The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Monday, April 18, 2016 blasted the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) over their alleged advice to President Muhammadu Buhari, urging him to crush the group and their likes with the power vested on him as the president.
IPOB in a statement signed by the group’s media and publicity officer, Mr. Emma Powerful, noted that the ACF clearly lacked understanding of the motive behind the movement for the actualization of sovereign state of Biafra despite the untold hardship being faced in Nigeria under the current administration.
The statement said: “The ACF is a group of clueless and misinformed old wicked men and women who are keeping quiet while the present administration lacked understanding of what governance is all about and has in the process subjected the country into untold hardship, caused by high cost of petroleum products, lack of electricity and bad economic management.
“They lack understanding of what is happening now about the restoration of Biafra, all they know is how to display wickedness and the hatred they have against the people of Biafra, but they forgot that Biafra is a spirit no man born of a woman or forum and organization can defeat.
“Again, ACF should remember that during the time of Nigeria’s Independence, Biafrans like Mazi Mbonu Ejike, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Dr. Michael Okpara, Dr. Akanu Ibiam, Margaret Ekpo and others were at the forefront of the struggle for the independent of Nigeria, these great individuals were all Biafra, where was your vision when these individuals were fighting for independence of Nigeria you are today claiming to be your property.”
