The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has accused the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Ibrahim Gambari and Miyetti Allah of imposing Professor George Obiozor as President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
Naija News reports that Obiozor was elected Ohanaeze President-General after his other opponent pulled out of the race.
In a statement on Saturday, IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, declared that the pro-Biafra group won’t recognize and work with Obiozor.
Powerful 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 Ohaneze 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 analysed 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.”
