The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi has faulted the Federal Government for proscribing the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB. According to Obi, IPOB is not a terrorist organization. This is as the group has consistently stated that they are freedom fighters, not terrorists. Recall the Nigerian government had proscribed IPOB following the agitation for the actualization of Biafra.
 
Despite the proscription, IPOB, and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, had continued to push for the actualization of Biafra. But, the separatist group had denied the terrorist tag by the Nigerian government. However, Obi backed claims that members of the group are not terrorists. Speaking with Channels Television, the presidential candidate said IPOB members around him do not constitute a threat to the country.
 
According to Obi: “The only thing I disagree with is naming IPOB terrorist; they are not terrorists. Those who took the decision may have information that I don’t have.

“I stay in Onitsha, and I can tell you that they are people I pass them on the road every day. “I meet and live with them; in fact, I usually see people gathering, and I have never had the sense of threat or molestation from them, even when they gather.”

You are mad. If not for IPOB the Fulani herdsmen would have over ran the country. Wait a minute. Were you not in the country when Buhari warned Goodluck of carrying out genocide by killing the boko haram terrorists? He said that fight against boko haram is fight against the North.  Is he not widely known as the patron of boko haram terrorists group?

We need a sincere person as President, and being sincere can never affect Obi's impending victory. Enemies and people sitting on the fence may think that he just made a mistake because of their bias, but if he can talk about bandits and Boko Haram, surely he can talk about IPOB in all sincerity.

Continue to showcase your hatred for the Igbos.  It is so obvious, you can't hide it any longer.

"stress to his life if voted as president??  Shocked" Did you see anybody put a gun to any candidate's head to run for presidency?? All of them are contesting because they want to be president.
And that Nigeria has nothing?? Are you kidding me?? Nations that has the kind of resources Nigeria has been blessed with in this world are not much! Bad leadership and of course bad citizenship has always been the problem.
