Igboho, Nnamdi Kanu More Popular Than All Southern Politicians – Peter Obi (Video)
Former Anambra State Governor and 2019 Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi has taken a swipe at southern politicians.
This is as he asserted that no southern politician is as popular as Chief Sunday Adeyemo more popularly known as Sunday Igboho and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
Obi made his mind known while delivering a lecture on national scurity recently.
In supporting his argument, the former Anambra State Governor while blaming the issue on poor leadership was of the opinion that people have been frustrated and only find rays of hope in such individuals.
He said the pro-secession agitators are now seen as symbols of hope by many people, hence the growing attraction to them.
“In the South West, Sunday Igboho is far more popular than all the politicians put together”
“In the South East, Nnamdi Kanu is far more popular than all the politicians put together”
“Because when you talk about separation and everything, you have driven people to the point where they have, what drives the economy and what drives people to live in a country is hope,” Obi said.

Ezenwoko’s Blog reports that both men highlighted by Obi in his submission are currently in the custody of security operatives.
Igboho on his part, is being held in Benin Republic while the government battles to repartriate him to Nigeria while IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu is in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Meanwhile, the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice has on behalf of the federal government, filed a seven-count amended charge against the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Ezenwoko’s Blog understands the charges are based on treasonable felony and acts of terrorism.
The amended charges against the embattled IPOB leader come a few days before the re-commencement of Kanu’s trial on Thursday before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja.
