The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), yesterday said it welcomes the statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari, declaring that any Nigerian is free to leave the country if they have another one, but says no, to the conditions he gave for such exit.
IPOB in a statement entitled, “IPOB welcomes Muhammadu Buhari’s declaration on the impending disintegration of Nigeria, but says no to conditions”, signed by its spokespersons, Mr Emma Nmezu, a lawyer and Dr Clifford Iroanya, said that it is delighted with the comment of Mr President who seem to have bowed to international pressure to consider the inevitable disintegration of Nigeria.
IPOB statement reads: “We, the IPOB are delighted with the comments attributed to retired Maj-Gen Muhammadu Buhari, who seems to have bowed to international pressure to consider the inevitable disintegration of Nigeria, though with conditions we find inconsistent with common sense and logic.”
“According to Buhari, “any Nigerian is free to leave the country if they have another one.” Buhari also stated that “If anybody has a country to go to, let him go, we will stay here and salvage our country.” It is crystal clear that Buhari has seen the futility of fighting against a determined people who are bent on restoring their God given nation which was unjustly robbed them by slave merchants later turned colonialists.
“From all indications, Buhari must have consulted with his colonial backers and religious hardliners in Saudi Arabia who perhaps have taken the time to school him on the sanctity of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP), the inviolability and irreducibility of the rights of Indigenous People to self-determination.
