Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has accused the President General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Nnia Nwodo of betraying the Southeast.
He made the allegations while hinting on strategies the Southeast could use in making Nigeria beg for Igbo presidency.
Kanu claimed Nigerians would beg for Igbo presidency if the Southeast supports IPOB’s push for secession.
The IPOB leader’s comments are contained in a statement issued on Tuesday.
According to Kanu: “Shameless crying babies. Somebody should remind the Efulefus clamouring for ‘Igbo presidency’ that power is not given, it is taken. This is elementary politics. Even a basic idiot understands this doctrine.
“Had the cowardly Igbo brigade led by the grand traitor Nnia Nwodo supported our IPOB led agitations for a separate homeland for Biafran people, by now Nigerians and their British controllers will be kneeling and begging Igbo people to take the Presidency.
“They would be falling over themselves and pleading with Igbo governors to mediate and beg their people to stop their agitation the same way they begged Afenifere and Yoruba political class in 1999.”
Meanwhile, Nigeria’s former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has confirmed that she rejected the chance to be President Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate during the 2011 general elections.
Buhari contested the presidency in 2003, 2007 and 2011 without winning.
However, he defeated incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015, to assume the highest office in the land for the second term.
The senior pastor of the Citadel Global Community Church, Tunde Bakare, earlier this week revealed that current vice-president, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, Oby Ezekwesili, Jimi Agbaje, current Minister of Trade and Industry, Niyi Adebayo, were among those approached to run with Buhari.
Ezekwesili has now claimed she did not “waste a moment in saying no” although she did not give reasons for her decision.
“Many People: Please tell us, is it true you actually rejected the offer to be Vice Presidential Candidate to Buhari as Pastor Bakare @T_Bakare said?
Me: Yes it is true. Any more questions?
“I laughed at the many messages people sent me upon reading @T_Bakare ‘s factual statement that I rejected running as VP with @MBuhari in 2011.
“I did not waste a moment in saying No.
“It is why I have always pitied those who spend their years lying against me,” she tweeted on Tuesday.
