2023: IPOB rejects Peter Obi, Igbo presidency

By Seun Opejobi

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has rejected the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and Igbo presidency.

IPOB said it’s neither interested in an Igbo President nor a Nigerian President of Southeast extraction.

The group said its members are not part of Obi’s supporters because they are interested in Nigeria’s disintegration.

Emma Powerful, the spokesman of the separatist group, said Nigeria was irredeemable.

In a statement he signed, Powerful said: “The Igbo people rallying behind Peter Obi are not IPOB members because IPOB’s goal is the disintegration of the Nigerian enterprise irrespective of whether Peter Obi or anyone else from the Biafran geographic space is contesting in the Nigerian farce of an election.

“IPOB is a freedom fighting movement and has nothing whatsoever to do with or in Nigerian politics. So long as we in IPOB are concerned, Nigeria is irredeemable.”

IPOB also reiterated its call for the release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, and a referendum in the Southeast.
