The last has not been heard of the blistering open letter former President Olusegun Obasanjo wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB has thrown its weight behind Obasanjo and his viral letter.

Obasanjo, in an open letter to President Buhari, had advised him to retire peacefully to avoid being disgraced in the 2019 presidential election.

The letter has elicited praise and condemnation for the former president, but IPOB while reacting to it praised Obasanjo for his courage, saying that the same has been the stand of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

In a statement by the spokesman for IPOB, Emma Powerful, which was made available to Bounce News, the group condemned the endorsement of President Buhari by members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the south-east.

The group spoke further that "the statement credited to the former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was carefully timed to deliver a devastating blow to the scavenging class of political prostitutes in Igboland that shamelessly went to hawk their wares in Abuja a few days ago".

The group described as shameless the endorsement of Buhari for 2019 by South East APC, referring to them as a bunch of undignified individuals under the banner of Igbo leaders, saying that the action has portrayed them as selfish leaders.
