Nnamdi Kanu is not working for Biafra –  Uwazuruike

The Founder / Leader of Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra and Biafra Independent Movement , Ralph Uwazuruike, has said that the leader of Independent People of Biafra , Nnamdi Kanu , does not actually work for Biafra ’ s independence , but for his own “ selfish interest . ”
He also advised Ndigbo to disregard Kanu ’ s Sunday broadcast in which he declared “ no election / referendum ;” adding that Kanu does not have the powers or the right to stop the Igbo people from participating in the 2019 general elections 

“ Last time , he carried a campaign that there wouldn ’ t be election in Anambra State and what eventually happened in the end ?

“Today , he has started again. He is back again after several months , because election is just by the corner , so as to deceive the people and mop up money for himself as the IPOB leader and in the name of fighting for the realisation of Biafra independence . ”
Uwazuruike, who spoke on Monday in Owerri, Imo State , contended that he was the Number One person and the protagonist in the agitation and struggle for the realisation of Biafra Republic .

He further said that Kanu was only deceiving the people, adding that the dummy of no election , sit -at -home order , referendum and no census that Kanu was selling today was originally introduced by him for the realisation of the struggle .

“In 2004 , we in MASSOB came up with dummy of no election , sit -at -home order , referendum and no census , which Kanu is selling today in the Southeast as strategies towards gaining Biafra independence .

“However , when I was later called by late Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu and other higher authorities that the strategies would have adverse effect on Ndigbo, we decided to drop them .

“Today , Kanu is using the same dummy to cause confusion in the Biafran areas , not considering their adverse effects. ”

“ For instance , the issue of no election is a constitutional matter . Kanu does not have the powers to say that election can never take place in the Southeast .

“The truth is that in the Southeast , we have only five states and what a presidential candidate , for example , only needs to win his or her election is two -thirds majority vote .

“If the five states out of the 36 states , including the FCT , do not vote and 31 states vote , two -thirds majority would still be gotten .

“The president then has the powers to appoint anybody to be in charge of the other five states who do not vote . This is, therefore, politically detrimental to Ndigbo. ”

On referendum, Uwazuruike noted that it was not in the Nigerian constitution , adding that for it to be enshrined in the constitution , it must get the approval of the National Assembly and the Presidency .

“These are things some Igbo people do not know . Kanu has started his campaign to cause more confusion for our people, which I call campaign of calumny and deceit .

“The emergence of Kanu in 2009 , 10 years after I had started the struggle , was stage -managed by the government to put confusion among the leaders and the people, strictly aimed at non -realisation of the republic .

“What Kanu suffered recently in the hands of soldiers is just one -twentieth of what I have suffered in the course of this struggle .

“A freedom fighter is always known for donating his life to the cause of the struggle . That he ran away after a while and reappeared during the electioneering period is deceitful .

“He is being used to destabilise Ndigbo towards gaining the independence of Biafra. ”

Uwazuruike, nevertheless , expresses worries about the lives of innocent people recently killed in the last “Operation Python Dance ” and in what he called “ the deceitful way of agitating for Biafra sovereignty. ”
