A group, under the aegis Anambra Progressive Assembly, has declared that Anambra State has dissociated itself from the agitation for the state of Biafra.
It further said that the forthcoming gubernatorial election will take place as planned. In a statement made available to the press, the group mandated all agitators to leave Anambra State to and return to their states of origin, saying that it will never allow itself to be drawn into another war by a ‘small boy’.
The text of the statement:
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.
THIS IS OUR STAND
Below is excerpts the brief interaction:
Ojukwu started this cause,he is even in death an illustrious son of Anambra state and a prominent Nigerian. He was given a state burial with the President of Nigeria in attendance. His casket was draped with Nigerian flag. Ojukwu left this earth a Nigerian. He left an instruction to Uwazuruike and insisted that any form of injustice could be resisted and opposed, freedom for his people could be fought for, but not separation from Nigeria. This was Ojukwu’s wish and instruction. Anambra son,started this cause and left it.
Did Nnamdi Kanu take permission from Anambra people before he commenced what he can not achieve? Or is he trying to tell the Anambra people that what their son, the great Ikemba couldn’t achieve he can?
And the only way to prove that he is an OSU and Efulefu, who couldn’t achieve anything in London, is to compete with the great Ikemba and defile his wish and instruction, by asking his good people of Anambra state to go into a collision cause with the Federal Government of Nigeria, by ordering them not to chose who will govern them in a free and fair election.
Anambra people please differentiate the voice of God from the voice of the devil.
You are wise people don’t listen to a scammer.
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.
Let truth be told. But with due respect to the right thinking and illustrious sons and daughters of Abia State. Let me ask this 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.
Being Igbo does not mean you are an IPOB member, neither does being an IPOB leader makes you the leader of the Igbos!
I WILL ASSUME THERE ARE NO MEN IN IGBO LAND, IF WE ALLOW ONE SMALL BOY TO DRAG ALL OF US TO WAR AGAIN IN NIGERIA THROUGH HATE SPEECH.
Mumu is when you follow a leader who will lead you nowhere, and you are still screaming “ochebey”
Brother, it’s time to see you think!
