Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had aksdd Nigerians to boycott the forthcoming elections.
The IPOB leader who also fixed February 16th, which is the date for the presidential election, as the day of the referendum for Biafra, said this on Saturday during his live broadcast from London, UK.
“By voting, all you are doing is perpetuating the misery of our people, he said.
“To vote in the zoo means to endorse 1999 fraudulent constitution. By voting, all you are doing is perpetuating the misery of our people.
Reacting to Kanu’s statement, many Nigerians are calling those of Igbo extraction to shun election boycott and go all out to vote the candidate of their choice. Some of them who reacted via Twitter, labelled KANU a fraud, and asked that he should be totally ignored.
Take a look at what Nigerians said via Twitter
I thought Nnamdi Kanu guy is even educated and sensible but lately he's been saying all sort of gibberish. How can you tell your people not to vote & exercise their civil right ? And somehow he thinks he'll get a referendum by doing that smh dullard.

Nnamdi Kanu used to make sense until this his recent "boycott election" nonsense. Now he's no better than a desperate lout be clouded by power mongery,self service and greed.

Nnamdi Kanu, a descendant of Israel and citizen of Britain says you should not vote on February 16 because the presidential candidates are from Sudan and Cameroon.

Nnamdi Kanu has fixed the Biafran referendum on the day of the presidential elections, Feb 16 and directed all Igbos to stay at home so Biafran population commission will come and count them for referendum purpose.

Biafra was never the answer then, isn't the answer now an would never be in the future. The Igbo's should go out and vote. KANU is an idiot and would always be an idiot.

Those agitating for boycotting of election on 16 Feb are worst than fools, this Biafra thing is getting some people mad. Igbos are known for their self reliance and deep thinking. Where is Nnamdi Kanu that's asking you to boycott election? pic.twitter.com/7L0u4GpJYH

My Dear Igbo Brothers and Sisters, let me use @AMADICHIMA as a point of contact to tell you all that Nnmadi Kanu of IPOB is simply working for Buhari's re-election. He wants votes apartheid in South East(#Atiku's stronghold) So that buhari can win.
His tactics cannot work.☹
