Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Rejects 2023 Southern Presidency, Warns Politicians

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has rejected the idea of a southern presidency in 2023.

Kanu in a statement on Friday said the move will be a distraction and even if eventually actualized, such a person will be impotent to act as a true leader.

He alleged further in the statement released on his Twitter handle that a southern president will be controlled by the Northern Muslim politicians who are keen on holding on to power in Nigeria.

He, therefore, urged politicians from the southern region not to be deceived by the allure of a power shift in 2023.

He wrote: “The quest for Southern Presidency is diversionary. The transitory allure of power shift to the South has blinded Southern politicians to how far gone Nigeria has become Fulanized & Islamized, all to the degree that a Southern President will always be impotent. Think about it!”

According to him, if the agitations to get equal opportunities with other parts of the country are discarded, it would only elongate the already existing pitiable condition and thus subject her people to second class citizens.

He urged Igbos not to relent but to remain firm, resolute, and undaunted in the face of legions of challenges as there is always light at the end of the tunnel.

No One Deserves To Die For Seeking Biafra’s Restoration – Nnamdi Kanu Tells FG

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has submitted that no one deserves to die in seeking the restructuring of Nigeria.

Kanu in a tweet on Monday, declared that Biafra agitators, Oduduwa republic agitators as well as #EndSARS protesters should be given a platform by the government to present their grievances.

He added that the government can’t and shouldn’t use force to meet the demands of the people but rather pacify them and allow a referendum to take place so as to determine the makeup of the country.

He wrote: “No one deserves to die for seeking #Biafra’s restoration, or even #Oduduwa republic. Not to talk of #EndSARS. None is a crime. The quest for freedom can only be pacified by consent, not State terror. That consent is determined by vote, otherwise known as #referendum.”

Meanwhile, Kanu had earlier called for President Muhammadu Buhari to follow the example of President Manuel Merino and resign as the President of Nigeria.

This online medium reports Merino had resigned as the President of Peru following the death of two protesters who were protesting against the government in Lima, the capital city.

The IPOB leader in his reaction to the development condemned the Nigerian government over its approach to the recent #EndSARS protest across the nation.

He wrote, “Peru President Merino resigns following street protests but in Nigeria, following #EndSARS protests, Nigeria president is either persecuting and freezing bank accounts of Nigerian youths or slaughtering them at #Obigbo and Nigerians are seemingly tolerating it.”

Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Reveals Only Reason South Won’t Get 2023 Presidency

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, says Southern politicians will find it hard to grab power in Nigeria because some Northern caucus “have made it clear that they will keep the Presidency forever”.

The IPOB leader who is also the Director of Radio Biafra, made this declaration on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, via his Twitter handle on Saturday, November 14.

According to the self-exiled leader of the outlawed group, “even if you somehow get it, you will be caged.”

 

 

“It’s clear that Southern politicians are prepared to sell their souls for the 2023 Presidency. But guess what? It won’t happen because the #Fulani have made it clear that they will keep the Presidency FOREVER. Even if you somehow get it, you will be caged. You will be powerless.”

 

APPOINTED LEADERS IN IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has revealed that whenever  a new leader is appointed into any office/position in IPOB they are happy but they are removed from that office/position for any superior reason(s) or replaced with another person for better performance, they become offended, full of themselves and automatically turns against IPOB .

 

