August 21, 2017 – Nnamdi Kanu Changes Mind, Says Anambra Governorship Election Will Not Hold During Visit To Ekwulobia

IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu said yesterday that no governorship election will hold in Anambra unless the Federal Government of Nigeria fulfill IPOB’s demand for referendum for Biafra.

Kanu who changed his mind days after he allegedly agreed to shelf planned boycott of Anambra governorship election returned to Ekwulobia yesterday to tell his people that no election will hold in Anambra state.

While speaking on behalf of Kanu, IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful said;

“Our mission to Ekwulobia is to sensitize Biafrans to know the reason why it is necessary to boycott Anambra Election and other subsequent elections in Biafranland and to tell the world that election boycott stands.

“We refute the rumors going round now that our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu have withdrawn the order IPOB gave against Anambra gubernatorial election on November 18th 2017. IPOB order of ‘no election’ remain unless Nigerian Government give us date for referendum, we are not calling for war.”

Kanu said the group was not at Ekwulobia to play Nigeria politics, rather to show the whole world how serious and determined they were towards the restoration of Biafra independence.

“There will be no election in the whole of Biafra land, no retreat, no surrender because we have taking it as a point of duty to restore Biafra without war anybody or group calling for war is doing that at his or her own or detriment. we are calling United nations and other relevant human rights organizations across the globe to prevail on Nigeria Government to give us date for referendum to ascertain whether the people of Biafra want to stay in Nigeria or not.

“IPOB under Nnamdi Kanu is a peaceful and ordained movement that is bent only to restore Biafra independence. We are not fighting for our personal gain and we are only interested in Biafra restoration or nothing, IPOB will boycott election in Anambra State.”

      Gerald. Stephen…Nnamdi Kanu is not an idiot but a courageous, fearless and indomitable Igbo man who is leading a movement whose sole objective is to fight for the freedom and liberation of the economically and politically marginalized Igbo people. Rather than condemning the peaceful agitation of IPOB that bears no arm, why not view them as those fighting for political emancipation of defective entity forcibly fused together called Nigeria. Many of you staunchly oppose this justified agitation from IPOB seeking for freedom because you have big businesses and huge investment across the country. But you’ve forgotten that millions of your brothers from the southeast region are currently trapped economically and are grappling with underdevelopment with no key federal assets in there constituencies but are scattered in other part of the country providing them with huge opportunities and edge above your own people, and you find no problem with that? Let’s stop been selfish. If we know we are not confident enough to join the movement, then let’s leave them to agitate for there freedom as long as it is peaceful and within the confinement of Nigerian constitution .

      You are deceiving yourself, Biafra will make everybody comfortable? U forget that ur leader are among those that stole the money that belongs to everyone, at this time , if u believe Biafra is the solution , is better u wake up , and redeem ur image with other tribes , advice ur Kanu to apologise to NIGERIANs and lets us all join hands and fight the thieves instead of throwing insults at people .

    LET BOYCOTT MEAN boycott! But should some people decide to vote, I hope that IPOB would not try to physically resist them: For one thing might lead to another, and IPOB would be tagged a terrorists organisation. The path of peace is the path of virtue, at least for now. Hence, if some people choose to vote, let nobody try to prevent them; only see them as the saboteurs that drag the clock of Biafra backwards.
