An Igbo leader and former national chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Maxi Okwu, has described President Muhammadu Buhari and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as having something in common. Okwu, a social and political analyst, also described Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the ‘political grand-master of Nigerian politics’. According to Okwu, President Buhari and Kanu know how to excite their supporters and make them go wild. “Both PMB and Nnamdi Kanu have one common denominator. They excite their supporters with a frenzy of messianic dimensions,” he said in a post on social media.

The same goes for Nnamdi among Ndigbo youths. “I do not see an equivalent among the Yoruba. Asiwaju Capo Ahmed Bola Tinubu does not work the crowds. He is a master of mafiosi politics. In fact I cede to him the title of the political grandmaster in Naija for now,” he said. Okwu lamented that some zones in the country are currently suffering because they lack leaders with such unifying and influential factors. For example, he said: “Since Tarka the Tiv seem to have lost their soul. It’s all the more pathetic when his acolytes like aging Paul Unongo now run errands for the forces JS fought against in the first republic. “There is today no Rewane equivalent among the Ishekiri,” he added. Okwu said former Governor James Onanife Ibori of Delta would have been a rallying point among the Urhobo people of the country, but for his prison term which he served in the United Kingdom. “There is no new Kenule Saro Wiwa among the Ogoni. The Ijaws of the Niger Delta have a band of ‘Generals’ who act like the warlords of Afghanistan or Libya.
