Written by Taiwo Adekola on April 27, 2023
The Indigenous People of Biafra, yesterday, lashed out at the President, Muhammadu Buhari, saying his alleged ‘sins’ against Nigerians would never be forgiven.
The separatist group, in a statement by its Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful, was reacting to Buhari’s recent appeal that “all those that I have hurt, I ask that they pardon me.”
The President, who spoke on Sallah day inside the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, when residents of the Federal Capital Territory, led by the minister, Mohammed Bello, also thanked Nigerians for tolerating him.
But reacting in a statement by its spokesman, IPOB said, “The attention of the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra has been drawn to the statement credited to the President, Muhammadu Buhari, asking and demanding that Nigerians should forgive him while at the same time indicating his interest to relocate to the Niger Republic where he came from.
