The leader of the pro-Biafra group, Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is presently touring the United States of America and Canada with his team canvassing for support from expatriates, who originate from the parts of the Nigeria that fell within the territory of the Biafra of 1967-1970.
Disclosing this recently was the media and publicity secretary of the group, Emma Powerful, who state that Kanu and his team are on the tour of USA and Canada “with emphasis on diplomatic overtures and rallying the Biafran base to restore Biafra within the shortest possible time.”
Powerful commended the pro Biafrans in the state of California for their “rousing welcome,” of Kanu and his entourage and their support during the town hall meeting it held last Saturday, June 15.
“Biafrans across the USA and Canada have been re-energised with the message of hope and restoration, which has not only captivated Biafran audiences who are fortunate enough to attend these events, but has also 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.
“Many more IPOB family meetings, influential individuals and diaspora organisations are queuing up to host our leader in various cities across the United States. 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.
“After Houston Texas, our leader will visit Chicago to meet Biafrans in the state of Illinois. From there, he will proceed to New York, where he will round up the tour,” he said.
