|Dozie Ikedife And Muhammadu Buhari|
Referring to the baseless statements credited to the former President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr. Dozie Ikedife in an interview granted to Sun Newspapers, saying that contrary to the assumption that Nnamdi Kanu is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, he is just the Director of Radio Biafra and not the leader of IPOB, to say the least is completely absurd, baseless and unfounded.
For clarity purposes, the said leadership of the Supreme Council of Elders of the Indigenous People of Biafra(SIPOB) which was hitherto established to pursue the liberation of the Biafran people was initiated and constituted by Nnamdi Kanu until these rogue and unworthy elements started deviating from the ideology, principles and core values which the Council was set-up to achieve to venture and pursue for their selfish interests in the Nigerian government at the detriment of Biafrans they pretend to be fighting for their freedom.

These uncanny elders like Dr. Ikedife, completely abandoned the liberation struggle and started venturing for their vested interests into the Nigerian political stream, wining and dining with ungodly Nigerian politicians who does not have the interest of the masses at heart but only for their personal gains.
Seeing the unholy directions of these shameless and compromised elders, Kanu having vehemently opposed to their manner of approach towards the liberation struggle, retracted and dissociated himself from these insincere and selfish elders who then resorted to maligning/defaming his name to discredit his efforts and achievements for the Biafran struggle.
Dr. Ikedife and his likes never meant well for the people of Biafra, they see the Biafran struggle as a means of hand twisting or blackmailing the Federal government. They only feigns support for the Biafran struggle but in sincerity they only look up to curry favour and other monetary gains from the Nigeriangovernment. It is on record that Dr. Ikedife, shortly after the declaration of Muhammadu Buhari in May 2015, as the President-elect, led a delegation of some similar shameless Igbo leaders to beg and appeal to Buhari to give Ndigbo a place in his incoming administration even though he did not gather massive votes from them.
Ikedife is a well known APC-government apologist who receives bribe to sellout gullible people who were been deluded to think that he meant well for them.
Contrary to his claims, how can Nnamdi Kanu usurp the leadership of IPOB he had established for the Biafran project? The last time I checked, Kanu was endorsed by Biafrans and also at the UN Assembly for Indigenous Peoples as their leader.
That Kanu has different views, ideology or approach to the Biafran struggle, does not warrant this campaign of calumny treatment from Ikedife and his 'unserious' group.
Since they have been in court with the Federal government what recommendations or achievements have they garnered so far. How does Ikedife and Co hope to get justice from the court of a country he claims to want to break away from, especially in this present regime where justice and the rule of law has been greatly undermined and trampled upon. I just perceive that they are in for a wild goose chase which yields no positive result or desired goal.

If Nnamdi Kanu had chosen to mingle with the Nigerian political class by the direction of Ikedife and his co-travelers, the Biafran struggle would not have skyrocketed to this level of international recognition and significance. Since Ikedife claimed to be fighting for the freedom of his people, how many people have he been able to unite from the Eastern region for the common course of the Biafrans.
It is my inner most view that anyone who has lost the touch of his people owing to their selfish ambitions will try to malign or dent the image of those with the followership of the people just to score cheap political points. Through the dispositions and actions of both Ikedife and Kanu, Biafrans know who their true and passionate leader is and there is absolutely no point dragging over it as people choose their leaders and not the other way out.
Chief Ikedife and his ilks in the so-called supreme council of elders should leave IPOB and its leaders alone and continue mingling with the Nigerian politicians for political gains. Biafrans are not oblivious of those who has their real interests at heart.
We reject in totat everything that has to do with Ikedife, because they represent everything we are fighting against.
