Enugu Nigeria (African Examiner) – The leadership of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has lambasted the Minister of Labour, Dr. Chris Ngige over his recent claims that the South-East region has not been marginalized by President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
They accused the Minister of running his mouth just to please his pay master in Abuja.
It would be recalled that while speaking during the annual convention and 2016 graduation ceremony of Skill Acquisition Students of Bina Foundation, Enugu weekend, Dr. Ngige dismissed recent statement by Ohanaeze Ndigbo that the Igbo race has been excluded in the scheme of things by the present administration.
Reacting to the Minister’s statement Tuesday through its spokesman, Emmanuel Powerful, the group said people like Dr. Ngige and other political jobbers feeding off the crumbs from the master’s table should be ashamed of themselves and know that the day of reckoning was fast approaching.
The statement read thus: “Anybody or group of persons against the new found courage of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in supporting the quest for freedom for all must examine his or her conscience before offering an opinion.
“Nevertheless, we IPOB have gone beyond the rent-boy era of politics in Igbo speaking part of Biafra that is something these no hopers should know.
“This is the time to embolden the few good men left in Igboland not to pander to the interest of political vultures who have brought nothing tangible to the emancipation discourse championed by our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB members worldwide.
“Our goal remains the attainment of absolute freedom indeed not just in mere words, for all oppressed peoples of Biafra and beyond.
“We also commend the Ohaneze leadership for demonstrating the leadership charisma for once through out their period in office as executive in Igboland.
“Again, as long as the Ohaneze Ndi Igbo and other groups and social cultural organizations in Biafraland remains on the side of the truth without fear or favour, IPOB and its leadership will continue to support every of their initiatives aimed at liberating, the emancipation or promotion of our people.
“We hope that other social cultural organizations and elders in Biafraland of Ijaw, Ishekiri, Anang, Ibibio, Kalabari, Opobo, Igala, Idoma, Ogoni, Urohobo, Igbanke etc will come out and toll the line with the recent statements made by Ohaneze Ndi Igbo towards the realization of God’s nation Biafra and the liberation of our people.
“Until this sacred and divine mission is accomplished, IPOB worldwide will never rest’ so also our ordained leader and prophet of our time Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.” it declared
