Mazi Uche Alphonsus Okafor-Mefor, deputy leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has stated the necessary things the pro-Biafra group must do if it means business with its agitation for a Biafra republic.
Mefor in a direct statement on his social media page also condemned, without mincing words, what he described as “the gestapo approach and hawkish manner of administration” in IPOB, adding that the inconsistent application of rules of engagement seen in the group must be put to an end.
Below is what the IPOB deputy leader wrote.
“TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT, WE MUST ALL COME TO THESE INEXONERABLE FACTS AND REALITY SOONER OR LATER
“Like I have severally opined in different quarters, for Biafra to be restored, there must be genuine consultations, absolute inclusiveness and participation of all people of Biafra from both upland and coastal regions in the affairs affecting their lives either directly or indirectly through their representatives unless where they clearly say otherwise.
“Every form of discrimination must be frowned at. IPOB must dedicate and apply herself absolutely to this all-important and critical process.
“Enlightenment and sensitisation have been done very successfully by IPOB family members and while all these involved a lot of theorising, it is now time to put them into practice. Pragmatic approach to all these is now an irreducible minimum.
“If we are serious about restoring Biafra, the gestapo approach and hawkish manner of administration in place, inconsistent application of rules of engagement seen here and there must cease.
“A lot of injustices have been directed against a number of people in IPOB. These must not be overlooked and we must ignore these to our consternation. There are clear incidences of abuse of process, there are lies , there are gang-ups against innocent people. All these and the victimisation by some principal officers of their subordinates must stop now while genuine, sincere reconciliatory effort, not stage-managed one put in place.
“The principal officers, ordinary IPOB family members must help the leader by giving the right information as appropriate that would subsequently engender sound and informed decision when acted upon.
“All these must not be allowed to terribly spiral out of control. There is still chance to rectify all these mess.”
