Obasanjo told Buhari the Truth – IPoB
The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), has hailed former President Olusegun Obasanjo for his courage to speak out against the ills of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration , and for advising him against seeking second term in office due to poor performance and lack of vision.
IPOB in a statement yesterday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said Obasanjo’s assessment of Buhari’s performances was a true reflection of the realities on ground, and a vindication of IPOB’s Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who had before now said Buhari only came to execute Islamic agenda.
“What Obasanjo said is the clearest endorsement of the philosophy of our leader and prophet of our time Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, that the only way to reign in a dictatorship is by confronting it head on with the truth.
“Buhari has nothing to offer apart from misery and premature deaths. Those who out of ignorance opposed the ideology of freedom as espoused by IPOB can now see that we are visionaries who should be praised not labelled terrorists.
“The statement credited to the former president of Nigeria Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was carefully timed to deliver a devastating blow to the scavenging class of political prostitutes in Igboland that shamelessly went to hawk their wares in Abuja a few days ago.
“The shameless endorsement of Buhari for 2019 by these bunch of undignified individuals under the banner Igbo leaders have showcased to the world what a bunch of delinquent inconsequential vain glorious misery merchants they are.
“We support Obasanjo for his timely intervention because at a time of national crisis and with people losing their lives all across the Middle Belt and Southern Nigeria, anybody discussing partisan politics under such an atmosphere of mass misery is not fit to be regarded as a human being talk less a leader.
“Obasanjo has spoken the truth and should be applauded for it. Those hungry and insatiable APC yes men that visited Aso Rock to endorse Buhari for 2019 under the banner of Igbo leaders should all cover their collective faces in shame.
“They have brought shame and dishonor to Igboland by openly embracing a mass murderer and genocidist.”
IPOB advised Obasanjo to beware of a possible antagonism by the federal government for his courage to speak out against Buhari.
IPOB also commended other eminent Nigerians including Chief Ben Nwabueze and Chief Mbazuluike Amaechi for their consistency in criticising Buhari’s dictatorial tendencies daring the likely consequences of such actions.
“They are the real Igbo leaders the world should look up to, not the collection of failures, charlatans, pimps and political harlots that went to endorse Buhari in Abuja a few days ago.
“Obasanjo’s statement is a slap on the faces of these criminals parading themselves as Igbo leaders. The timing couldn’t have been more apt.
“It is crystal clear from analysis of Obasanjo’s statement that the new coalition he is calling for is something similar to what IPOB is doing, but on broader all encompassing scale that will include all ethnicities in Nigeria rather than one restricted to Biafra alone.”
