A twist has emerged among agitators of Sovereign State of Biafra, as the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Monday, issued a warning to the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB against disrupting the November 6 governorship election in Anambra.
Leader of MASSOB Uchenna Madu made the declaration after its monthly national meeting, during which it also advised the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to ensure that the election was credible and peaceful.

“Having studied the political, economical, religious and social implications of not having a credible election in Anambra State and imposing a non-representative of Ndi Anambra as their governor, MASSOB declares that the Anambra governorship election slated on November 6th 2021 will hold as announced by INEC.

“That the Anambra State governorship election must be peaceful and credible as MASSOB has issued out instructions to our 21 LGA coordinators, three senatorial zonal leaders, 310 provincial administrators and all MASSOB securities to assist in effecting a peaceful and credible election in Anambra State.

“That MASSOB encourages the Independent Electoral Commission to go ahead without distraction in conducting the governorship election this weekend.

“That MASSOB advises the people of Anambra State and other residents in Anambra to exercise their fundamental and constitutional rights of electing their next governor because the Anambra political space will never be in vacuum.

“That MASSOB’s position on this weekend’s Anambra governorship election is for the interest of Ndigbo. We can never allow or give unfortunate legal room for outsiders to dictate our political and economic future.” the group said.

They further stated that their position on the Anambra guber does not change its position for the actualization of Biafra.

According to it, “MASSOB’s position does not mean derailment of the Biafran struggle for actualization and restoration. We must always consider the overall interest of Ndigbo first before group or individual interest.”
