Erstwhile President Olusegun Obasanjo has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to have a meeting with the leader of the now-outlawed secessionist Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB group, Nnamdi Kanu. Obasanjo advises Buhari.
Obasanjo said this in an interview with The Newsweek in London on Friday, September 15, 2017.
Obasanjo advises Buhari
According to him, he sees nothing wrong in President Buhari meeting with the IPOB leader. He noted that he, Obasanjo, would also like to meet with Kanu and his likes in Nigeria.
Obasanjo said, “I don’t see anything wrong in Buhari meeting with Kanu. I would not object to that. If anything, I would encourage it.
“I would want to meet Kanu myself and talk to people like him, people of his age, [and ask:] ‘What are your worries?’ Not only from the southeast but from all parts of Nigeria,” he said.
This comes after the senior pastor of Champions Royal Assembly, Prophet Joshua Iginla, said that there is a spirit in the leader of the IPOB. Pastor Iginla, during a service, said what is inside Kanu is greater than what anyone could imagine. According to him, Kanu might be a ‘small boy’, but he is bigger than what you see physically.
He said, “What I saw last month, is different from what I am seeing now. A puppy is now developing the features of wild animals. This prophetic word is going to be negative but it is very important that I say it. Take the Biafra agitation serious. Dialogue now. I am not an Igbo man, but I am telling you what I was shown in the spirit. I am seeing great people, important people of this nation, coming together, saying it’s time for dialogue, but it’s too late. This is not a cry of a baby, it is a cry of an adult. Dialogue now.
