The Director General of the Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria (MOBIN), Nwada Eberechukwu Anigbogu, has said that Biafrans are going to choose their leaders in the 2019 general elections.
The group’s position, articulated by the female leader was contained in a press release signed by its Director of Media and Mobilization, ThankGod Ofoelue, and made available to journalists in Enugu.
Anigbogu, who is the leader of foremost pro-political Biafran group also revealed that MOBIN has a template for the coming polls which will be unveiled in the near future.
The activist stated: “The continued deterioration of Nigeria’s economic front, human rights records and ratings in the comity of nations is a testament to the fact that there is a serious problem with its leaders.
“A great majority of the rulers of Nigeria today were not chosen by the Nigerian people but were imposed on them.
“Same goes for Biafrans. Here in Biafraland, our rulers were handpicked and imposed on us by the powers-that-be. Since 2017, we have continued to canvass for political participation of Biafrans to select popular candidates who will ensure that the welfare of our people are guaranteed.
“I want to use this opportunity to call on our citizens wherever they are to secure the future of their children by getting a voters card. No matter how difficult the process may be, you must deny yourselves your usual pleasures and ensure that you secure that PVC. We all must decide the future if Biafrans together. Stop leaving it in the hands of your oppressors.
“We will roll out our programmes in no distant time to ensure that Biafrans are never again oppressed,” the release stated.
