The Nnamdi Kanu led IPOB has repeatedly said that the November Governoship elections in Anambra State will not hold. Now the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) says the election slated for November 18 in the State must hold.
The National Director of Information of MASSOB, Sunday Okereafor, in a chat with Punch stated that the people of Anambra should be prepared to exercise their voting rights on that day saying it was wrong for anybody to say election would not hold in the state.
He said, “Eighteen years of MASSOB existence would be celebrated on September 13, 2017. We will celebrate it in a big way and MASSOB is saying election must hold in Anambra. It must surely hold. We have come a long way and we are the founders of the struggle. All the pro-Biafra groups came out of MASSOB. We are telling Anambra people to go ahead in November and be part of the election.”
Okereafor explained that insisting that there would be no election in Anambra could put the lives of the people in danger. “IPOB is wrong to have said election will not hold. How can they say election will not hold? They want to create problems in Nigeria. They want our people to be killed again? We are saying no violence and they are inciting violence. The people of Anambra should go ahead and elect their leaders on the day of the election”.
