Democracy Day in Honour of Abiola, a Greek Gift – IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra has described President Buhari’s pronouncement of June 12 as Democracy Day in honour of Abiola as a Greek gift.

In a statement on Sunday in Awka, Anambra State by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the group urged  Nigerians, especially the people of the South-West, to view the  pronouncement with studious circumspect.

Describing the move as cynical, IPOB said it was not for good that President Buhari had to make such pronouncement a few months to the general elections.

The  group said the move was specifically designed to destroy the glowing handshake across the Niger wherein  the South-East and the South-West geopolitical zones had made “formidable progress” to change the old order of northern oligarchy.

The statement said, “It’s a cynical move designed to truncate any East/West alliance or understanding with regards to a renegotiated Nigeria before 2019.”

The group, however, expressed confidence that high-level educated people of the South-West would be able to “detonate Buhari’s time bomb.”

“We view this announcement of a posthumous award for demised leading sons of Yorubaland in Chief MKO Abiola and Chief Gani Fawehinmi as another clever but desperate attempt by Arewa agents of neo-colonialism to drive a wedge between the burgeoning understanding between the East and West,”the group added.
