Aisha Yesufu, a Nigerian socio-political activist on Wednesday, said the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is “wasteing its goodwill on sit-at-home directives” .
To “bring the South East together politically,” Yesufu advised IPOB to consider forming an alliance with a political party other than the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“An APGA/IPOB alliance can bring the South East together politically. Instead of IPOB wasting it’s goodwill on giving sit at home orders they can make it nominate and vote credible candidates “order”. Political power is everything! Without it you are a pawn to be treated anyhow.
“With that power you can negotiate with any party wanting to win Presidential elections and give the terms for your alliance. Any party interested in winning the region must be ready to meet your terms. That way no party takes the region for granted as belonging to one party,” Yesufu’s tweet reads in part.
IPOB’s sit-at-home instructions, according to BEST NEWS NETWORK, are an exercise the controversial organisation is observing due to the continued imprisonment of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, by Nigerian authorities.
Businesses and transportation in the southeast have been hampered as a result of the directives. Despite IPOB’s withdrawal of its demand for a boycott of Anambra State’s governorship elections on November 6, only approximately a tenth of the 2.5 million registered voters cast ballots.
