Nnamdi Kanu’s Call For Biafra’s Referendum On Election Day Irresponsible, Highly Misplaced — UP

On February 9, 2019 238 Comments

The acting National Chairman of United Patriots, Chukwudi Ezeobika, has faulted the call by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, to hold a referendum on the sovereign State of Biafra on February 16, a day set aside by the Independent National Electoral Commission for presidential and National Assembly elections.

He said the call was irresponsible, unpatriotic and highly misplaced.

Ezeobika, who is also the party’s senatorial candidate for Anambra South, said this in a statement on Saturday.

He said having full knowledge of the deplorable state of affairs in Nigeria under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress government, it was strange and disturbing for anyone to encourage the Igbos to boycott the general elections especially the Presidential and National Assembly elections in place of a referendum.

He said, “The consequence of this unfortunate call for a referendum by Nnamdi Kanu cannot be overemphasised hence, my genuine call on all Igbos wherever they are in Nigeria to jettison this irresponsible call and turn out en masse to vote for a presidential candidate of their choice come February 16.

“It is very important to note that this call for a referendum during elections is neither in the overall interest of the Igbos nor advantageous in any way, to the political life of the Igbos as their political strength will further be diminished if they heed such irresponsible call to boycott the general elections.

“More than ever before, the South East being the region with the lowest registered voters in the whole of the country at the moment, the Igbos across the Nigerian federation must seize this opportunity to display higher intelligence and wisdom and not be fooled by individuals who place their personal interests first before the overall collective interest of the Igbos in general.

“With the emergence of Mr Peter Obi as the presidential running mate to Atiku Abubakar, there is indeed a need to look beyond these very presents and concentrate more on the things that unite us as a nation than the things that tear us apart.”

    I STILL WANT TO MAKE A SIMPLE THING CLEARER TO THE EDUCATED FOOLS:

    We are not concerned over who wins the “selection” called election
    We as the indigenous people fully understand that there must be a fool selected to be the winner whether we vote or not.

    The winner is not and would never stop us from restoring Biafra.

    We are boycotting the Election because our votes does not count

    We will not vote because we do not want to take part in the validation of the fraudulent “selection”

    We don’t want to vote because we are not Nigerians

    We will not vote because the candidates are the same people that have killed a lot of our people

    We don’t want to vote because the election is just a formality and not an election in reality.

    We don’t want for because election boycott is a weapon for freedom.

    We will not vote because we can not be bought.

    We will not want to vote because God will be angry with us

    We don’t want to because the candidates are not qualified to rule us.

    We don’t want to vote because we have been so marginalized and we are not regarded as part of the entity.

    We will not vote because we will be conducting the referendum that will aid our secession on the same day.

    We will not vote because we have been denied of every other right and the right to vote is meaningless to us

    We will not vote because we want our voice to be heard.

    We will not vote because there had never been an election without the lose of life in Nigeria.

    We don’t want to vote because the zoo have argued that our numbers can not get us victory in an election.

    We will not vote because of the political structure of Nigeria.

    We will not vote because we are not fools.

    I can go on and on to give you good and genuine reasons why we will not vote.

    while you don’t even know why you want to vote but let’s just end it here.

    WE WILL NOT VOTE BECAUSE WE NEED BIAFRA PERIOD ‼️

    I don’t blame anyone who is supporting the conscienceless politicians. They have impoverished the mind, pockets and turned everyone to opportunistic scavenger. The money they would have used for ur welfare is what they are using to sponsor all manner of rubbish articles… and the victims are reading and rejoicing.

    Where is he, let him come and stay with us here in Nigeria.
    No wonder you want your myopic and senseless followers to boycott an electoral process.
    The secret has been made open,because Nnamdi Kanu knows that if we Easterners boycott the elections it automatically hands victory to APC. With all Kanu’s recent statements one could easily see that Nnamdi Kanu is working for APC,that is why the APC government has not condemned his statements. Ala arimma bu-uru ndi nze.
    I only wish our young people that are been killed and brainwashed will get sense.
    If he mean business, let him come back, you that is been deceived stop from today for using the Naira, destroy all your certificates, leave Nigeria school or bring your children out from Nigeria school. Stop using Nigeria electricity,stop plying on Nigeria roads, cut yourself off from everything that has Nigeria inclinations.
    You want or wish to boycott elections but will still be under Buhari’s government for the next 4years. Brothers and sisters please get sense and understand what is happening around you.
    Hope Jibril issue has died a natural dead, right now it’s either Atiku is from Cameroon or PDP this or PDP that. Ask yourself, how does all these statements help us in our struggle to achieve Biafra? You guys should borrow a leaf from Catalonia. You can only achieve independent through dialogue and that we are not doing,you guys are busy chasing Shadows .

      What are you doing to achieve the Biafra? How are you contributing positively? The statement of Kanu should come here and stay with us is not statement of men of good conscience. Kanu was here some yrs back, and we all saw how dedicated and courageous he was. Did you protest against military cramp down on armless and harmless agitators? Imbecility and ignorance gives some of u too much boldness.

      Meanwhile, Biafran Igbos never voted Buhari into power, it was this same Atiku while still in PDP then, instead of supporting GoodLuck Jonathan, conspired with his Fulani brothers in APC to betray Jonathan just so a Fulani man must be in power, now he wants that office and u guys are asking people to vote for him, the same office he never supported a so called Niger Delta man to occupy abi, abeg make I hear word, as if votes ever even count in this country. You guys brought Buhari, and called him the Messiah, so go and remove him, Terrorist don’t vote

    Dele Giwa, Abiola, Bola Ige, Fela Kuti among others were murdered in cold blood by the Hausa/Fulani oligarchy, and the Yoruba cowards resorted to mute indifference. Even when Aguiyi Ironsi was killed, the highest ranking officer to take over was a yoruba, but he vanished into oblivion and gave himself asylum in a white man’s land. The same way Uthman Danfodio struck once and defeated them and infiltrated them with dirty Muslim is the same way they are still porous and vulnerable till date. Hausa Fulani wanted to murder their son Osibanjo last week at Kabba, Kogi State, but none of them said anything in protest. I have never seen such cowardice and sycophancy before in history.
    Go and bury your face in shame you ofe mmanu na ose.

    The Igbo nation is seriously under siege by internal forces of Nnamdi Kanu’s foot soldiers.
    The age long pretence of the Igbos is now exposed beyond repair. Some dunces who still believed that Igbos doesn’t have a central government and leadership should wait until Nnamdi Kanu begins to invite all the Governors in his captured territory to bring their vouchers of spending and proposals for approval or be lycheed.
    These Ajokuta-mamu’mii people are the NEWEST mugus of the second decades of this millennium.

    KANU and his group cannot disrupt elections in the east. The best they can do is stay away from the elections, that’s their fundamental right. But if they try to stop people from voting by carrying out their so called referendum when and where people are voting they will have themselves to blame. I’d recommend a shoot on sight policy. We respect their rights to not vote so they should respect our right to vote.
