SAHARANEWS – The Biafra Indigenous Council of Elders, BICOE, has declared its support for the boycott of the upcoming presidential elections in Nigeria.
In a proclamation made on Thursday during a meeting in Obigbo, Igweocha (Rivers State), the elders reiterated the call for Biafra referendum, saying it is the only way to let the masses decide their fate.
Speaking after the proclamation, the president of BICOE, H.R.M Bishop Tete Etim Peter, urged everyone to boycott the elections.
He said “Those they are telling us to vote for do not care about us, all they care for is their selfish interest.”
“Our demand just as Nnamdi Kanu said, is referendum, not elections. Since they do not want to conduct referendum, then we have to boycott their useless election”.
“If you observe carefully, you’ll see that the country have already divided itself but they are trying to hide the fact under their grammatical expression “One Nigeria”. One thing the government should note is that Biafra freedom is not negotiable for anything else.”
“We the elder won’t participate in the election”.
