Biafra, has written the US President-Elect, Donald Trump, congratulating him on his victory at the November 8 poll and urging him to bring positive change in the affairs of humanity.
Also, the leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Mr. Uchenna Madu, wrote Mr. Trump, promising that his group will work with him for total breakthrough in the political, economical, cultural and religious emancipation of the people of Africa.
Mr. Kanu, in a letter he personally signed, entitled Nnamdi Kanu writes from Prison to congratulate Trump, saying, that Trump’s victory was well deserved and shows that hard work and determination against all odds pay.
“Dear Mr. President-elect, it is with great joy that I, Nnamdi Kanu, received the news of your victory as the 45th President of the United States of America. On behalf of the Indigenous People of Biafra, accept my warmest congratulations,” the letter released to the press by the spokesperson for Mr. Kanu, Emma Powerful, reads.
“Mr. President-elect, the American people have given you their mandate and trust, not only to make America great again, but also to bring positive changes in the affairs of humanity.
“Your victory has placed a historic and moral burden upon you to liberate enslaved nations in Africa, trapped in artificially-created boundaries designed to reinforce colonial domination and subjugation.
“Self-determination is a sacred right of all people as demonstrated by the good people of United Kingdom, when they opted out of the European Union. It is imperative to draw historical parallels between your victory and that of the great Dwight Eisenhower, a fellow Republican, who was instrumental in the dismantling of European colonialism in Africa,” Nnamdi said.
