The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, has wondered if the people of South-West would still clamour for ‘one Nigeria’ if Apapa and Tin Can Island wharfs located in the region were closed.
Kanu who is presently in the United Kingdom has continued his call for boycott of the presidential elections.
In his latest tweet, the IPOB leader asked if the Yorubas will still be shouting “One Nigeria” if these ports were closed and every Nigerian forced to use Calabar and Port Harcourt seaports.
“If Apapa Wharf & Tin Can Island were closed indefinitely and every Nigerian forced to use Calabar & Igweocha seaports, will some Yorubas still shout One Nigeria?”
“#SitAtHome on February 16, 2019, and be counted”, he tweeted.
