Chairman, Leaders of Thought, South of Nigeria, Prof. Ben Nwabueze, an elder states­man and erudite constitution­al lawyer, had hinted that Kanu promised to stop the agitation for Biafra if the Federal Gov­ernment accepts the growing demand for the restructuring of the county where the feder­ating units will control their resources.

The lawyer made this disclosure in Lagos, at a press conference organ­ised by Project Nigeria Movement.

In his words, “Nnam­di Kanu, who is being castigated for calling for self-determination, has authorised me to say that if restructuring is in progress along the line the Leaders of Thought are canvassing, that he would plead with his members and withdraw the agitation for Biafra.

“I want to say here that any­one opposing restructuring Nige­ria to a position where each fed­erating unit would be allowed to control its affairs in a one Nigeria is the one seeking to break Nige­ria and not Nnamdi Kanu.

“If they refused to restructure Nigeria as so stated then there will be trouble and the trouble will not be caused by Nnamdi Kanu.

Nwabueze had earlier at the conference released a 22-page pa­per containing the position of the Leaders of Thoughts on the agitat­ion for restructuring.
