REVEALED! Nnamdi Kanu explains why 27th May was made Children’s Day (Must Read)
Despite enthusiasm derived from activism, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is known for telling history and making futuristic predictions to his followers and this time he may not be disappointing.
In the latest remark made during a live broadcast earlier on Friday, the IPOB leader shocked supporters when he gave reason Nigerian government fixed every 27th May for the celebration of Children in the country.
Going through memory lane, he said that late foremost Biafran Chief, Chukwuemeka O. Ojukwu, was mandated in Enugu State by the Consultative Forum Assembly to declare the sovereign nation on May 27th, 1967 which lead to the civil war.
However, to possibly take away the importance attached to the said day, Kanu stated, the FG mapped out the same day for the kids’ event.
He was equated as saying “Do you know why they made 27th May “Children’s day”?
“It was on the 27th of May that the Consultative Forum Assembly in Enugu sat together and gave Ojukwu the mandate to declare Biafra, so they made 27th may Children’s day to take away the importance of that day.
You will recall, Nnamdi Kanu, who is also Commander of Eastern Security Network and Director of Radio Biafra, London is claiming that ‘Buhari is dead.
The allegation, which has stirred controversy both within and outside the shores of Africa, was refuted by Presidency.
Kanu alleged that Buhari that was voted in 2015 died in 2017 in a London hospital and hence was replaced by an impostor named ‘Jubril’ under the watch of late Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari’s led cabal.
Kanu commands a huge number of supporters who obey and holds dear every word or order from his mouth.
Meanwhile, Kanu has urged all followers, to observe the Biafra Memorial Day scheduled to hold the 31st of May this year with a prayer procession at every members’ home.
The event targets to honour and remember all fallen Heroes and Heroines slain in the course of Biafra agitation before and after the end of the Nigeria-Biafra war in 1970.
The Day originally holds every 30th of May but was shifted to a day forward with a sit-at-home order.
Similarly, the government of Imo and the police commissioner has urged residents of the state to ignore IPOB’s order to lock up their business activities.
Additionally, some schools and some private businesses in the state reportedly have instructed students and workers to observe holidays for their safety.
