Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party(PDP)Atiku Abubakar may yet to get over his recent utterance at a campaign in Enugu State recently where he said he alone can guarantee Igbo presidency.
This time,the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) has threatened to ban him from campaigning in south east if he does not check his utterance especially linking its group to his campaign and its struggle for Biafra nation.
According to a statement by the spokesperson of IPOB,Emma Powerful,he was particularly irked by comment of stopping Biafra struggle if he wins the presidential election in 2023.
He said “Biafra Independence movement struggle being championed by IPOB is beyond their local politics. IPOB being the largest liberation movement in the world has a crop of intellectuals in her leadership doing great works and are unstoppable by the criminal Nigeria polititcians.
“Atiku Abubakar and his political gang must know that we allowed them to come to Enugu State does not mean we don’t know what to do to stop them from entering Enugu State ever again.
“As much as we are a civilized movement, we don’t want to be used for corrupt election campaigns or we will forced them to stop their campaigns in our territories.
“If he continues after this warnings, we would ensure he doesn’t campaign in the South East during this campaign season let alone talking rubbish to his rented audience. IPOB knew why we did not stop him yesterday and if he doubts our capability of stopping him, let him talk against IPOB again.”
Also the group has warned Atiku against using some Igbo politicians in his campaign train claiming that they would only bring him failure.
“If Atiku thinks he is dealing with those set of Alleluia polititcians around him from the East, he will be disappointed because they are a bunch of expired polititcians with no iota of integrity or respect from the people.
“They are only after the monies Atiku looted by selling Nigeria Assets to his cronies as Vice President and Head of Privitization team during Obasanjo Government. For the sake of these men and the fulani evil agenda, Atiku and PDP will lose entire South East totally if there would be another shameful selection process called election in Nigeria by 2023.
