A former New Media Director of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Deji Adeyanju, says the resurgence of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), may not be unconnected to 2019 elections in Nigeria.
Africa News 24 reports that the Pro-Biafra activist, who was last seen in September 2017 when military men invaded his residence in Afaraukwu in Abia State, was seen praying in Jerusalem on Friday.
Reacting to Kanu’s resurgence in a series of tweets on Friday, the former PDP New Media Director said the greatest weakness of Kanu was his love for money.
Adeyanju alleged that the IPOB leader may be broke, adding that Kanu needed “to cash out majorly in this election period.”
His words: “I hear Nnamdi Kanu is back again, I guess he wants to play a role in the 2019 elections.
“My advice to him is simple: Don’t mess it up again this time around. He had a fantastic opportunity the last time and messed it up by calling on people to boycott Anambra polls.
“If he comes again with his no election in Igbo land then we all know who he is working for.
“The guy’s greatest weakness is his love for money. Ask any of the South East governors, they will confirm this. The guy loves money too much. Hope he proves many of us wrong this time.
“The guy may be broke and needs to cash out majorly in this election period. One thing is very clear, Igbos have a major stake in this election.
“I will not spare anyone who works against the possibility of an Igbo Vice President in 2019 and potential 2023 Presidency.
“I love my brother Nnamdi Kanu very much and like I have always said, I wish him the best at all times. I hope and pray he makes the right decision this time.
“I always mean well even if I come across as though I don’t. Welcome back bro,” he tweeted.
