The incarcerated leader of of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has written the US President-elect, Donald Trump congratulating him on his victory and pledging to work with his government upon the actualisation of Biafra Republic.
Kanu THISDAY gathered from a reliable source smuggled out a handwritten letter through his friend, convey his happiness over Trump’s victory, during the lawyer’s visit early yesterday.
The handwritten letter the source said was submitted to the media and publicity department of the IPOB yesterday’s morning. The letter which was typed and circulated among journalists, read: “It is with great joy that I, Nnamdi Kanu received the news of your election victory as the 45th President of the US.
“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.
Kanu told Trump that 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.
He said it was imperative to draw historical parallels between his victory and that of the great Dwight Eisenhower a fellow Republican, who was instrumental in the dismantling of European colonialism in Africa.
Kanu called on Trump to follow in Eisenhower’s footsteps by bringing to a deserved end neo-colonial enslavement, currently championed by puppet dictatorial and tyrannical regimes.
He said: “The IPOB have every confidence that as the leader of the free world, you have both the capacity and the will to confront the challenges ahead and meet the expectations of the American people in particular and the oppressed people of the world in general.