Why is it that whenever they are appointed newly into any office/position in #IPOB, they are happy, zealous and promised to be loyal and work selflessly? But, the day they are removed from that office/position for any superior reason(s) or replaced with another person for better performance, they become offended, full of themselves and automatically turns against IPOB and her leadership that elevated them in the first place, and even form a parallel organization to fight IPOB and her leadership, instead of using their newly formed organization to work for Biafra restoration? Why?
MY ADVISE:
Those of you who are still occupying one office/position or another in IPOB, please note;
There is nobody that stays in an appointed office till death, not even in a family company except those who appointed you decides that you remain there till death do you part. There is always a provision in every Organisation/Movement for promotion, demotion and re-assignment to other positions based on your performance.
Every officer/leader of any unit or department in any capacity in IPOB from the Deputy leader to the least position in IPOB is SUBJECT TO REMOVAL and SUBJECT TO BE REPLACED BY THE LEADERSHIP OF IPOB for effective operation and performance based on their wisdom and rules guiding the Movement for the purposes of Efficiency, Growth and Improvement.
The way IPOB leadership had powers and appointed you into any office is the same way they have the powers to remove you or replace you with another person. Don’t take it personal when it happens to you.
The only person I believe that can’t be removed or replaced by the leadership of IPOB is the IPOB LEADER. His removal can only happen by DEATH OR BY HIS VOLUNTARY RESIGNATION, stating/seeing that he’s no longer interested in Biafra restoration and therefore, not fit anymore and can no longer lead the Movement for Biafra restoration.
It’s childish that whenever some of these people who were given any office/position in IPOB are removed from that office/position or replaced with another person, they become offended and constitute themselves as gossipers and problems to IPOB and start talking nonsense everyday online just to poison the minds of the public against IPOB and her leadership. Why?
I think these nonsense should stop immediately. Whenever you are removed or replaced and you are tired and don’t want to submit yourself under IPOB again to continue working under IPOB, because you think you were unjustly removed or replaced, please quietly go home and retire at once or find yourself a paid job or business if you had none before and get busy until Biafra is restored. You can still be working for Biafra restoration from wherever you are if you really want Biafra and meant well for Biafra than constituting yourself a nuisance or conspiring with the enemies against IPOB and Biafra restoration.
Whenever I see any person who behaves like that after being removed from office by IPOB, I take it that, that person was NEVER REAL AND SERIOUS from day one, he or she was only pretending to be serious because of office/position he or she was occupying and immediately he or she was removed from that office/position the real person manifested. Otherwise, how can a selfless and serious minded person gang up with others who don’t mean well for Biafra restoration to destroy what he or she has laboured to build for years just because he or she was removed from office/position?
Unbelievable!

2023: Why Umahi refused to support ‘his brother’ Peter Obi in 2019 – Nnamdi Kanu

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has claimed that the Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi never supported or accepted Peter Obi as Vice President to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in 2019, “because that would have truncated his own chances in 2023.”

Umahi, Chairman of the South East Governors Forum, recently decamped to the All Progressives Congress, APC from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,

Kanu alleged that Umahi rather chose to work for APC presidency, “against his own brother, not minding that both of them are in the same PDP. ”

“No Igbo man will get the nod to fly the flag of either of the main political party come 2023.”

According to him, Umahi, Governor Nyesom Wike and others are merely storing up trouble for themselves and their children by allegedly conniving with the army and police in the killing of their people.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday commended the defection of Governor Umahi to the APC.

The Nigerian leader described it “as a bold move driven purely by principle rather than opportunistic motives”.

Wike, soldiers will pay heavy price over death of IPOB members at Obigbo – Nnamdi Kanu

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has vowed that Governor Nyesom Wike will never be forgiven over the recent killing by security agents in Oyigbo Local Government Area of the state.

Kanu stated this while sharing an obituary poster of someone he alleged to be “One of the victims of Wike’s #obigbogenocide.”

He described the governor as a dead man walking, threatening that the entire Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital will bear the brunt of what happened in Oyigbo.

“Instead of us to forget what happened at Obigbo, let heaven and earth come to pass,” Kanu wrote on Facebook.

The perpetrators of this crime against humanity and their supporters…will be hunted down one after the other, them and their families.

“Igweocha [Port Harcourt] as a whole will pay a very heavy price for what Wike and Fulani soldiers did at Obigbo.

Nnamdi Kanu: Wife begs Nigerian government for information

ABUJA-AN Igbo group under the aegis of Conference of Igbo Youth Professionals Worldwide, tasked foreign governments, especially the United Kingdom (UK) and Isreal, to deny the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, the freedom of using the privilege of his foreign citizenship to incite violence against the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

This was as the Igbo group further reminded the foreign nations that Nnamdi Kanu remained a fugitive to the law, having jumped bail that was granted him by a court of competent jurisdiction trying him here on a criminal charge of treasonable felony and other related offences.

Specifically, the group alleged that the separatist leader was taking advantage of his sojourn in the aforesaid countries to cause anarchy and insurrection, through orchestrated incitement of members of the proscribed IPOB.

The Worldwide Youth organisation recalled that, in the eyes of the law, IPOB is a terrorist organisation, as it had been so declared by a Federal High Court in Abuja. Back home, the youth group reminded both the Federal and State Governments where members of the outlawed group reside, to act more decisively, given the extant law proscribing the IPOB. Consequently, it tasked the military and other relevant security agencies to do the needful, as the law was on their side on the subject matter. In a statement, Sunday, by its President-General,

Barr. Maduabuchi Nwodo, the Conference of Igbo Youth Professionals Worldwide, charged Ndigbo across the globe to demonstrate courage by denouncing Kanu, IPOB, members and all that the group stands for.

