The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to the claims by former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode that its leader, Nnamdi Kanu have agreed to work with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to kick out President Muhammadu Buhari of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
Mr Fani-Kayode on Saturday took to his tweeter handle to announce that Mr Kanu had agreed to work together with the PDP to vote Mr Buhari out.
“I just received a call from my brother Nnamdi Kanu. I am delighted that he is alive and well. I commend his strength and courage even as I marvel at the loyalty, resilience and commitment of his lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor and IPOB. We have agreed to work together to VOTE Buhari out,” he tweeted.
However, the deputy leader of IPOB, Uche Mefor, in a release on Sunday said Mr Fani- Kayode’s claim was a propaganda.
The statement reads: “Our attention has been drawn to some deceptive and crude tactics employed by some politicians to drag the name of our leader, Nnamdi Kanu to the mud by suggesting that he held talks with such politicians to oust Muhammadu Buhari”
“We want to use this medium to state unequivocally that at no time did Nnamdi Kanu reach any agreement with any politician to participate in Nigerian politics. Consequently, any publication not authorised by our leader, his deputy or by the head directorate of state regarding IPOB and/or our leader is pedestrian and null and void.
“Finally, Nnamdi Kanu’s humility and courtesy in appreciating a few individuals and groups in Nigeria for what they did to assist during his incarceration cannot be construed as weakness. We invite you to listen to Nnamdi Kanu as he addresses IPOB family members and the world in general from the city of Tel Aviv in Israel on the direction of the struggle.
“It is only after this address that you will advise yourselves accordingly regarding all the lies and propaganda being peddled.”
