Enyinnaya Harcourt Abaribe is a Nigerian politician who was elected to the Abia-South Senatorial District of Abia State in the Senate of Nigeria in April 2007. He is a member of the major opposition People's Democratic Party, PDP in the Nigerian senate, and currently the Minority leader in the senate. He is also an ardent supporter of Maazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
However, his consistent support for Nnamdi Kanu has gained him a lot of oppositions in recent times. To this reason, this article tend to present reasons why he should drop his support for Maazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is bent on dismembering the country.
TO AVOID GETTING HIMSELF INTO A LEGAL TROUBLE
Few days ago, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina, launched an attack on the Senate Minority Leader. He stated that Senator Abaribe should be in prison for supporting someone bent on dismembering Nigeria. At this juncture, it is obvious that Senator Abaribe is risking himself into a legal trouble if he continues to support Nnamdi Kanu.
Moreover, President Buhari had earlier stated that the federal government is vigorously pursuing financiers of Secessionist leaders, including one identified as a serving member of the National Assembly. So, if senator Abaribe doesn't withdraw his support for Nnamdi Kanu, he may be suspected as the 'one member' of the National Assembly that is financing Nnamdi Kanu, consequently leading him into a legal trouble.
TO AVOID RISKING HIS POLITICAL CAREER
Senator Abaribe may be risking his political career in Nigeria if he continues to support Nnamdi Kanu. Senator Abaribe may start developing little differences with political elites in the country, who may frustrate him in his political career for supporting a man that is bent on dismembering the country. This will surely have a negative impact in his political career in the country. So, Senator Abaribe has to disassociate himself from supporting Nnamdi Kanu to avoid risking his political career.
