The Indigenous People of Biafra ( IPOB) has made it very clear, that there’s no going back, on its decision to boycott the forthcoming 2019 general elections.
This was made known by Uche Mefor, the group’s Deputy Leader. According to the group’s deputy leader, in what seemed like a response to Niger Delta freedom fighter, Mr Askari Dokubo’s statement, criticizing IPOB’s decision to boycott the forthcoming Nigeria’s 2019 general elections.
In a statement on Thursday, the IPOB deputy leader accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of manipulating results, yet people are criticising it, for planning to stay off the coming election.
“You cry everyday that the constitution is a fraud, the election rigged, INEC used as electoral tool to manipulate results and yet you senselessly or naively continue and want people to vote and yet you are a freedom fighter?
“Look, IPOB cannot mutate and certainly don’t change course midflight , IPOB remains ideologically consistent.
“Do your own and we do our own and in the end we take stock. IPOB refuses to betray the trust of her followers or sell them by joining Nigerian politics.”
The IPOB also made it known that it has no problem changing its tactics , as long as their demands are met. “Our demands must be met or we apply another sophisticated strategy if the anomaly subsists”.
“In the final analysis , it is my considered opinion that those who are suggesting that we change course are at best insincere.
