The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has declared that the leadership style of President Muhammad Buhari will speedily bring about the actualisation of the sovereign State of Biafra.
IPOB’s stance was contained in a statement signed its spokespersons, Barrister Emma Nmezu and Dr Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya.
The group claimed that Buhari had done more than any past leader in the history of Nigeria to divide and dismember the country.
According to the IPOB, Buhari’s leadership had significantly catalyzed and fast-forwarded the restoration of the nation of Biafra.
The statement reads, “Without the efforts of Buhari, the crescendo reached today on the return of the nation of Biafra would not have been possible.
“From bombing of Cross River and Akwa Ibom States with the banned NAPALM bombs, through the genocidal killings of Biafrans from August 2015 to February 2016, and to the utter disregard of court orders, Buhari has steadily and consistently worked in the favour of the re-emergence of Biafra.
“The irrelevance to which former President Goodluck Jonathan consigned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was reversed by Buhari, all to the advantage of Biafrans.”
The group claimed that Buhari’s blood-thirsty nature, among several other factors, were propelling him to quicken the restoration of Biafra.
IPOB said, “Among these are the blood-thirsty nature of Buhari and the neo-Hitler attitudes of this despot. Another big factor is the misinformation he received from his incompetent Department of State Services (DSS) who deceived him into believing that incarcerating the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will work in his favour.
“There is also his belief in using weapons and brute force to solve simple political problems. Today, it is evident that if anybody is in danger in the entire Nigeria, it is attributable to Buhari. This man is an incarnate of Mohamed Siad Barre of Somalia and the outcome is the ongoing dismemberment of Nigeria and the quickened restoration of the nation of Biafra.
”Just like his role model Mohamed Siad Barre, Buhari has indulged in crimes against humanity and in selective cum partisan indictments. For instance, he ordered the unlawful arrest, detention and public intimidation of Femi Fani-Kayode for standing up for the truth when most Yoruba so-called elites are terrified to speak.
“The condemnable barbaric slaughter of hundreds of innocent Shiite Muslims in Zaria and unwarranted illegal detention of their leader Zakzaky are all contributing to the calamitous collapse of the Lugard-created Nigeria. Why Fani-Kayode is being detained for alleged fraud while Chibuike Amechi and Bola Ahmed Tinubu are allowed to walk freely is beyond human comprehension.
”Why arrest Fani-Kayode, a Yoruba man, when a Hausa-Fulani man called Ibrahim Lamorde, a former Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) boss that stole Four Trillion Naira is free to enjoy his loot? Why arrest Fani-Kayode for corruption when Halliburton scandal involving mainly Hausa-Fulani people is yet to be investigated?
”From his terrible public utterances, to his divisive and sectional government policies, through his placement of only Hausa-Fulani people in his “kitchen cabinet“, to killing of Biafrans and Shiite Muslims, Buhari has worked tirelessly for the balkanization of Nigeria.”
Urging the President to continue with his style of leadership, IPOB stressed that the actualisation of Biafra was only a matter of time.
”The Indigenous People of Biafra are happy for this leadership style of Buhari. We pray that he continues unceasingly.
”Even the illegal incarceration and unconstitutional prosecution of the leader of IPOB have worked maximally to the favour of Biafrans. We urge Buhari to continue and not to stop because we want to see the independent nation of Biafra come very soon and Buhari is speedily bringing it to fruition,” the statement said.
