Ojukwu Jr. disowns IPOB, MASSOB, insists father met Buhari | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Son of late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Emeka Ojukwu Jr. yesterday disowned Biafra agitators, vindicating President Muhammadu Buhari on his celebrated discussions with his late father on the Unity and indivisibility of the Nigerian Nation.

Ojukwu who spoke in a release to reporters in Awka, Anambra State, noted that contrary to news around the internet by Biafra agitators that he had denied that his father met President Buhari, he never granted any media interview or posted any massage on social media that Buhari was wrong about his discussions with the late father.

This reaction is coming on the heels of stories making the rounds in the social media that he; Ojukwu Jr. replied Buhari’s statements as untrue which members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have been describing as lies, demanding proof of the meeting with the late Ikemba of Nnewi with Mr. President.

Continuing Ojukwu Jr. noted that his late father actually held the said meeting with Buhari before his demise, adding that all that Buhari said in his Nationwide Broadcast were true.

He said, “It has been brought to my attention that there is an article making the rounds on social media attributed to me refuting the remarks of Mr. President concerning his relationship and discussions with my late father.
“Let me state the following categorically; firstly, that I made no such comments to anybody, and secondly that I am aware that His Excellency’s comments were indeed factual.
“I have noticed a disturbing trend recently of fake news being attributed to me on social media. I don’t know who is behind it or what their motivation might be but let me assure you that any time I feel the need to comment publicly on any matter, I will not do so via some anonymous email or anything of the like, rather be rest assured that there will be no ambiguity whatsoever as to whether the comments came from me.
“Let me lend my voice to those of the rest of my fellow countrymen and welcome Mr. President back home.”

Ojukwu Jr. urged members of the public to discountenance the stories in the social media or any media platform whatsoever credited to him that he accused Buhari of telling lies, warning that such malicious and damaging publications would not be taken lightly should it be repeated.

He also urged the President not to take such comments seriously as it smacks of gutter and yellow media reportage aimed at overheating the polity.

  1. Which clerification is that are you sure that you are okay, it is only one thing that buhari and ojoukwu discussed

    1. You are among the lost ones. Even when Ojukwu's son came and clarify the issue you still insist on living on lies. How gullible you are and other small boys of your type. It's quite a pity that your type are what the Igbos will look up to tomorrow.

  2. Please can we let the dead rest in peace and the living live in peace? ojukwu and buhari alone did/do not own nigeria exclusively. Their private disussion at daura is of ltlle consequence to present day nigeria. Time and tide have changed.

  3. I wonder why Nigeria politics has gone to the extrem of lying which can cost the life of living soul. The President while in London we were being lied to that is on life Support machine which is not true. We want peace and transparency in this nation to Move forward not lie.

  4. Even if ojukwu met with Buhari,what does it have to do with my fundamental human rights. So if they met, I can no longer decide my future or my life... ILLITERACY is the greatest disease

  5. Who cares about their meeting.....let's discuss our future and forget the past.
