Biafra: What Buhari Govt. Should Do To Kanu’s IPOB – Elder Statesman
The Nigerian government should consider the agitations of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to avoid distraction, Concise News reports.
This counsel came from elder statesman and Secretary-General of the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) Ayo Opadokun.
Concise News learned that Opadokun said the agitations of the group may be right but he does not back their mode of operation.
“To people in government, IPOB members are rebels but to those who are fighting for self-determination, they are doing something that is totally acceptable,” he told Daily Independent.
“Nobody gives you your right anywhere in the world, you must fight for it every day”.
“If that is one of the ways by which they could do so, the Nigerian government should do what is right and respond favourably if they don’t want an unnecessary distraction.” Read more here.
