The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has stated why it is not supporting the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and the Igbo presidency.
According to the IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, the separatist group is interested in the disintegration of the Nigerian enterprise irrespective and doesn’t want anything to do with anyone contesting in the Nigerian general election.
The group said its members are not part of Obi’s supporters because they are interested in Nigeria’s disintegration.
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 that has nothing to do with or in Nigerian politics. So long as we in IPOB are concerned, Nigeria is irredeemable.”
IPOB also reiterated its call to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, and a referendum in the Southeast.
