The statement read in part, “The IPOB under the command structure of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu congratulates Donald Trump.
“Trump passed through so many trials and so many odds from the leadership of the party but God Almighty made it possible for him to become the President of United States of America.
“He should also remember his promises to the people of America and other peoples across the globe because USA is going to be great again by the power of God Almighty who selected him from the midst of millions in America”.
Similarly, Niger Delta youths on Wednesday expressed their readiness to work with the United States’ President-elect, describing his electoral victory as unprecedented in the country’s political history.
