The Ralph Uwazuruike-led Biafra Independence Movement (BIM), has disclosed that it would not boycott the November 18 Anambra governorship polls.
Speaking to newsmen in Aba, Okporie Nkama, the leader of the group in Abia South, described the call to boycott the elections as anti-Igbo.
Nkama said members of BIM have been directed to come out en masse and vote a candidate of their choice, to ensure continuation of democratic governance in the state.
”BIM is not in support of any individual or group calling for the boycott of Anambra governorship poll on November 18.
”When you boycott the election, you are selling your right and giving a chance to those who don’t want of Biafra to take over.
”Anambra election cannot affect the actualization of Biafra. Anyone calling for boycott is anti-Igbo. We have embarked on sensitisation visits to the 21 local government areas of Anambra State to urge people not to allow themselves to be deceived.
”There will be anarchy in Anambra if the election does not hold. As an organisation that practises non violence, BIM warns Ndi Anambra to ensure that they turn out en masse to support their choice candidates during the election,” he said.
