IPOB to Southeast Elders : Stop Begging For Igbo Presidency

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has admonished Southeast elders to channel their energies towards the realisation of  Biafra instead of begging for Igbo Presidency.

It warned the elders not to use its name or that of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu to seek political appointments.

IPOB also asked the elders, political leaders, and groups, including Ohanaeze Ndigbo, to direct their efforts towards the unconditional release of Kanu.

The group, in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, maintained that its interest was not on having an Igbo as “President under the present contraption called Nigeria.”

The statement reads in part, “Our attention has been drawn to the unpatriotic moves by some unreliable elders in Biafraland who are begging the Alamajiri elders for President of Nigeria from Igbo stock in 2023.

“We want to make it categorically clear to desperate Igbo politicians both elders and self-acclaimed leaders that IPOB under Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not looking for any Nigeria President of Igbo extraction.”

“Some self-appointed Igbo leaders desperate for power in 2023 should refrain from making unguarded utterances that make the entire Igbo race a laughing stock by Northerners. It makes no sense to be desperate over power shift in 2023 while illustrious Igbo son Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is still in detention.”
