By Joseph Erunke

ABUJA-The Coalition of South East Professionals Community in Nigeria and Diaspora (CSEPNND),stated the assertion,Sunday, by the Indigenous Folks of Biafra,IPOB,stating its opposition to Igbo presidency in 2023, has vindicated its earlier place that IPOB was being sponsored by fifth columnists to destroy South East area.

Recall that IPOB,in an announcement by its spokesman, Emma Highly effective, had given

 purpose for its refusal to assist Nigerian president of Igbo extraction, alleging that “all of the folks being ready for the place are stooges that will probably be used in opposition to the curiosity of Ndigbo, Biafrans and the Biafra agitating teams.”

However reacting, the Igbo professionals’ group stated it was not stunned on the place of the outlawed group, expressing happiness that it alerted the area on the actual identities of IPOB and its chief,Mazi Nnamdi Kanu earlier.

It, nonetheless, regretted that many gullible little kids of the South East extraction had been brainwashed by Kanu and his group into believing that they had been out to defend and defend the area. To this finish, CSEPNND

 appealed to them to instantly pull out now that it has smoked IPOB out to declare what it truly is.

The Coalition of South East Professionals Community in Nigeria and Diaspora,in an announcement, Monday, signed by its Nationwide President, Prof. Madumere Chika and Nationwide Secretary, Mazi Anayo Uchemba, explicit tasked the area’s governors, Ohaneze Ndigbo and different stakeholders to instantly interact the folks on advocacy forward of the ballot.

Noting that IPOB’s place had actually confirmed its earlier assertion that it’s being bankrolled by a sure politicians from the South to scuttle Igbo’s quest for presidency in 2023, the group requested folks of the area to be vigilant, agency and decisive on what they actually need and never succumb to the antics of Nnamdi Kanu and his likes.

“The poorly circulated press launch by a terrorist group below Indigenous Folks of Biafra, IPOB, printed in some few  nationwide papers yesterday, expressing its refusal to assist the agitation for Igbo presidency come 2023,  has vindicated our stand  that IPOB and its fugitive chief, Nnamdi Kanu,are anti-Igbo working with some enemies of Igbo nation to thwart its probability to provide the subsequent president of Nigeria,” it stated.

It questioned why IPOB which claimed to be working for the curiosity of the South East area could be in opposition to what the folks of South East extraction have since been trying ahead to.

The group stated:”Naturally, any group working for development of its folks needs to be on the forefront of points that may see to the realisation of their yearnings and aspirations.

Mockingly, this isn’t the case right here with IPOB! So one could be fast to ask what actually is IPOB in search of? We imagine strongly that no cheap group ought to kick in opposition to the progress of its personal folks as IPOB is at present doing.”

“We had earlier alerted our folks that determined politicians feeling threatened of the probabilities of Igbo to provide the president in 2023 had been sponsoring Nnamdi Kanu, chief of outlawed Indigenous Folks of Biafra,IPOB,to scuttle the bid.

At this level that nearly each Nigerian is clamoring for Igbo presidency, one of the best factor for IPOB is to embrace the transfer and work to its realisation if truly it’s out to work for the betterment Igbo nation. “

CSEPNND, whereas insisting that determined politicians had been sponsoring Nnamdi Kanu to thwart Igbo presidency in 2023, insisted that it was time for the folks to denounce IPOB and its inglorious actions solely.

“We’re vindicated by this unpatriotic assertion by IPOB, and we name on all Ndigbo across the World to distance themselves from Kanu and his terrorist group,” it added.

The group which insisted that some determined politicians from the southern area had been behind IPOB’s motion, stated “having realized that the final temper within the nation now’s for Igbo presidency in 2023,develop into threatened and need to choose an affordable traitor from our area to thwart the bid”, warning that “we should not fall for this.”

“That is why we have now at all times warned folks on the character of Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB, that they’re on a self- serving mission and never working for an Igbo agenda,” it added.

The Igbo professionals defined why these it described as determined politicians had been utilizing IPOB to feather their nest thus:” Their intention is to painting the Igbos as  enemies of Nigeria who don’t deserve the presidency. The easy logic is you could’t be preventing for the presidency of a rustic you don’t imagine in. That is the evil agenda these politicians try to promote to Nigerians utilizing our personal very son. We must not ever permit this evil plot to succeed. Kanu can not commerce the destinies of Igbos for his personal private consolation. It should be clear that Kanu doesn’t love Ndigbo like he claims. Relatively,he’s our enemy.”

It famous that:”As Igbo processionals, we want to inform all that Kanu is alone in his cessation mission and has no cheap particular person behind him.”

Whereas admitting that the South East area had not had its justifiable share within the one Nigeria mission, the Igbo group stated the pursuit of an inclusive authorities should be channelled via acceptable lawful means.

“Although our individuals are extremely marginalized and deserve the best for agitation, however that should be performed legally and by the suitable folks not a deviant younger man like Nnamdi Kanu who’s out for his egocentric curiosity,” it stated.

Noting that” Igbo deserves the presidency this time round as in accordance with it,they’ve all it takes to provide the subsequent president of Nigeria”,it tasked the folks to push laborious for it via constitutionally acknowledged avenues.

 “We can’t be demanding for president of Nigeria on one hand and however, supporting IPOB and Kanu,being financed by determined politicians to trigger disaffection in our area,” it warned.

“ We imagine in a single united Nigeria the place justice and equity reigns. We’ve got invested a lot within the nation and wouldn’t be celebration to its destruction below any guise. From expertise, cessation or separatist actions have by no means actually solved the issues of countries. Relatively, dialogue and engagements with all events to handle the underlying points have typically yielded optimistic outcomes,” it additional said.
