Simon Ekpa, Once touted as the next IPOB leader or meant to lead in place, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu while in incarceration, who is also an ex-Nigerian International athlete has said he would be denouncing his Nigeria citizenship and has vowed to return the medal he won for Nigeria at the 2003 African Junior Athletics Championships.

He made this known in a Facebook post on Sunday, adding that leaders of the country have failed the country woefully for years after years. Ekpa said his action is in with his allegiance to the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra. He also vowed to “put everything I have to the disintegration of Nigeria”.

The Biafra agitator said this while reacting to a letter he claimed he received from the Institute of Management Consultants, Nigeria, nominating him for a fellowship.

Ekpa posted,

“I reject your nomination publicly, this is the second time the IMC-Nigeria is nominating me for whatever reason. I am not interested in your nomination, I am not interested in your award, I am not interested in anything that will move Nigeria forward because Nigeria is not structured nor created to move forward, so anybody trying to move Nigeria forward is already a failure.
“Let me give you a brief brake down on these failures: Awolowo, Zik, Ahmedu Bello, Abiola, Obasanjo, Jonathan, and every other person that have held any political position in Nigeria from 1960 to 2021 has all failed because they didn’t realise that Nigeria was never created to move forward.

“I am now putting everything I have to the disintegration of Nigeria and restoration of Biafra as that is the only way to move forward, anything outside this, don’t bring my name.
“Finally, I will be returning every award given to me in Nigeria by Nigeria state or organisation within Nigeria acting in the capacity of representing Nigeria, including medal given to me by Nigeria will be returned to the Ministry of Sports Abuja in the nearest future.
“I am Simon Ekpa, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s Disciple on Biafra Restoration.”