The group said its call was predicated on the latest utterance of the IPOB leaders, where he incited police and military officers of Southern and Middle Belt extractions of resigning and burning their service uniforms. “Kanu’s call was unilateral. He was not speaking for the Igbo Nation but himself. We are disturbed at the incessant inciting statements coming from Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, who has been parading himself as leader of Indigenous People of Biafra against the Nigerian state.

We are aware of his status as a citizen of both the United Kingdom and the Nation of Israel. Having worked and contributed effortlessly to see Nigeria at its present state, we believe that the United Kingdom and Israel would not want to see Nigeria a shattered place. It is in this regard that we are strongly appealing to them to rein in on Kanu, whose activities have been against the unity of Nigeria.

“The latest call by Mr. Kanu on the police and military officers of Southern and Middle Belt extractions not only to abandon their duty post but to also resign and burn their service uniforms must be ignored.

We wish to inform them that Kanu is alone in his cessation project and has nobody behind him,” the Youth group said. Describing Kanu as a fugitive who escaped the law after being granted bail following his arrest and detention over treasonable felony, the Conference of Igbo Youth Professionals insisted that Israel and the UK can turn in the IPOB leader given that he was on the nation’s wanted list.

Even as it admitted that the South East region had not had its fair share in the one Nigeria project, the Igbo group said the pursuit of inclusive government must be channeled through appropriate lawful means. “Through our people are highly marginalized and deserve the right for agitation, but that must be done legally and by the appropriate people not a deviant young man like Nnamdi Kanu who is out for his selfish interest,”

it said. It informed the foreign nations that Kanu was barred by a Federal High Court in Abuja from participating in, or addressing public rallies or protests, as part of the conditions for his bail, a development it regretted, had been ignored.

“Kanu has disobeyed this valid court order, which has not been set aside, either by the trial court or by the Court of Appeal. “Kanu has always lamented the treatment of people from the southeast zone by the Nigerian government and by other Nigerians. This formed the reason for his agitation for a country of his own.

“However, while Kanu has a right to legally clamour for whatever he believes in, he should also know that the Igbo Nation has recognized spokespersons in the forms of the governors, legislators, and Ohaneze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural group. Any serious statements are supposed to come from these people after extensive consultations”, the statement noted. Meanwhile, the group has thrown its support behind the lawful efforts by security agencies to check the excesses of IPOB members across the South East, and some contiguous states. It, however, called for more decisive steps to be taken against the Biafra agitators, saying more legitimate approaches will be adopted by the Igbo nation to achieve their demands.

“The Igbo nation constitutes responsible, law-abiding and patriotic citizens, who are prepared to achieve their goals within the confines of a united and indivisible Nigeria. “This, we shall achieve through non-violence means, as persuasion and conviction are the tools we shall deploy”.

“We, therefore, call on our brothers from the other parts of the country, to recognise our cry for marginalisation, and support our course to produce the next President come 2023. “Also, we call on the federal government to reflect the federal character principle in all appointments, to allow Ndigbo to serve their fatherland”.

IPOB: Why I Am Fighting For Biafra – Nnamdi Kanu

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, on Friday stated why he is agitating for the actualization of Biafra.

The IPOB leader noted that the convergence of the core value of the North, East and West hinders Nigeria from functioning as a nation.

Kanu while speaking with the publisher of Ovation magazine, Dele Momodu on an IPOB community radio, noted that bringing Nigerians together without paying attention to the core value system of these ethnic groups has effect on the development of Nigeria.

”So, these are the anomalies that Africans particularly educated Nigerians need to sit down to address. That’s why we have unrested development, that’s why nothing seems to be working because the convergence of these diverse core value system of Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo is making it impossible for Nigeria to function as a viable state.”

He further stated that he would not be agitating for sovereign state of Biafra if Nigeria was created by a Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa man.

“Nigeria was not constructed by a Yoruba man, if it were I would have accepted it, Nigeria was not created by a Fulani man, if that was the case who knows I might have accepted that, Nigeria was not created by an Hausa man either, Nigeria was created by a white man and named by a woman.”

