The leader of the outlawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has noted that “Biafrans” are free to vote during the 2019 elections.
Concise News understands that he said this on Wednesday in a tweet on his handle where he alleged that those who will take part in the exercise will be “renewing their slave status”
He said the visit to the UK from Israel where he had been in exile is to finalize the process leading to a Biafra referendum.
IPOB had reiterated on many occasions that the Igbos should boycott the 2019 elections and instead fixed a referendum on the day of the presidential election, February 16th.
But in what seems to be a U-turn, Kanu said those who want to vote in the polls are free to do so.
“We in #IPOB recognise that freedom fighting is about philosophical purity and ideological consistency not pandering to political short-termism,” he wrote on his handle.
“Those that wish to renew their slave status in #Nigeria are free to vote.
“On February 16, 2019, #SitAtHome in Biafraland.”
We in #IPOB recognise that freedom fighting is about philosophical purity and ideological consistency not pandering to political short-termism.
Those that wish to renew their slave status in #Nigeria are free to vote.
