The Ogbia Brotherhood Youth Council (OBYC) on Tuesday condemned the assertion by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu that former President Goodluck Jonathan was weak and incompetent.
The IPOB leader had in an interview said that former First Lady Dame Patience Goodluck Jonathan would have made a better President than her husband, an Ijaw man from Bayelsa State
But the Ijaw group described Kanu’s assertion as unfortunate in a statement signed by its National President, Dr. Laguo Gilbert.
“Such radical statements remain one of the reasons why the IPOB agitation lacks its required substance. The OBYC however advises Mr. 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,” Gilbert said.
OBYC added that bringing the former President into Biafra issues in such a disrespectful manner would not help or give credence to ‘his directionless agitation’.
He said, “Bringing former President Goodluck Jonathan into this issues in such a disrespectful manner will neither help nor give credence to its rancour. OBYC therefore warns Nnamdi Kanu to desist forthwith from linking a man of honor like Dr. Jonathan into his directionless agitation.”
