The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has said that the declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari for second tenure is a welcome development that will help in the actualization of Biafra. In a statement by its Media and publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, the group said,
“This second coming of Buhari portends goodwill for freedom lovers because 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.
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.
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.”
IPOB also urged the people of Middle Belt and South Western Nigerians not to give up or capitulate in the collective quest to freedom of their 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.
IPOB therefore advises Biafrans and other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria seeking to be free from Nigeria as created by Fredrick Laggard, 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 cabal kinsmen is our passport to freedom.”
