IPOB Rejects Obiozor’s Emergence As President Of Ohanaeze Ndigbo

The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said it will not recognize Prof. George Obiozor as the President-General of the Apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

The group, in a statement made available by its spokesman, Comrade Emma Powerful, yesterday stated that the pro-Biafra group, led by Nnamdi Kanu, cannot work with the Obiozor-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

IPOB said: “We, the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to state without any ambiguity that we cannot work together with the newly appointed President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief George Obiozor.

“This is because he was imposed on the Igbo socio-cultural body by the Fulani cabal running the failed state of Nigeria. The Chief of Staff to the President, Alhaji Ibrahim Gambari, and Miyetti Allah were instrumental to the emergence of Obiozor as Ohanaeze National President, according to our findings.

“IPOB closely monitored the jamboree in the name of election that produced Obiozor as the new Ohanaeze helmsman, critically analyzed the antecedents of those behind his emergence and came to the conclusion that we cannot in all honesty work with him because we are not ideologically compatible.

“Obiozor may not be entirely evil but those behind him are unrepentant enemies of Biafra. Naturally, he can only do the bidding of his sponsors, thus sacrificing Igbo Biafra interest at the altar of few self-centered political desperados.

“We have not forgotten that before the shambolic election of Ohanaeze president, sometime last year, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Associations of Nigeria (MACBAN) wrote a compelling letter to Aso Rock seeking Gambari’s support to install one of their stooges in Ohanaeze Ndigbo as its leader. We raised the alarm then but nobody listened to us, so IPOB cannot work with a man we know will be remote-controlled by a Fulani terrorist group in the shape of Miyetti Allah and by extension the Federal Government of Nigeria,” the group said, adding, “We also wish to clarify that we cannot work with the current bunch of Igbo Efulefus clamouring for a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction in 2023 because we know their real motives. None of the traitors on parade have Igbo Biafra interest at heart. They are only after their personal gains going by their antecedents.”

He added “Our concern is Biafra and nothing more. Any saboteur talking about Nigeria President of Igbo extraction is on his own.”
