The upcoming mass boycott of Nigerian Government’s scheduled 2019 general elections by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), is a sign that Biafrans are unequivocally prepared to exit the Nigerian contraption. It also alerts the international community that Biafrans are not playing with their freedom demand. It is immoral and lack of sensibility for IPOB under whatever guise to be agitating amidst series of dehumanizing treatments for the restoration of their inheritance and at the same time, be campaigning/participating in a shambolic election. IPOB ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not so characterised. Boycotting Nigeria organized elections strongly sends the signal to civilized global community that Biafrans are not mincing words about the restoration of their fatherland.
Recall that voting has been ongoing in Nigeria for decades with absolutely nothing beneficial to show for it except pauperisation, humiliation, oppression, marginalisation and death. Never again should the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), be hoodwinked into participating in fruitless, corrupt and nepotistic electioneering process in Nigeria. What is needed henceforth, is a date for Biafra referendum and total independence. Biafrans are determined more than ever before to take their own destiny into their hands by uncompromisingly, placing a demand for a referendum date which ushers in peaceful, civil, democratic process recognised and approved globally, for the realization of independence by all oppressed indigenous peoples.
Nigerian self-serving politicians are only interested in their frivolities as they transverse through the length and breath of the regions, soliciting for election votes from the electorates. Their predominant interests revolve around what they can garner within their tenures for their immediate families and close associates and nothing else, at the expense of the overriding desire of the overburdened/impoverished populace. Biafrans have over the years been at the receiving end of this abnormality as these political hawks connive with those in both Federal and State Governments to mortgage people’s destiny and that of their forthcoming generations.
The murderous military expedition code named Operation Python Dance II was particularly orchestrated to eliminate the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, when his home at Afara-Ukwu Ibeku community in Umuahia, Biafraland, was invaded by a battalion of Nigerian soldiers on the 14th of September 2017. In that dastardly act, 28 IPOB family members were gruesomely killed and properties worth fortunes, wantonly destroyed, all in a bid to truncate the peaceful agitation for the unfettered restoration of the sovereignty of Biafra.
This intent of the Nigerian government and it’s Southeast Fulani political slaves, was flatly disappointed. What they failed to understand is that the Biafra restoration project is divinely orchestrated and no antics of mere mortals can drown it. Biafra is an ideology that can never ever be wished away. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is an ordained vessel of God, selected to drive this mandate. There is absolutely no plot of men, their complicity nonetheless, that can stifle this project nor eliminate it’s pointman. Unleashing series of Operation Python Dances in Biafraland to quell this desire, is an exercise in futility. Biafrans are more than ever determined to carry this mandate clinically through, the hiccups notwithstanding.
As resilient as we are as a people, we will remain undeterred in the complete boycott of the planned 2019 Nigeria general elections as a mark of proof before the world, of our resolve. Biafrans must exit this evil jungle called Nigeria through legitimate means. Civil disobedience is a veritable democratic platform through which voices of discontent over nefarious activities of any government, with Nigeria as a case study, are made known. Biafran people will continue with elections boycott in the country until their demands are acceded to.
A call for referendum is not a call for war. It is rather a civilized alternative of democratically and practically demonstrating through the instrumentality of votes albeit legitimately, peacefully and openly, what the people want/where they wilfully choose to belong. This system of expression is unambiguously contained in the United Nations charter and even the Nigerian Constitution. Biafrans especially within Biafraland, are therefore enjoined to collectively and massively boycott the forthcoming Nigeria elections as ordered by the supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, as compliance will definitely speak volumes pertaining the restoration struggle. The crumbs that fall out from the tables of fulanised Biafran political slaves and their oligarchical overlords during elections should be wholesomely disregarded. It is ridiculous that we as a people, are only remembered and regarded during electioneering seasons and campaigns.
Biafrans are today, much wiser and are extremely prepared to take back what rightly belongs to them. This is an era of recovery and all our stolen inheritances must be restored. The 2019 Nigeria scheduled general election which commences on Saturday 16th February 2019 with the presidential election, must be totally boycotted unless of course, the demand of the people is adequately met. Biafra freedom from this British enterprise called Nigeria is pivotal than the sham of an election being awaited. That very day billed for the presidential election has been declared “OFE OKAZI DAY” by the IPOB leadership, wherein Biafrans throughout Biafraland must sit at home and get themselves sumptously treated, with this traditional delicacy. The boycott exercise will record an exceptionally monumental compliance. Let us be wise and do not allow ourselves be used to our eternal regrets.
