Nothing Must Threaten Anambra Gov Election -Ohanaeze

The apex pan-Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, warned that nothing should threaten the November 6 governorship election.

This is despite a planned lock down of the South-East by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

IPOB yesterday announced that it will declare a lock down of the region if its leader, Nnamdi Kanu is not released from custody of the Department of State Services, DSS on or before November 4.

The proposed lockdown is scheduled to commence November 5 and last for a week.

IPOB statement read in part, “Following the adjournment of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s court case to November 10, 2021, by the Federal High Court Abuja, we, the great movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, wish to inform Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom that IPOB will lock down Biafraland from November 5 to November 10 except Sunday, November 7th, a day our people worship the almighty God, if the Nigerian Government fails to release our leader unconditionally before 4th of November 4, 2021.”

Ohanaeze spokesman, Alex Ogbonnia who spoke to The Punch warned that nothing must threaten the Anambra governorship election.

He said, “Ohanaeze Ndigbo urges everybody to show maturity and wisdom especially in issues concerning the Indigenous People of Biafra, especially now that leaders in Igboland from all walks of life have united in the struggle to ensure that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is freed.

“The November 6 Anambra governorship election is very important to all Ndigbos, because the state is the economic live wire of the Igbo. It is in the best interest that Anambra maintains its economic growth. Therefore, we appeal to our youths to show maturity. Anything that disrupts this election is not in the interest of the Igbo. We wish that the election should be held.”
