Why we won’t call on Igbos to boycott 2023 elections – IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) says it will not call on Igbo people to boycott the 2023 general elections because it has no interest in the polls.

“We have stated for the umpteenth time that we have nothing to do with the Nigeria elections and have neither called for a boycott nor do we have the intention to call for election boycott during this coming elections,” it said in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful on Thursday

He said: “More importantly IPOB has not called for any sit-at-home during the duration of the election and therefore distance ourselves from any purported sit-at-home in Biafra land during the election.

“Those calling for “No Election” and sit-at-home during the election period are simply Fulani agents whose sole motive is to discredit our Self Determination movement by attempting to paint it as an anti-democratic force.

“Their intention is to create the groundwork for the international community to view IPOB as being against the democratic process and provide them with an excuse to clamp down on our activities and on IPOB Leadership.

‘We have continued to make this fact public and for reasons best known to the Nigerian Media and some public commentators, they have deliberately continually attributed the actions of these politicians and government paid infiltrators to the noble movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB.”