“Nobody came from these ethnic groups, they never got together to say our name should be Nigeria. A white man determined that. I cannot get to England to say to the English people I want to rename Liverpool, I want to give it another name, I am sure they will think I am mentally ill or unstable and put me in jail.”

“Now the problem is why should Nigerians or Africans accept the name Nigeria, which does not mean anything in Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa language,” he stated.

Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Reveals Why Nigeria Cannot Work Successfully

The convergence of the diverse core value system of the North, West, and East is posing a serious obstacle for Nigeria to function as a viable state, Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said.

GolenNewsNg  reports that Kanu who doubles as the director of Radio Biafra said Nigeria cannot work successfully during in an Instagram live interview with the publisher of Ovation magazine, Dele Momudu on Thursday evening.

The IPOB leader argued that bringing Nigerians together without paying attention to the core value system of these ethnic groups was the bane of development and unrests in the country.

His words: “So, these are the anomalies that Africans particularly educated Nigerians need to sit down to address. That’s why we have unrested development, that’s why nothing seems to be working because the convergence of these diverse core value system of Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo is making it impossible for Nigeria to function as a viable state.”

Kanu stressed that he would not have been agitating for a sovereign state of Biafra if Nigeria was created by a Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa man.

“Nigeria was not constructed by a Yoruba man, if it were I would have accepted it, Nigeria was not created by a Fulani man if that was the case who knows I might have accepted that, Nigeria was not created by an Hausa man either, Nigeria was created by a white man and named by a woman.

“Nobody came from these ethnic groups, they never got together to say our name should be Nigeria, a white man determined that. I can not get to England to say to the English people I want to rename Liverpool, I want to give it another name, I am sure they will think I am mentally I’ll or unstable and put me to jail.

“Now the problem is why should Nigerians or Africans accept the name Nigeria, which does not mean anything in Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa language,” he stated.

Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Clarifies Relationship Between IPOB And #EndSARS Protests

Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has rejected narratives trying to paint him or the IPOB group as sponsors of the #EndSARS protests.

This is as he explained on Thursday that the #EndSARS protest is a spontaneous and justifiable reaction by Nigerians against all forms of injustice in the country.

GoldenNewsNg  reports the #EndSARS protests started as a call on the government to end the controversial Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the Nigeria Police Force, but quickly metamorphosed into a call on the government to end all forms of police brutality and demand a better Nigeria.

Kanu stated that those trying to link him or the IPOB group as sponsors of the protest are only pushing a wrong and unpopular propaganda.

He wrote on Twitter: “I’ve noted the propaganda to demonize the IPOB/me as the triggers of the #EndSARS protest. Well, hear this: The protest is a spontaneous & justifiable reaction by #NigerianYouths who have had enough of a #Nigeria that thrives on INJUSTICE. But if you insist it’s #IPOB, so be it.”

Meanwhile, Kanu has said “it’s highly irresponsible and dangerous for Governor Wike to conclude without any investigations” that it was IPOB members that killed ‘security personnel’ at Oyigbo.

The IPOB leader, therefore, warned that if any pro-Biafra agitator “loses his life in these your antics”, the Rivers State governor ” held eternally responsible.”

Kanu tweeted: “It’s highly irresponsible & dangerous for @GovWike to conclude – without any investigations – that it’s #IPOB members that killed ‘security personnel’ at #Obigbo.

“Dear #LittleHitler, if any #Biafran loses his life in these your antics, you will be held eternally responsible,” the tweet added.

This he said in reaction to the decision of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike to proscribe IPOB in the state and ordered security agents to deal with IPOB members found in the state.

 

Why I Will Never Defend IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu – Deji Adeyanju

A sociopolitical activist, Deji Adeyanju, has given reasons why he cannot support the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

In a post on his Twitter handle, Adeyanju accused the IPOB leader of fuelling attacks against policemen and their stations in Rivers State.

GoldenNewsNg  reports that men of the Nigeria Police Force were killed, as many stations were burnt and arms carted away during the End SARS protest.

Speaking on the recent violence in Rivers, Adeyanju stated that Kanu had told his supporters to attack the police, and that he also asked them to burn down their stations.

“Nnamdi Kanu told his supporters to attack the police & burn down police stations. That’s the person you expect me to defend? Non-violent resistance always work.

“However, the security agents must stop extrajudicial killings of those alleged to have committed any crime. If anyone has committed any crime, arrest & charge them to court.

“Stop killing Nigerians in revenge missions,” he said.
