Following the recent official declaration of President Mohammed Buhari to run for second term in office, the leadership and family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have termed the declaration “a welcome development,” adding that it portends goodwill for the rebirth of Biafra.
This was made known in a press release signed by Emma Powerful, the media and publicity secretary of IPOB which read in part, “The leadership and family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide view the decision of the bearer and custodians of the name Muhammad Buhari to seek re-election in 2019 as a welcome development. We have always maintained that the rebirth of Biafra will happen under Buhari or under whoever is answering to his name.
“This second coming of Buhari portends goodwill for freedom lovers because the God Almighty, Chukwu Okike, Abiama wants to fulfill his divine purpose in the life of Biafrans in 2019 as foretold by our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu many years ago.”
The group also urged secessionists of the Middle Belt and Western Nigeria not to give up reaffirming their resolve to continue their global campaign to peacefully bring the existence of Nigeria to an end. “No doubt we have lost a lot of people under the brutality of this terror APC regime; we also have many innocent citizens in prison and detention facilities across Nigeria with countless miscarriages of justice in their law courts but we remain undeterred, focused and determined, because, like Israelites in Egypt, Jews in Europe and Germany, blacks in apartheid South Africa, no amount of tribulation will stop us from emerging victorious as a free people at the end of this process.
“We urge our brethren in the Middle Belt and Western Nigeria not to give up or capitulate in this our collective quest to free our people from the shackles of caliphate domination and creeping Islamisation. At IPOB, we are continuing the intensification of our global campaign to peacefully bring the existence of this disastrous colonial experiment called Nigeria to an end in order that millions of innocent lives may be saved.
“We are advising Biafrans and other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria seeking to be free from this contraption created by Fredrick Lugard, the British mercenary, to remain mentally strong and resolute for what is about to come will test our collective resolve.
“IPOB will not relent in its pursuit for total liberation of all territories presently under Arewa feudal Islamic bondage regardless of the human and material cost. The continued existence of this disastrous APC government led by Major General Muhammadu Buhari and his Fulani cabal, is our passport to freedom”, the statement read.
