IPOB Is Like A Dot In A Circle, Has Nowhere To Go – PMB

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) has described the Indigenous People of Biafra clamouring for secession as a dot in a circle that has nowhere to go.

The President said this in an interview with Arise TV broadcast on Thursday.

He said, “That IPOB is just like a dot in a circle. Even if they want to exit, they will have no access to anywhere.

“And the way they are spread all over the country, having businesses and properties, I don’t think IPOB knows what they are talking about.

“In any case, we say we’ll talk to them in the language that they understand. We’ll organise the police and the military to pursue them.”
Buhari also said that he has been assured by “the elderly people” and “the youths” from the South-South part of the country that their region has no intention of seceding.

He said IPOB will not have “access to anywhere” even if they eventually secede from the country.

The President then reiterated his statement that IPOB members will be treated in the “language that they understand”.

“I was encouraged by what I heard, nobody told me. Two statements from the south-south. One by the elderly people, they said this time around there would be no (secession). And again the youth made the same statement; such encouragement,” Buhari said.

IPOB has been agitating for the secession of the South-East.

  1. I think what the president said is true. There business interest is found everywhere in Nigeria and it will be difficult to compress them just like that. I have been saying it that what Nigeria need is true federalism. What ever trouble that comes out for not adopting true federalism is on the head of those who are against it. I am aware that the president supported restructuring during his campaign for the first tenure but I am surprised that uptil today he is yet to come out full time to send an executive bill on full implementation.
