Peter Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, has said separatist leader, Nnamdi Kanu and Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Igboho, are more popular than all Nigerian politicians.
Obi, who was the vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019, said Nigerians’ lack of hope has made Igboho and Kanu more popular than politicians in the South-west and South-east.
Speaking at a recent event tagged: ‘National Security Challenge: Youths neglect?’ in Abuja, the former governor stressed that Nigerians now have what gives them hope.
“In the South-West, Sunday Igboho is far more popular than all the politicians put together,” he said.
“In the South-East, Nnamdi Kanu is far more popular than all the politicians put together.
“Because when you talk about separation and everything, you have driven people to the point where they have what drives the economy and what drives people to live in a country is hope.”
