Following preparations for the November 6th governorship election that would take place in Anambra, it has been reported that the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to face its business of conducting elections, disclosing that it has no business with it.
According to reports, the secessionist group was reacting to a statement credited to INEC, which reportedly said that it would meet with IPOB to dialogue and negotiate as the governorship elections in Anambra State draws nearer.
The spokesman of the secessionist group, Emma Powerful, has reportedly disclosed in a statement, “Following the statement from the Independent National Electoral Commission that it is coming to negotiate or dialogue with IPOB over the forthcoming Anambra governorship election, we the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to reiterate once again that we have no business with INEC.”
It added that, “INEC should face what is facing it and leave IPOB alone. We have not dialogued with the Nigerian Government, let alone INEC.”
It made it known that, “We found laughable the declaration by the Nigeria police that they are coming to Anambra State governorship elections on 6th of November with 33,000 personnel and three helicopters to kill Igbo citizens on that day.”
