Biafra: Boycotting 2019 Election Will Be Suicidal Mistake – Prof. Nwabueze

share on:

The Chairman of the Igbo Leaders of Thought, ILT, Professor Ben Nwabueze, SAN, has cautioned against the boycott of the 2019 elections to avert a costly mistake.

Some groups in the South-East including the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have been canvassing a boycott of the election in the South-East and South-South geo-political zones to press home their demand for the Republic of Biafra through a referendum.

Leader of the IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in his broadcast on Radio Biafra, London, on Sunday restated his call for the Igbo to boycott the election.

He said among other things that IPOB is not interested in anything else other than for the government to set a date for a referendum.

“We will not relent till referendum is conducted. We stand for the truth. It’s referendum or nothing else,” he noted.
