The group through its leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, said that what Igbo wants is Biafra and not ‘Presidency’.
Recall that some Igbo elites have begun shopping for Igbo sons and daughters that would represent the region come 2023 Nigeria general elections.
Expressing his displeasure, Kanu through a statement by Comrade Emma Powerful, the groups Media and Publicity Secretary, said: “To those who think we can drop our agitation for Biafra because of their useless promise of Nigeria President of Igbo extraction in 2023 must be smoking mind bending drugs because their hallucinations will not get them anywhere.
“Take your ‘Igbo Presidency’ and give us Biafra. Biafra is non negotiable and very soon we shall restore our dream republic”.
On sit at home order it issue last week against October 1st, Kanu said: “We the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, wish to restate our irrevocable resolve to observe the sit -at -home order earlier issued by our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu against October 1st 2020 independence anniversary of Nigeria.
“This order which is a peaceful protest of our discontent with the injustices, misrule, oppression, killings and other atrocities perpetrated by the government of Nigeria against Biafrans and other indigenous peoples must be observed throughout Biafraland.
“Any governor, political office holder in Biafraland or anywhere in Nigeria who thinks he can issue a counter directive must understand that what awaits every traitor in the history of liberation struggle is inevitably waiting for them.
“All Biafrans home and abroad are united in their resolve to lock Biafraland down on October 1 and no traitor can break our ranks or dent our resolve.
“All markets and business premises in Biafraland must remain closed from 6am to 6pm on October 1st. The same way, Biafran traders outside Biafraland should stay away from their shops and business environment on that day.
