Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has accused Southeast governors of being desperate for power.

Kanu claimed that Southeast governors are ready to sacrifice people and anything for their personal gains.

The South East governors met under the umbrella of South East Governors’ Forum last weekend and came out with a  declaration that members of IPOB are not speaking for the entire region on the call for secession.

Chairman of the forum and Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, who briefed newsmen after the meeting, said they believe in one Nigeria.

“We condemn in totality, the activities of violent secessionist groups in the South East and elsewhere. We firmly proclaim that we do not support them, they do not speak for South East.

“The impression that South-East leaders are silent over some of our youths’ agitations for secession is not correct," the governors stated. 

But speaking on Tuesday through the spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful, Kanu vowed that the Southeast would actualize Biafra.

A statement signed by Powerful reads: “How can South East governors be so desperate for power beyond 2023 that they can sacrifice anything and anybody for personal gains? In case they don’t know, even the Northerners they are trying to impress understand the handwriting on the wall. They know that the governors are on their own.

“These South East Vassals should know that during referendum, they only have one vote just like the man on the street.

“If these frustrated politicians without conscience and direction are discerning enough, they should know that they should first push for a referendum to determine if the people they pretend to be speaking for actually have their support. No matter their pretenses, our people are tired of One Nigeria. They have since opted for Biafra, and there is no going back on this irrevocable resolve!”
