Ohanaeze Supports Ipob’s Decision to Remain at Home.

 FastNews reports that the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has petitioned the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to cancel the sit-in that was scheduled to begin tomorrow, November 5, and end on November 10, 2021.

The IPOB’s spokesman, Comrade Emma Powerful, announced on Thursday that the one-week sit-at-home protest had been called off due to interventions from prominent religious and traditional leaders in the South-East.

It also urged Anambra voters to turn out in force on Saturday to vote.

Reacting, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, hailed the IPOB for once again heeding the voice of reason.

In a statement signed by the President-General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, he said the development was in the best interest of the entire Igboland.

“We are delighted over the cheering news that the IPOB has canceled the one-week sit-at-home, which we earlier said would be of great consequence on the entire Igboland.

“It is a thing of joy that the IPOB has finally looked at the larger picture by canceling this action. Although it came, it is still better than ever.

“We commend the Uchenna Madu-led Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, for standing firm over Saturday’s Anambra Governorship election. “At this point, we re-echo our appeal to our people to go out en-mass and cast their ballot for their preferred candidate in the Anambra guber election,” Okwu said.
