NIGERIA POLITICS: ‘2019 Biafra Land Will Not Vote for Any President’: Kanu, IPOB Leader

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), says the November 18 governorship election in Anambra state will not hold if the federal government fails to conduct a referendum on Biafra.

Speaking at his father’s palace in Afara Ukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, Abia state, Kanu threatened that members of his group might also boycott the 2019 general election.

He also said Biafrans were ready to go to prison if the federal government did not grant their request of having a republic.

“If the federal government does not agree with us on a date for referendum, there will be no elections in the southeast, we are starting with Anambra come November this year. There will be no governorship election in Anambra state,” Kanu said.

“In 2019, the whole of Biafra land will not vote for any president. There will be no senator, there will be no house of reps, there will be no house of assembly and there will be no councilor-ship elections in Biafra land if the federal government fails to call for a referendum.

“Nigerian government should build as many prisons as possible to jail all Biafrans because there is no going back and we are ready to go prisons unless the federal government gives us Biafra.

“We are not like any other people. People like us don’t come twice. That’s why I know that with the last breath in this very body that Biafra will be restored. There’s nothing anybody can do about it. Tell them that’s what I said. Nobody on this earth can stop Biafra.”

Kanu, who is standing trial for treason, was granted bail in April after two years in detention. Part of his bail condition is not to be seen in a crowd.
