A faction of the Oodua People’s , known as New Era, has described leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, as a ‘loquacious coward’ who after fleeing now wants to bring mayhem into the country.

The group said this in reaction to the threat by the IPOB leader to attack Southwesterner if Igbos living in their region were killed in any post-election violence.

However, Comrade Adesina Akinpelu, National Public Relations Officer (PRO) of New Era OPC, in a press release made available to journalists in Ibadan yesterday, said: “Nnamdi Kanu is nothing but a ‘loquacious coward’ who wants to take advantage of every situation to advance his narrow-minded interest.

“If not for the purpose of setting the record straight; OPC would not have descended so low to react to Kanu’s careless postulations.

“This is a guy who brainwashed many young Igbo youths into joining IPOB and left them to be killed by soldiers. This coward who fled the country like a thief in the night is now threatening to attack land.

“We urge him to carry out the threat. What soldiers did to him and his brainwashed members will be a ‘child play’ compare to what we would do to them.”

Notwithstanding his reaction to Kanu’s threat, Akinpelu said his group noted the reported attacks on people of Igbo tribe living in Lagos State during the and National Assembly elections.

He called for the immediate arrest of those who perpetrated the attacks.

He said: “We members of Oodua People’s Congress, New Era, condemn in its totality the recent attack on Igbo people in Lagos State over their decision to cast their votes to those they want.

“How can any sensible person attack fellow human being just because he or she has a preferred candidate to for? Every Nigerian has the right to for any candidate he or she wants. Those miscreants who attacked and prevented law abiding Igbo people from voting in Lagos State and their sponsors must be fished out and made to pay for their crimes.”

Akinpelu added that the former OPC members who took part in the attack have deviated from what OPC stands for and so they must be made to pay for their crimes as they are bad eggs.

“These are the bad eggs who are no longer members of the OPC. These are the miscreants that we are talking about. We organised an election stakeholders meeting before the election in Ibadan and we raised the alarm that some former OPC members were trying compromise the integrity of the Congress by becoming attack dogs to a high profile politician in Lagos State,” he explained.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed

    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

WASSCE: No going back on suspension of WAEC exam yet – Nigerian govt

Published

on

By

Amidst criticisms by many Nigerians and an opposition leader, the Nigerian government has defended its decision not to allow students in the country take part in this year’s West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

NAIJASURF reported the government’s decision last week amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

The education minister, Adamu Adamu, explained the government’s decision last week. He said the government was concerned about the spread of COVID-19 should it allow the students congregate for the examinations, organised by the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

The stance was criticised by opposition leader Atiku Abubakar and the House of Representatives with the lawmakers urging the government to rescind the decision.

However, the federal government reiterated its stance on Wednesday but said it was meeting stakeholders on the matter.

“We are still meeting with parents over the decision of the ministry,” the minister of state for education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, told journalists after Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council meeting.

“What the minister (Mr Adamu) said reflects the true position of the ministry; we are not confident yet that everywhere is safe. The numbers from the NCDC are still alarming and we have put this before parents and all the stakeholders in the education ecosystem, we are still meeting with them. In fact, there’s a stakeholders’ meeting convened for Monday.

“WAEC on its own part is also negotiating with other West African countries to look at possible shift in date. Once they are through with that meeting and hopefully when we are through with the consultation with stakeholders, if there’s any change in the ministry’s position, we will communicate.

“But as it stands, the position of the Honourable Minister, as communicated to you last week, remains the position of the ministry until further evidence to the contrary or further agreements that may alter those arise,” Mr Nwajiuba said.
