Lotanna Ojukwu, younger brother to the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, the former Biafra Head of State, says he believes President Bola Tinubu is a different person from former President Muhammadu Buhari.

The younger Ojukwu said Tinubu doesn’t carry the same baggage as Buhari appeared to carry regarding the Igbo people.

Lotanna Ojukwu stated this on Friday while fielding questions on Arise Television’s Morning Show programme.

He was responding to questions on security issues bedevilling the Southeast region of the country.

“If the governors are sincere, they are enough to be able to talk to the president, they will achieve the result that we are seeking on the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

“The most important fact is that the court has said Nnamdi Kanu should be released.

“We know that Buhari did not have much favour towards the Igbos. He called us a dot in the spot. So really I never believed Buhari was going to release Nnamdi Kanu, and I voiced it out anytime people ask for my opinion.

“But I believe Tinubu is a different person. He doesn’t carry the same baggage as Buhari appears to carry regarding the Igbo people.

“And I would like to see the Yoruba and the Igbos have a better standing love for each other’s ethnic group”.
