The self-acclaimed disciple of the embattled Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Simon Ekpa, has said Nigeria was never created to move forward.
The IPOB member stated this in a post on his Facebook page.
Reacting to a letter he claimed to have received from the Institute of Management Consultants , Nigeria, nominating him for a fellowship, Simon Ekpa vowed to “put everything I have to the disintegration of Nigeria”
The Biafra activist, who represented Nigeria at the 2003 African Junior Athletics Championships, disclosed that he would return the medal he won for the country.
Ekpa wrote, “I reject your nomination publicly, this is the second time the IMC-Nigeria is nominating me for whatever reason. I am not interested in your nomination, I am not interested in your award, I am not interested in anything that will move Nigeria forward because Nigeria is not structured nor created to move forward, so anybody trying to move Nigeria forward is already a failure.
“Let me give you a brief brake down on these failures: Awolowo, Zik, Ahmedu Bello, Abiola, Obasanjo, Jonathan, and every other person that have held any political position in Nigeria from 1960 to 2021 has all failed because they didn’t realise that Nigeria was never created to move forward.
“I am now putting everything I have to the disintegration of Nigeria and restoration of Biafra as that is the only way to move forward, anything outside this, don’t bring my name.
“Finally, I will be returning every award given to me in Nigeria by Nigeria state or organisation within Nigeria acting in the capacity of representing Nigeria, including medal given to me by Nigeria will be returned to the Ministry of Sports Abuja in the nearest future.
“I am Simon Ekpa, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s Disciple on Biafra Restoration.”
