Outcome of 2019 presidential poll has vindicated Kanu, says IPOB
By Steve Oko
The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, has described the outcome of the February 23 presidential and national assembly polls as a vindication of the position of its Leader, Nnamdi kanu, that “election in Nigeria is useless”.
IPOB said the monumental rigging, violence and electoral malpractices that characterised the exercise were an attestation that ” there can be no free and fair election in Nigeria “.
In a press statement issued Sunday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB, mocked the polls and dismissed it as “a charade”.
It read in part :”One obvious fact remains that our stance that voting in Nigeria is useless has been vindicated by the result of the shambolic rigging fest they call elections.
“The unacceptable levels of humiliation, intimidation, killing, announcement of fake results, coupled with sponsored propaganda against our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and entire peaceful movement like IPOB by strategy deficient perennial losers, cannot stop our total resolve to restore Biafra sovereignty in the shortest possible time.
“Only a moron and worker of iniquity will pretend not to know what transpired in the colonial contraption called Nigeria during the recently concluded presidential elections.
“Using the military, police and armed thugs to rig in favour of the ruling party was clear for all to see.
“That the result has been sanctioned by some weak minded apathetic Nigerians as well as the Fulani loving British colonial masters, despite the horrors of that elections, is proof, if one is needed, that poor masses of Nigeria are like tormented caged animals stripped of every dignity and lacking in courage.
“It’s a pity and downright unbelievable that their so called Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and it’s agents would allow themselves to be used by the executive the same way they used the judiciary in the country to subvert the will and desire of the people. Thankfully such brazen display of primitivity will never obtain in Biafra.”
IPOB vowed to push ahead with its quest for independent Biafra despite stiff resistance by government.
” We reaffirm our position clearly to all and sundry, in Nigeria and beyond, that Biafra freedom and sovereignty is non negotiable regardless of the political permutations in Nigeria.”
IPOB, therefore, urged Igbo politicians still hoping to succeed Buhari in 2023 to jettison such “wishful thinking ” and join the struggle for Biafra independence, saying that Igbo have no hope in Nigeria.
“We are not unaware that some Fulani slaves in Biafraland, particularly Igbo politicians are still nursing the misguided hope of becoming president of Nigeria in 2023.
“We are calling and advising them to retrace their steps and join the movement for Biafra restoration because Biafra sovereignty is sacrosanct.
“If they were ignorant of the fact that current Nigerian system will never allow them to come near Aso Rock, events of February 23 in Lagos and northern Nigeria have brought home the stark reality that Biafrans are not needed at the heart of Nigerian politics.
” Another Fulani man will in all likelihood rig himself into power in 2023 with the help of Yoruba Muslims and the British. All the people will say then is, let us live in peace and move the country forward”.
