A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, Charles Idahosa, has said President Muhammadu Buhari delayed in dealing with several issues especially Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The Nation reports that Idahosa said current agitations across the country and the call for restructuring were diversionary.
He also insisted that Kanu was being sponsored by individuals, as it was absurd for him to have enough money, to buy equipment for radio stations.
He said: “Buhari missed it immediately he won and the whole world was giving him the accolade. The money stolen during the PDP time was so much.
“The money in the hands of individual is so much and you do not expect them to just fold their hands at the rate President Muhammadu Buhari is going, looking at his antecedents, looking at his records, he wants to set up special court to be trying corruption.
“What you are seeing right now is corruption fighting back, nothing more, nothing less. It just that we are a country of very many unserious people. This thing could have been tackled in a way that nobody would even know that such a thing happened.
“We made Nnamdi Kanu important. A 36 years old boy who never saw the Civil War. I saw war. I know what war is and I am sure none of you here saw war.
“When you see war, mother will deny her child, father will be running to different direction while the children will be running to different direction.
“You people do not know what is called war. Children like Kanu and his cohorts are talking rubbish because people are pumping money to them, even people that are supposed to be enlightened.
“All these agitations here and there, they are being sponsored and stage managed to distract the APC federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari of getting to where he wants to get Nigeria to.”
