On Thursday night, Chief Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, call-off the ‘sit-at-home’ order he declared last year telling Ndigbo to boycott February 16 general elections,
It was stated that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB, call-off the poll boycott in a statement issued by the pro-Biafra group media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful on Friday in Enugu.
It read thus: “It is important we notify the world at large and the indefatigable global IPOB family in particular that our supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has called-off the election boycott in Biafra land. After a brief emergency session of the Directorate of State (DOS) late last night presided over by our leader, where it was determined that all our terms and conditions had been met by those wishing us to lift the ban on voting, it was unanimously agreed that the boycott should be lifted. The signed document agreeing to IPOB terms and conditions are in our possession and will be made public in due course”.
“We can, therefore, state with an utmost sense of responsibility and pride that IPOB has accomplished what no other people or group has been able to do in the history of our people. Without prejudice, this will go down as the defining moment when the irreversibility of the restoration of Biafra was firmly entrenched in the subconscious of all and sundry. As a result of which we can state categorically that Biafra is a lot closer than we think as a result of this”.
