"IPOB Welcomed Me When I Visited US Recently" - Chris Ngige Reveals Why He Wasn't Attacked 1

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige has revealed that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its Leader, Nnamdi Kanu cannot attack or beat him up outside Nigeria.

IPOB members have threatened to attack any politicians of the South-East geopolitical zone if they were sighted anywhere outside the country.

Ngige who was reacting to their threat, revealed that he was welcomed by IPOB when he visited the United States of America recently.

He said the secessionists would not do him any harm, because he protected them and their interests when he was the Governor of Anambra State. 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 former governor also urged the Igbo people to stop claiming they are being marginalized. He advised them to participate during the electoral process. Ngige said:

“The Igbo should stop shouting marginalization. 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.

“We must support him and associate with the APC. Nobody will give you the president of Nigeria in your bedroom.”
