We’ll accept restructuring from referendum—IPOB

Post by Kingseyi on Thu May 17, 2018 12:44 pm

ENUGU —THE Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has said that
it was not opposed to restructuring of the country, if that
was the outcome of the a referendum in the old Eastern
Region.
IPOB made this known while clarifying its position on the
proposed summit on restructuring by the Ohanaeze Ndigbo
on May 21, 2018 at Awka, Anambra State.
It however, said that its opposition to the summit was
informed by the roles played by Ohanaeze during the
Operation Python Dance 2 by Nigerian soldiers which led to
the killing of hundreds of innocent youths of Biafran
extraction as well as the destruction of its leader’s (Nnamdi
Kanu’s) home at Umuahia, Abia State, late last year.
A statement signed by the Media and Publicity Secretary of
IPOB, Emma Powerful, read in part: “We, the global family of
the IPOB, feel the need to clarify why we are opposed to this
particular Ohanaeze Ndigbo jamboree slated for May 21, 2018
at Awka.
“Anybody or group that attends this event will be seen as an
enemy of the people and a direct supporter of Operation
Python Dance 2 which was instigated by the organizers of
the said Ohanaeze Ndigbo summit to eliminate Mazi Nnamdi
Kanu and his family, thereby leaving our land open for
perpetual dominance of invaders.
“To associate with Ohanaeze’s summit led by Nnia Nwodo is
tantamount to an endorsement of mass murder of innocent
agitators fighting for the freedom of everybody.
“IPOB is not against those that hold the legitimate view that
restructuring will best address the myriad of problems
afflicting the masses. We are firm believers in democracy,
plurality of opinion and divergence of views, so if during a
referendum a majority of the people vote to adopt
restructuring as the preferred option to outright break from
Nigeria, we would be bound by it.
“What we have issues with are traitors and collaborators
using the cloak of restructuring to advance their personal
political ambitions at the expense of the well- being of the
suffering masses. Dr. Alex Ekwueme, Prof. Tunji Braithwaite,
Pa Anthony Enahoro, Prof. Ben Nwabueze, Pa Ayo Adebanjo,
Chief Mbazuluike Amechi, Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu and many
more notable elder statesmen have been at the vanguard of
restructuring for over 20 years.
“None of those trying to use this jamboree in Awka now to
advance their personal political interests ever supported the
great champions of restructuring mentioned above. It wasn’t
until the coming of IPOB led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu that
restructuring gained the irresistible traction it has today in
Nigeria.
“That Britain, USA and other influential nations are exerting
pressure on rulers of Nigeria to agree to restructuring is due
to the determination of the IPOB led agitation for Biafra. What
Nnia Nwodo and others in Ohanaeze Ndigbo cunningly did
was to seek the death of Nnamdi Kanu and those in IPOB that
are responsible for shaking the fraudulent foundations of
Nigeria to the point where restructuring has become
inevitable so they can take over.”
