The leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu and Omoyele Sowore, the African Action Congress, presidential candidate for the just-concluded 2019 General Election met in New York to discuss on the injustice that has taken over the affairs of Nigeria system.
They made their status known on Tuesday in New York after a series of closed-door meeting.
During a live session on Facebook to address the mass, Sowore said,
“We met to talk about things we’ve both been passionate about but on a different plane, and we respect those boundaries, but we’ve had very useful conversations today so that everybody that is aspiring for a fair and just society can come together and rise now and bring an end to the sorrow and suffering and the domination and the oppression that has become almost synonymous with our generation and our genes in Nigeria.”
“Those of you out there who think we have big differences and that we can’t talk know that when people have revolutionary minds, these minds meet and bodies eventually meet.”
The IPOB leader praised the meeting and tagged it as liberation for those trapped in Ignorance.
Kanu said, “I met with my good friend Sowore, and it has yielded today a confirmation that people can come together.
“There isn’t much of a difference for what we are fighting for because we are fighting for justice. We know and hope that the people that found themselves today trapped in that contraption called Nigeria will one day be free and it takes people to do it.
“I doubt it comes from heaven and we have to do it, we have decided to do it, and it must be done.”
