Northern elder makes prediction about Obi and Biafra agiation

The National Director of Publicity and Advocacy of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Hakeem Baba-Ahmed has said Peter Obi’s presidency in 2023 “could end the Biafran cause”.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that writing in his weekly column, Baba-Ahmed said the “most formidable foe” of the Labour Party presidential candidate is “the violence in the East”.

The elder statement also expressed his belief that it would be difficult for the former Anambra State governor to emerge victorious in next month’s poll, considering he is battling “titans” – Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar.

Baba-Ahmed wrote: “Peter Obi’s Labour Party would have made a greater impact if he had earlier charted a different course as a different politician and created greater distance from the titans that he is fighting today.

“His hard-core fanatical followers believe more in miracles than in the routine trudging, hustling, and negotiating for votes.

“His primary constituency is wrought with multiple cross-cutting political interests, and he is unable to resolve a primary contradiction: his presidency could end the Biafran cause, wiping out a lot of the beneficiaries of an idea whose essence can be found in every inch of Nigeria.”
