The Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has described Nnamdi Kanu as a young man looking for relevance.
The Ohaneze Ndi-Igbo has also condemned the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for calling for the boycott.
Speaking to Daily Trust, Okorocha said Kanu lacks the ability and influence to lead the Igbo nation to war.
The Imo state Governor also said all those calling for an independent nation of Biafra are airing their frustration.
Nnamdi Kanu recently accused former President Goodluck Jonathan of favouring the North over the South, adding that he was a weak President.
