"Why We Insist On Anambra Election Boycott' -- IPOB
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB on Saturday, dismissed allegations that it wants to disrupt the November 18th Governorship election in Anambra.
It rather stated that it only holds plans to boycott the election.
The group who spoke in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful insisted that it wants referendum to be conducted on Biafra exit.
The statement read: “What the good people of Anambra State should watch out for is the well known rigging antics of INEC. We insist on total boycott of all elections because voting in Anambra or any other elections in Nigeria is an exercise in futility because Aso Rock have already decided who they want sworn in as Anambra governor despite the warm words of free and fair elections emanating from APC praise singers in the South East.
“A country like Nigeria riddled with institutionalised injustice cannot conduct a free and fair elections. No free and fair elections has ever been conducted in Nigeria’s history, so Anambra State cannot be an exception. Risking ones life to go and vote on Saturday, with trigger happy Hausa Fulani soldiers looking for Biafrans to kill, is a risky adventure not worth undertaking by any sane person.”
“That they have perfected plans to rig the upcoming Anambra State Governorship election in favour of the most loyal Hausa Fulani slave among the contenders is not a secret.
“IPOB Intelligence Unit have uncovered plans by APC to import voters from Imo State with the help of Rochas Okorocha. Willie Obiano on the other hand is working hand in hand with Gov. Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State to bus in Northern youths resident in the state into Anambra to vote for Willie Obiano as a reward for signing up to the war against IPOB.
“At this moment, they have concluded plans to declare the APC candidate winner, whether people vote or not. What this means is that our vote doesn’t count. Voting is tantamount to legitimising illegitimacy,” IPOB said.
It further stated that it was same crop of politicians who conspired with the Federal government to carry out Operation Python dance that led to the death of many youths in the South East region, that are urgin them to vote.
“We hereby warn all commercial vehicle operators to please stay away from Anambra State starting from the evening of the 17th of November because any vehicle seen will be regarded as hostile and working to subvert the will of the people.
“On no account must any vehicles pass through Anambra State because some politicians at the payroll of Fulani caliphate are hell bent on causing trouble on the 18th by importing alien voters into Anambra State.
“We are fully aware that all soldiers and police drafted into Anambra State have been brought ostensibly to facilitate the rigging of the election and to kill as many people as possible. So any vehicle seen on the road will be considered a threat to their plans to rig the election and the occupants of such vehicles will be shot dead.
“Therefore, we advise every body to stay in doors on that fateful day in Anambra State and to desist from driving through the state from 5pm on Friday the 17th of November to 6pm on Saturday the 18th,” the statement stated.
