Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to negotiate with people of the Southeast over the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Mbaka explained that Nigeria is sinking, hence Buhari should negotiate with the people of the Southeast.
Addressing his members at the Adoration ground, Mbaka said those around the President were telling him lies about the sit-at-home order.
According to Mbaka: “Whatever is affecting Igboland is affecting the whole Nigeria.
“I am pleading with Mr President that there is still time for him to come out from his house, and stop believing in the report that they are giving him. Mr President is being fed with fake reports, mendacious reports.
“Mr President, you know I cannot tell you lies. The people around you have failed you. You might have done one or two good things. But what about the big ship, Nigeria, that is sinking.
“Invisible personnel will announce on social media that nobody should come out, and nobody will come out. No government office will be open. No bank, no market, no shop. Who are the people? These people must be powerful. Listen to them, let there be negotiation, and let us move forward.”
IPOB declared the sit-at-home order to push for the release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
