Count Us Out Of Biafra Republic – Anambra State

Anambra state governor, Willie Obiano

The move to actualise the Sovereign Republic Biafra suffered a terrible setback as the indigenes of Anambra State, under the auspices of Anambra Peoples Assembly (APA), have distanced the State from the Biafra struggle and secession.
They warned Biafra agitators and Nnamdi Kanu, their Leader, to maintain a distance from the State, while pledging loyalty to Nigeria.
In a statement signed by its Coordinator, Mazi Nnamdi Okorafor, the group declared that the people of Anambra State are law-abiding and will not be dragged along by any individual, or group of persons.
“I will assume that there are no men in Igbo land, if we allow a small boy to drag all of us into war against Nigeria, through hate speech”, he said.
“Nnamdi Kanu is making a fool of himself, very soon his paymasters will distance themselves from him. He and his illiterate minions will be dancing alone in the market square naked. Being Igbo does not mean you are an IPOB member, neither does being an IPOB Leader, make you the Leader of the Igbos”, he stated.
He also described Kanu as a confusionist, who suggests ideas capable of destroying lives, while he left his family in the United Kingdom, UK.
“Let truth be told. But with due respect to the right thinking and illustrious sons and daughters of Abia State. Let me ask these questions, When did an Abia man become wiser than the Anambra man, to warrant a confusionist like Nnamdi Kanu to order Anambra people not to vote, while his Abia Governor is still on seat?
“Why would the good, wise, and hard-working Anambra sons and daughters listen to a guy man who kept his wife and kids in London, come here to suggest what is capable of destroying the lives of young Anambra youths. Anambra people should not allow anybody to toy with their future and destiny.
“We agree that self-determination is the right of every person or group in Nigeria, that being said. We hereby declare that Anambra State has distanced self from Biafra struggle. All Biafra activists and agitators are warned to leave Anambra and return to their various States of origin.
“We are too big to be dragged along by any person or group of persons. Anambra State indigenes and lawful residents, will register and participate fully in the forthcoming Governorship elections of November 2017, in the State.” [myad]
