Nigeria Decides 2023: I Will Negotiate with IPOB if elected as president – Atiku

Atiku Abubakar

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar has said what He will do if He is elected as President of Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2023 general elections.

According to Atiku, He will negotiate with the proscribed Igbo group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) which have been designated a terrorist group if elected as president.

He made this known when He appeared on Channels TV’s presidential town hall series on Sunday night. He said:

“We are in a democratic society. There is no one geopolitical zone that can, on its own, achieve political power without crossing the Niger or being in alliance with other geopolitical zones,” the former vice president explained.

He added, “I think this is what they should begin to think. OK, how do they partner with other parts of the country to secure political power to protect their interests? I think these are the way to go as far as the agitation for IPOB is concerned.”

“The IPOB issue in the South-East, as far as I am concerned, is about the realisation of Biafra. Is it possible for Biafra to be realised today? How? By negotiations or by going through another civil war which we cannot afford to?” said the PDP presidential standard-bearer.

“we should be able to negotiate with the agitators from the South-East as far as the issue of Biafra is concerned.”
