- Those looking for him have the capacity to locate him


Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, on Thursday said the leader of  Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, is not in the custody of the state Government, adding that those who are looking for him have the capacity to locate him.

The Governor said this in an interview with State House correspondents shortly after a meeting he had with Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

 “Those who are looking for him may have a better knowledge and have the capacity to determine the location of anyone in Nigeria. There are people who are trained to track people and it is their responsibility, not mine,” the governor said.

Speaking about the MSME clinic, the Governor disclosed that the government was trying to set up a committee for the MSME Clinic and he was a critical stakeholder because his state is currently the SME hub of Nigeria.

He noted his promotion and campaigns for made in Aba has resulted to growing patronage for Made-in-Nigeria products in Abia.

Part of the direct fallout of the campaign since the past 24 months, he said,  was that some parts of Ariaria Market where the shoe-making enterprise was flourishing had enjoyed steady power for three weeks now on a pilot scheme courtesy of the agency in charge of rural power supply.

Beyond that, he said his government was interfacing and having better relationship with funding agencies and was able to attract about N1.3bn or N1.4 bn on direct sales from the Made-in-Aba shoes and dresses.
