Dr. Stephen Ukpai, representing the YPP (Young Progressives Party), seized a critical moment during a meeting with His Excellency Engr. Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso, the NNPP (New Nigeria People's Party) presidential candidate. The discussion wasn't solely about political strategies or campaign agendas; it veered into a pressing issue concerning the release of Nnamdi Kanu.

Among the various suggestions presented to Kwankwaso was a plea for assistance, utilizing any available connections or means within his reach to facilitate the release of Nnamdi Kanu through political channels.
