Former Gov Rochas Says IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu Took Advantage Of Igbos’ Naivety And Anger

Former Imo state governor Senator Rochas Okorocha has described Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, as a smart man who took advantage of the Igbo’s unhappiness and naivety.

Okorocha made the remark during a chat with Arise TV while commenting on IPOB’s secessionist agitation in the Southeast.

Okorocha insisted that most Southeast youths are not secessionists but angry Nigerians railing against the system, making them easy targets for IPOB’s agenda.

“The issue of IPOB is very controversial and they are the agitations of some young men seeking for relevance who even disrespected me during my tenure as a governor; I don’t see them as secessionists.

“They had been told that the rest of the country hates them. Nnamdi Kanu is a smart man who got these people to think as he wanted,” he said.

  1. God bless you for this comment sir, i am igbo but i can categorically tell you that nnamdi kanu is a scam.

    1. I don't think he is a scam but I feel he was taking advantage of the various problems in the country and going about the "self realization" the wrong way.

  2. Rochas zuwunike! Rest already you are sounding like a broken record!

  3. He's absolutely right and they were now behaving like brainwashed zombies

  4. When you're sidelined and denied your right on account of where you come from because of federal character, when other regions are prioritized over you, when locating of infrastructure and amenities are based on "let's deal with them", when youths if a particular region migrate to other regions after graduation because of little or no federal existence in the region, when they agreed not to make only one state have existing and operational wharf neglecting other states with deeper waters knowing it's cheaper to import good from China to Nigeria than from Lagos to another region, etc, you will understand why they youths shortchanged.

    If you believe this is ranting, google OBJ's interview on BBC to learn and understand why the youths feel the way they do.

  5. Absolutely correct. He was able to brain wash an already disgruntled set of people into believing that the rest of the country hates them. This is a people that don't even like themselves.

  6. It pains me when an Igbo man complains of being marginalized or maltreated by other regions.

    This is a country you co owned and a stake holder. If you are been left out in the scheme of things, its because there's no unity among you and because of greed.

    Imagine a person from the region who have the opportunity to help lift others from the region into the lime light and put them in juicy positions decides against it so just because he or she want to be lord and big over the others. You look at the northerners, they do things by cooperation. As far as you are from the region and speaks same language, they will support you in politics, recruit you in the army, police and immigration service. They all also vote with one voice. This is also partly so in the southwest who thinks they can trust a northerner as an ally.

    But when it come to the southeast, everyone is divided and all want to president. During elections, their votes are divided among little entities and also do not give room for other regions to have a partnership that can be trusted with them.

    If the Igbos must take their place in the scheme of things, let them stop the mentality of being segregated, work together, promote their own in one voice, support their own into juicy appointment when the opportunities arises and make the region a center of unity.
