- The OBYC advised Nnamdi Kanu to learn from IPOB’s past mistakes as they seek to achieve Biafra
- They stated that disrespecting the former president will not give credence to their struggle
- The group warned Kanu to desist from linking GEJ with the IPOB struggle
Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has been slammed by an Ndigbo group, the Ogbia Brotherhood Youth Council (OBYC) for describing the immediate past president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, as a weak and incompetent leader.
The group’s comment was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday, June 27 by the president, Laguo Gilbert, reports state.
According to Gilbert, Kanu’s statement would not help his struggle to achieve a sovereign Biafran state.
Gilbert stated: “The OBYC advises Kanu to learn from the mistakes made by the group in the past and its predecessor, as this will be necessary to implement its vision.
“Bringing former President Goodluck Jonathan into these issues in such a disrespectful manner will neither help nor give credence to its rancor.
“OBYC, therefore, warns Nnamdi Kanu to desist forthwith from linking a man of honour like Dr. Jonathan into his directionless agitation.”
Recall that NAIJ.com previously reported that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu said he was never a fan of Goodluck Jonathan's regime and that he thinks the ex-president is weak and incompetent.
Kanu said Jonathan is his uncle but he thought Patience Jonathan would have been a better President than her husband.
