You can’t name 2nd Niger Bridge after Buhari, says IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has rejected the naming of the Second Niger Bridge after President Muhammadu Buhari.

The pro-Biafra agitators in a statement signed by the group’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, IPOB, lambasted South-east those behind the development, saying it was unacceptable, adding that
the bridge should have been named after dederving prominent Igbo figures.

The statement read in part: “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 …want Muhammadu Buhari to become the face of the Eastern Region as they display the face and name of a terrorist sponsor at the entry and exit point of South East through the bridge.
“Naming the Second Niger Bridge after 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.”
