The President of the Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, has revealed why he dumped Nnamdi Kanu and his agitation for a breakaway state of Biafra.
He disclosed this while speaking yesterday at a convocation lecture he delivered at the Federal University, Ndufu-Alike Ikwo, Ebonyi State.
He said: ''I supported the restructuring of Nigeria but Kanu opted otherwise and the road he chose leads to nothing but to destruction and annihilation of Igbos''

The lecture titled, ‘National reconciliation and role of universities,’ was chaired by the wife of the first President of Nigeria, Prof. Uche Azikiwe.
Speaking further, the Ohaneze President said he remained opposed to hate speeches, use of expletives and the opposition of the November November 18 gubernatorial polls in Anambra state. 

He said: “I support restructuring, it will afford each region the opportunity to harness their potential, explore their resources, and enhance true federalism.
“In the 1st Republic when the country was restructured into regions, our founding fathers, like Chief Obafemi Awolowo, were able to build the first television station, Liberty Stadium, multi-million Cocoa House in the Western Region of Nigeria, while Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe established the University of Nigeria, Nsukka;  Emene  Steel Industry, and Golden Brewery Factory in the Eastern Region.”
Kanu, he further said transgressed the bounds of decency by abusing personalities which amounted to a suicide mission and the need to differ from him became absolutely necessary.
“I will never support hate speech, if that is the only part to unpopularity I choose it; courage is an indispensable hallmark of leadership,” he stressed.
“I champion restructuring; it will afford the components units of the country the opportunity to enhance their economic potential and encourage true federalism,” he added.
