The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Saturday, alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari is more interested in the well being of his cattle in Daura, Katsina State than the welfare of Nigerians, according to a Daily Post report.
This was as the pro-Biafra group accused him of sidelining the South East since he assumed office last year.
IPOB alleged that apart from foreign countries which Buhari had visited for about 30 times since he became president in 2015 and Daura or other northern states, he had not paid any visit to Igboland.
The group stated this following Buhari’s recent comment to Corps members from South East, saying they should educate those agitating for Biafra to forget it.
But IPOB in a statement issued by its spokespersons, Mr Emma Nmezu and Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya said, the President pays more attention to his animals in his hometown than humans he governs.
The statement reads in part, “The first question is, why can’t Buhari come to Biafra land to lecture Biafrans on unity rather than mouthing it every time he visits his cow ranch in Daura or some place in Northern Nigeria?
“Is Northern Nigeria the only place that a president travels to? Can anyone point to a single visit that Buhari has made to Biafraland from May 29, 2015 till date?
“Buhari has more regards and affection for his cows than the average Biafran because he finds time to visit animals rather than those he claim to be his fellow citizens…
“Buhari has made 30 foreign trips as at the end of May 2016 as well as countless trips to the Northern part of Nigeria including Boko Haram controlled regions but he has not set his feet on Biafran soil since he was sworn in on May 29.”
