Ex-Power Minister, Nebo, Slams IPOB’s Violent Methods

Former minister for Power Prof. Chinedu Nebo

A former Minister of Power, Prof Chinedu Nebo, has attributed the agitation for the creation of Biafran nation out of Nigeria to the unfair treatment of the Ndigbo in the country.

However, he said while the agitation, spearheaded by the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra was justified, the method by which the group was going about the agitation was condemnable.

Nebo, who spoke at the inauguration of new executive members of the Correspondents’ Chapel, Nigeria Union of Journalists, Enugu State Council in Enugu, on Saturday, also knocked South-East governors, who he accused of betraying the interest of the region for personal political gains.

He argued that if justice must be done, the next President of Nigeria in 2023 ought to be an Igbo.

He, however, said South-East governors might not allow suchbecause some of them were positioning to be vice-presidential candidates.

The former Vice-Chancellor, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, who was the guest speaker at the event,  said it was clear that the ruling All Progressives Congress would zone the presidency to the South.

“The Peoples Democratic Party is still struggling on the zoning of presidency, but with many of our governors in the South-East, who are here to serve themselves and not the people, and they are looking for the positions of vice presidential candidate, the PDP may actually end up zoning to the North so that one of them will become a vice-presidential candidate.
