The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has said that it supports President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term bid. The proscribed group, in a statement signed by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, said the second coming of the President portends goodwill for them.
It said the move will make the prophesy of Nnamdi Kanu, its leader, come true. The statement said Kanu had said that the struggle for Biafra would be actualised under Buhari and an extension to his tenure had made it likely to happen.
“We have always maintained that the rebirth of Biafra will happen under Buhari or under whoever is answering to his name,” he said.
“This second coming of Buhari portends goodwill for freedom lovers because God Almighty wants to fulfill his divine purpose in the life of Biafrans in 2019 as foretold by our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
The group urged its people to remain undeterred in their bid for secession saying the ”continued existence of this disastrous APC government” remained their path to freedom.
