Directors of a Biafran political organisation, Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria (MOBIN), have abandoned the group.
The group has consequently launched a new political mobilisation organisation to give South-Easterners and the Igbo people a credible political front.
The directors who announced the launch of its brand new organisation at the weekend revealed that the founder of MOBIN, Barrister Emeka Emekesiri was autocratic and a poor manager who ultimately failed in his numerous attempts to run a successful organisation to unite Ndị Igbo.
In a press statement signed by their Director General, Comrade Rita Eberechukwu Anigbogu, and made available to Politics Nigeria, the group listed Bilie Human Rights Initiative, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and MOBIN as some of the groups Emekesiri initiated, but could not manage.
Part of the statement read:
‘While members of BHRI preferred loyalty to Engineer Amadi, members of IPOB saw Emeka Emekesiri as an opportunist and chose Nnamdi Kanu as their leader.
The group directors, who resigned in 2021, narrated how the lawyer messed up the organisation and announced that they have moved on by establishing a political education, orientation and mobilisation organisation.
The statement read in part: “Our attention has been drawn to a document circulating online where one Barr Emeka Emekesiri claims that he has sacked the Directors of the Movement of Biafrans In Nigeria (MOBIN).
”One thing to note here is that Emeka is a very bad, in fact, a very terrible leader.
”Emeka Emekesiri floated IPOB, but didn’t have what it takes to run it and organise members. He only knows paperwork so Nnamdi Kanu snatched it from him and started running with that ideology. Clearly, he failed.
”He floated Bilie Human Rights Initiative and again, lacked the capacity to run it. Amadi, who is an engineer, was the one running it and Emeka in his inability, lost Bilie to Amadi because members of Bilie became loyal to Amadi instead of Emeka.
”Now, he has also come up with MOBIN but completely lacked the capacity to organise and run it.
”Members of IPOB became loyal to Nnamdi Kanu because he has the capacity to organise the people, but Emeka lacked it completely.”
