There are over 30 other separatist organisations in the South-East zone – Abaribe

The Senator representing Abia-South Senatorial District and the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, has said that there are more than 30 other separatist organisations in the South-East zone aside from the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), and the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, (MASSOB).

The Senator made this known while speaking on Channels Television on Tuesday he said that “One of the biggest problems that the media also has is that they tag everything IPOB in the South-East. You won’t believe that there are more than 30 different separatist organisations – IPOB, MASSOB, there are so many and each one of them comes back to the same thing.”

Abaribe also lamented that the ruling party the All Progressive Congress has ”an aversion to dialogue”

He said: “the government of the APC has an aversion to dialogue” and must embrace such to quell growing agitations for fairness and justice to the Igbo people.

Abaribe speaking on the Igbo presidency come 2023 said that Nigeria was ripe for an Igbo President and that the APC is not set up to manage Nigeria properly but his party the PDP is.

He went on to speak about how the Igbo have lived in Nigeria peacefully.

Abaribe said: “The man who the shoe pinches knows where it hurts. The Igbo are the people in Nigeria who make conscious efforts of settling anywhere else without hurting their host.

“At any point, you have never heard that they kill and maim their host so they know how to aggregate everybody’s feelings — their customs, their laws, their norms, everything. And so, because of that we feel that the Igbo will understand you, will even have the time for you. Today, we don’t feel that this government has time for anybody.”

Abaribe said that an Igbo President “is ripe in 2023” adding: “We think that the party called APC is not set up to manage Nigeria properly and so it has to be our own party (PDP) that has been able to carry everybody along. Those of us Igbo within our party knowing that we have to play politics, talk to people, they have to be able to see your own point of view and buy into your vision are doing the consultations now.”
