Leader of the outlawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has is succeeding in his quest to garner support as he continues his diaspora tour aimed at actualizing the Republic of Biafra.
According to IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, in a statement on Tuesday in Awka, Biafrans across the west coast of the USA had publicly pledged their moral and material support for Biafra restoration.
He said many more IPOB family members, influential individuals and diaspora organisations were queuing up to host their leader in various cities across the United States.
He said that Kanu would visit Chicago to meet Biafrans in the State of Illinois, after Houston Texas, before proceeding to New York where he would round up the tour.
The statement read in part, “As our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his team continue the tour of USA and Canada with emphasis on diplomatic overtures and rallying the Biafran base to restore Biafra within the shortest possible time, we commend the family California for the rousing welcome and support given to our indomitable leader during the town-hall meeting held on the 15th of June in Los Angeles.
“Biafrans across the USA and Canada have been reenergised with the message of hope and restoration which has not only captivated Biafran audiences who are fortunate enough to attend these events, but has permeated the subconscious of every black African who has come into contact with this message of redemption as evidenced by the high number of goodwill messages received by our leader from non Biafrans.
“The next stop for our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be the city of Houston Texas on the 21st of June 2019, where we expect Biafrans and non-Biafrans alike to gather to welcome and listen to him preach the gospel of the restoration of Biafra at a town-hall meeting.”
