IPOB Cannot Attack Me- Ngige

– Dr.Chris Ngige said that IPOB members cannot attack him anytime he travels out of the country

– IPOB was registered by the late President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Dr Dozie Ikedife

– They knew I fed and protected them

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has said that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) cannot attack him outside Nigeria.

Ngige made this statement while speaking in Obosi, Anambra State, in response to reports that IPOB members had threatened to attack South East politicians, if they were seen anywhere outside the country.

The minister said that IPOB would not harm him because he protected them and their interests when he was Anambra State Governor.

Ngige said: “IPOB was registered by the late President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Dr Dozie Ikedife and other Igbo as a non-violent group.

“What is going on now in the group is not part of the work plan . I visited the United States of America recently, and I was welcomed by IPOB members.

“They knew I fed and protected them when I was in office as governor. I have said it several times that Biafra cannot be achieved the IPOB way.

“The Igbo should stop shouting marginalisation. They should stand up and assert themselves to be counted. Nigeria belongs to all of us.

“Equity favours the Igbo to produce the next president of the country, but they must work hard and position themselves for it.

“We should stop political sentiments. Politicians don’t give power based on sentiment and emotion. President Muhammadu Buhari has said he is favourable to an Igbo president and We must support him and associate with the APC.
