‘Nigerian Youths Have Abandoned Peter Obi’ – PDP

2023 Presidency: IPOB Rejects Peter Obi, Igbo Presidency

by Victor Ndubuisi

The Peter Obi and Igbo presidential candidates from the Labour Party (LP) have been rejected by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

IPOB stated that it had no interest in an Igbo or a Southeast-derived Nigerian president.

The group said that because they are interested in Nigeria’s division, none of its members are among Obi’s followers.

The separatist group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, claimed that Nigeria was beyond saving.

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.
