Ahead of the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra state, the Indigenous Peoples of Baifra (IPOB) has vowed to truncate Governor Willie Obiano’s chances of returning to government house.
The governorship election has been fixed for November this year by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
The pro-Biafra group has vowed to ensure that Governor Obiano does not return to government house after the November poll.
The group, reacting to statement credited to Obiano that IPOB was a toothless bulldog, capable of words but incapable of action and being used by a few to enrich themselves under the guise of fighting for Igbo freedom, said the governor has crossed the red line and the consequences would be dire for his second term ambition.
In a statement issued by its spokespersons, Mr. Emma Nmezu and Dr. Clifford Iroanya, the group reminded the governor that his success in the 2013 governorship election was made possible because of the position IPOB took in repudiating the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate, Dr. Chris Ngige.
“For the records, IPOB though apolitical, was instrumental to Obiano being the governor of Anambra State because we repudiated the northern and Islamic-dominated APC party represented by Dr. Chris Nwabueze Ngige and we still do repudiate them till today,” the group explained.
“We promise Obiano that even though we abhor and repudiate Nigerian politics, we shall do to him what we did to Dr. Chris Nwabueze Ngige in 2013 Anambra gubernatorial election,” it further warned.
It said the test of IPOB‘s popularity and efficacy is never in doubt as it brought the entire Biafraland to a standstill on September 23, 2016 with successful sit-at-home protest.
According to the group, it was a costly venture for the Anambra governor to question the popularity and then refer to it as toothless bulldog and rear tyres that can never overtake the front tyres, knowing that IPOB has repeatedly demonstrated its popularity as was the case on September 23, 2016 when it carried out a successful sit-at-home protest.
“Obiano called IPOB a toothless bulldog but after the November 2017 election, he will know if IPOB is a toothless bulldog or not. We assure Obiano that he shall surely fail in his re-election bid, just as he failed in his ill-conceived pro-Buhari rally,” it threatened.
