“Fulani caliphate have concluded plan to handover Presidency to Atiku on February 2022 in a bid disrupt Nigeria disintegration”
Simon Ekpa, a self-styled disciple of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has claimed that some persons have concluded plans to hand over power to former Vice-President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in February 2022.
Ekpa who is a Finnish citizen and politician of Nigerian descent made the claim on Twitter on Saturday.
The Daily Vendor Newspaper recalled that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 presidential election, when he picked the former governor of Anambra state, Mr Peter Obi as running mate.
Atiku is expected to throw his hat into the ring again, in respect of the 2023 election, even as some Nigerians are clamoring for a president of Igbo descent.
The Atiku plan is part of permutations for the 2023 Presidential election, according to Ekpa, who has been residing in Finland for more than a decade.
“Fulani caliphate have concluded plan to hand over Presidency to Atiku on February 2022 in a bid disrupt Nigeria disintegration. We must now step up our agitation for Biafra so that by then or before then, we are almost home,” Ekpa wrote.
One wonders if this is a revelation of what is to come or just a propaganda. Ekpa is well-known disciple of Nnamdi Kanu, the now-detained leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). IPOB is a controversial organization agitating for the breakup of Nigeria and creation of a new nation, to be called Biafra. The group and its proponents are notorious for their propaganda.
The Nigeria Presidential election will however be held on 18 February 2023 to elect a new President and Vice President. Senate and House of Representatives election holds on the same day. The winners of the election will be inaugurated on May 29, 2023.
