The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has described the naming of the Second Niger Bridge after President Muhammadu Buhari as unacceptable.

IPOB said the second Niger bridge should be named after an illustrious Igbo person and not Buhari

Recall that Southeast governors had agreed to name the bridge after Buhari following the commissioning of the project.

However, IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, said it is shameful that the bridge was named after Buhari because he has no regard for Igbos.

A statement by Powerful reads: “The attention of the global Family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU has been drawn to the shameful naming of the second Niger Bridge after General Muhammadu Buhari by the shameless Igbo politicians.

“The man that the second Niger bridge is named after did not even show up for the opening ceremony because he had no respect or regard for Ndigbo and knows that he does not deserve any accolades in Biafra land.

“The sellout among the South Eastern Governors, particularly APC Governors who are the useless idiots of the caliphate, want the genocidist and a hater of Ndigbo, Muhammadu Buhari to become the face of the Eastern Region as they display the face and name of a terrorist sponsorer at the entry and exit point of South East through the bridge.

“Muhammadu Buhari was among the Nigeria genocidist soldiers who massacred Ndigbo at Asaba, Anambra, Enugu, and in the rest of the Eastern region.

“His government coordinated the influx of Fulani terrorists masquerading as herdsmen who have massacred our people and raped our women.

“Naming the Second Niger Bridge after the murderer Buhari must not be allowed. The bridge must be renamed to a meritorious Igbo name. The Eastern politicians should tell us any project in the North named after an Igbo person. Our leaders should stop being cowards and Fulani Arewa’s political stooges. They are disgracing the culture of Ndigbo, who never bows down to any man but only worship Chukwu Okike Abiama (God Almighty).

“IPOB maintains that the second Niger Bridge must be renamed. If no Biafran is found worthy by the Eastern politicians to name the second Niger bridge, the existing name of Onitsha Head Bridge should be maintained. “
