Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Saturday declared that it won’t recognize and work with Professor George Obiozor as President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
Kanu explained that Obiozor was imposed on the Southeast by Fulani Canals running Nigeria.
Speaking through IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, Kanu alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari and Miyetti Allah were instrumental in Obiozor’s emergence as Ohanaeze President-General.
A statement by Powerful said: “We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to state without any ambiguity, that we cannot work together with the newly appointed President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief George Obiozor.
“This is because he was imposed on the Igbo socio-cultural body by the Fulani cabal running the failed state of Nigeria. The Chief of Staff to the President, Alhaji Ibrahim Gambari and Miyetti Allah were instrumental to the emergence of Obiozor as Ohaneze National President according to our findings.
“IPOB closely monitored the jamboree in the name of election that produced Obiozor as the new Ohanaeze helmsman, critically analysed the antecedents of those behind his emergence and came to the conclusion that we cannot in all honesty work with him because we are not ideologically compatible. Obiozor may not be entirely evil but those behind him are unrepentant.”
