BREAKING: 2023 Presidency, IPOB Makes Fresh Demand From Nigerian Government

The (IPOB) has rejected the idea of dropping its agitation for an independent Biafra in favour of a 2023 Nigerian presidency.

The group in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful said what they want is freedom and it is beyond just a presidential term.

It, therefore, urged those urging them to drop their agitation to rather prevail on the federal government of Nigeria to give them what they want.

“To those who think we can drop our agitation for Biafra because of their promise of Nigeria President of Igbo extraction in 2023 must be smoking mind bending drugs because their hallucinations will not get them anywhere.

“Take your useless ‘Igbo Presidency’ and give us Biafra. Biafra is non- negotiable and very soon we shall restore our dream republic!,” the statement noted.

IPOB also declared that there is no going back on the October 1st sit-at-home order declared by its leader, , saying it’s a peaceful way of expressing their dissatisfaction with current happenings in Nigeria.

“This order which is a peaceful protest of our discontent with the injustices, misrule, oppression, genocidal killings and other atrocities perpetrated by the government of Nigeria against Biafrans and other indigenous peoples in this British-created contraption must be observed throughout Biafraland.

“Any governor, political office holder, shameless poverty stricken Caliphate slave or Efulefu in Biafraland or anywhere in Nigeria who thinks he can endear himself to their Caliphate masters by issuing any counter directive must understand that what awaits every traitor in the history of liberation struggle is inevitably waiting for them.

“Those using the cover of political office to surrender Ebonyi State to the murderous Miyetti Allah terrorists and their counterparts using the name of inconsequential and roundly compromised socio-cultural groups to issue statements designed to attract Fulani patronage must be made to understand that treachery never pays.”

Powerful also urged those who will be participating in the protest not to allow criminals to take over the protest so it won’t become violent, but urged total compliance.

He said “All markets and business premises in Biafraland must remain closed from 6am to 6pm on October 1st. The same way, Biafran traders outside Biafraland should stay away from their shops and business environment on that day.

“All roads in Biafraland must be deserted. Every motor-park should be under lock and key, it must remain closed. Motorists, tricycle and motorcycle operators should keep-off all roads in Biafraland.

“More importantly, parents and guardians should not make the mistake of allowing their children to step outside or gather in large numbers as terrorists are planning a deadly attack on that very day.”
