The Indigenous People of Biafra, also known as IPOB, has issued a stern warning to members of the Independent National Electoral Commission, also known as INEC, to refrain from rigging the governorship election that will take place on November 11 in Imo State.
IPOB stated that it would not remain mute and enable the Nigerian government to deploy INEC officials to carry out wickedness in the state of the state.
In a statement released by IPOB, the organization’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, issued a warning to INEC not to instigate a crisis in the state.
The following is an excerpt from the statement that was released: “The global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by the great and indefatigable liberator Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU warns INEC not to throw Imo State into political crisis in the coming Imo State gubernatorial election.”
“In as much as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) does not get involved in the fake political selection that is being termed an election in Nigeria, we are not going to remain silent and watch the Nigerian government deploy corrupt INEC officials to perpetuate evil in Imo State and, by extension, the Southeast Region.
“Everyone is aware of the fraudulent operations that were carried out by INEC during the elections in Nigeria. INEC is not independent; rather, it is completely dependent on the government that is now in power or on any politician who is a moneybag and uses their position to stuff their own coffers.
“However, in this impending election in Imo State, INEC officials must exercise extreme caution in order to avoid throwing Imo State into crisis by becoming willing tools to renew another four-year mandate of agony, hunger, and killings.
“INEC officials must not be another Supreme Court that imposes a candidate that has been rejected on the people of Imo using the fulanized Supreme Court.” Because of the Supreme Court’s unconstitutional action, the state of Imo has been subjected to unjustified suffering, political intimidation, and widespread deaths.
It was emphasized by Powerful that IPOB is opposed to political parties and the government that are harmful to the people in the Southeast.
He stated that Hope Uzodinma, the governor of Imo State, “has ensured that insecurity reigns supreme in Imo State and beyond.”
“Those who are conspiring with him to rig him back into power should watch their back,” he advised those who were involved in the plot. One who brings back ant-infested firewood has, inadvertently, invited lizards to a celebration.
“Consequently, INEC officials that Hope Uzodinma handpicked and drafted to rig the election in Imo State should be very careful not to buy a market that comes with expensive prices. This is because Hope Uzodinma selected and drafted them to rig the poll.
“We want these drafted INEC officials to know that the people of Imo State are groaning in pain from a killer government, and it will be suicidal for them to subvert their wishes in this coming election because of money or threat,” he continued.
“We want them to know that it will be suicidal for them to subvert their wishes in this coming election because of money or threat.”
