Political party,The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in a new letter addressed IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu and signed by Ifeatu Obiokoye, national publicity secretary of the party has blasted him for saying elections will not hold in Anambra state come november. This he did in threat to the Nigerian government achieve Biafra.
According to APGA, Kanu has no right whatsoever to speak for the Igbos and added that his actions were responsible and devoid of intellectual focus.
The letter further said that the Igbo people doesn’t have separatist movement or a terrorist group but are concerned about Nigeria’s present structural arrangement.
“His call for a boycott of elections in the south-east, beginning with the governorship polls scheduled for November 18, 2017, in Anambra is irresponsible, irredentist and totally devoid of any focus.You must appreciate that for different logical reasons and perception, the Biafra concept has attracted favourable comments among our people, ostensibly borne out of the marginalisation of Ndigbo in the Nigerian state.While youths of the east are agitating for Biafra, the Arewa youths are equally restive; the same goes for Niger Delta youths and youths from Oduduwa states.In this popular agitation for Biafra, Ndigbo have not instituted a separatist movement or a terrorist gang as it were. We are more concerned about the continued existence of Nigeria under the present structural arrangement.”He said.
APGA also urged Nnamdi Kanu not to be tricked by the compliance of the May 30 sit-at-home call which could be attributed to many reasons.
APGA recalled that the 2014 national conference addressed parameters for the restructuring of the nation and saw no need for the the unnnessary threat to disrupt elections.
