Kinsmen of former President Goodluck Jonathan under the aegis of Ogbia Brotherhood Youth Council on Tuesday warned the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra , Nnamdi Kanu, to desist from attacking on the ex -President .
It was reported that the IPOB leader had described Jonathan as weak and incompetent.
“ I love Yar ’ Adua and Shehu Shagari, Patience Jonathan would have made a better President than Goodluck, ” Kanu had said .
But the National President of the OBYC , Dr . Laguo Gilbert , in a statement , described Kanu’ s comments as most unfortunate and advised members of the public to disregard them .
Gilbert said , “ Such radical statements remain one of the reasons the IPOB agitation lacks its required substance.
“ The OBYC , however , advises Kanu to learn from the mistakes made by the group in the past and its predecessor , as this will be necessary to implement its vision . ”
While maintaining that bringing Jonathan into Biafra issues in such a manner would not help or give credence to its deep-rooted rancour , the group warned Kanu “ to stop linking a honourable man like Jonathan with his agitation which is lacking vision and direction . ”
“ Bringing former President Jonathan into its issues in such a disrespectful manner will neither help nor give credence to its rancour. The OBYC , therefore , warns Nnamdi Kanu to desist forthwith from linking a man of honour like Jonathan with his visionless agitation . ”
