Anambra: Boycott inimical to Biafra Struggle – BRM

Overall Leader of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu

THE  Biafra Reformation Movement, BRM, has said that the call by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB to boycott the election is not in the interest of agitation for a separatist state of Biafra.

The group argued that it is an invitation to anarchy  and an opportunity for enemies of Ndigbo to unleash their desire on the Igbo nation.

The group also further argued that such calls could also lead to the declaration of a state of emergency in the state.

The leader of BRM, Comrade Ndubuisi Igwekani (aka Agu Biafra) at a press conference in Enugu recalled that the Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, stopped the Ndigbo from participating in the last national census, a development that partly led to the depression of the official number of the population.

“Most Igbo’s were not counted, and our number continued to decrease. So we must be careful in our decisions and tactful in some actions we ask our people to take, especially those that will not benefit them.

“Asking our people to boycott the election in Anambra may be an opportunity for an enemy to rule the state, and I don’t see how beneficial it is to the Biafra struggle; it is rather against the interest of our people.

“The person championing that cause I am even suspecting him because whether we boycott or not, elections will still hold and boycotting will not help us achieve Biafra rather we will be creating room for our enemies to come in.

“So we are saying that there must be an election in Anambra state; that boycotting the elections is not in the interest of the people. Everyone may not participate but let those who want to take part be allowed to exercise their fundamental human rights and chose who would rule them so that our territory will not be one to be hijacked by the enemy.

“Anyone saying there won’t be elections in Anambra state is making a great mistake because there shall not be a vacuum. There will be election in Anambra come November 2017.
