IPOB: Soludo, Uba afraid to condemn group during debate, attack one another

APGA guber candidate Charles Soludo has explained how he will approach IPOB unrest, and he hit his APC rival Andy Uba who has no idea yet.

But in simple statements, both of them parried the question.

Soludo said he would have a dialogue with the leadership of the IPOB to know what they are agitating for.

“I am a pan Africanist and a pan Nigerian. However, I am on record to have also said the IPOB deserves to be heard,” he said during a debate AriseTV organized for the candidates of the Nov 6 guber election.

“For me, we need to have a dialogue, bring everybody to the table and discuss those specific issues that are the agitations and come out with an alternative view, and my alternative view is prosperity in Anambra and prosperity for Southeast.”

Governors across the southeast agreed on Sep 16, 2017 to proscribe IPOB because of its violence.

And they made provision for the group to air its grievances.

In the communique issued that day when the governors met, grievances, agitations and complaints on national issues were called to be submitted by groups to a committee comprising Ohaneze, governors, and federal lawmakers.

Soludo who claimed he knows what IPOB is agitating and dialogue is the solution shouldn’t have forgotten the southeast governors efforts.

But he was quick to hammer Uba who pretended he didn’t know.

“You know what they are agitating for. You are either for or against,’ the former governor of the CBN said.

Even the alternative Soludo believes he can convince the secessionist group to buy—a prosperous Anambra and southeast within Nigeria– is not sellable to them.

IPOB has insisted on getting Biafra Republic, and will not be part of  a country it claims is being governed by Fulani.
