 Anambra Election: Your Votes Are More Important To Them Than Your Lives

My attention was drawn to an interview Arise Television had with one Festus Okoye, spokesperson to Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). He maintained that the electoral body will never negotiate with the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), and its military wing, the Eastern Security Network (ESN), over the “no election mandate” in Biafraland, starting with the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra State fixed for Saturday 6th November, 2021. Elucidating further, he arrogantly bragged about how modalities have been put in place for the election. He ignorantly referred to IPOB as an “outlawed” organization by clannish and lawless Buhari regime. He noted that a meeting between security agencies and the political parties had taken place to that effect.

Ignoring this gallery player, would have been the appropriate thing to do but for the unsuspecting public who might be misled into thinking that somehow, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is nursing any form of negotiation with anybody much less, INEC. For the record, the only negotiation IPOB will listen to is the one that will be pointing to either the release of Nnamdi Kanu, a date for Biafra referendum or both. The clarification from IPOB about this subject matter is a plethora. 

The problem with the Festus Okoyes of this world is that, as Fulani caliphate political errand boys, they would rather accept the ignominious role against the interest of their own people, than not to satisfy their treacherous urge. The general public is not dumb to trust a serial liar, notorious for handling issues of cheap lies by advising them to embark on a suicide mission called voting.  It is unthinkable that in the 21st century, an infinitesimal minority is trying to gaslight the majority. Anyone in doubt or contest of the above declaration should have no problem setting a date for referendum. He who comes to equity, must come with clean hands. 

While politicians are free to say whatever, the landlords have spoken unambiguously. The recent partisan campaign at Alaba International Market by Ifeanyi Uba campaign organization is a testament. Arguably, it can be true that campaigning in Lagos is a tradition. What is not true is the defiance, hostility and outright chanting of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as another saviour, by Igbo Biafrans. If such hostility can brazenly take place in Lagos, then those election advocates are already dancing in-between a rock and a hard place.

Any keen observer of the sit-at-home compliance, will effortlessly deduce what will happen on the day of election. There is no what-about-ism or what-if-ism. Since there is a parallel line already drawn between what the landlords desire and what the political saboteurs want, the only sensible advice will be for them to come out, with their families, en-masse that day.

Barring last minute dynamics which may lead to a sit-at-home not happening vis-à-vis an unconditional release of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu or the setting of a referendum date or both, will definitely be a fool’s errand to die for a chameleon politician configured to forget you exist once election (selection) is over. If you choose to come out for a politician who from all intent and purposes would stay indoor, you are responsible for whatever happens to you. IPOB will not be blamed for what DSS agents masquerading as ‘Unknown Gunmen' will do to you. Do not put yourself in a precarious position. Do not get caught up in a cross fire. Bullets do not respect any one. Your life is important. Your life matters. Preserve it and you will enjoy it when Biafra comes. Remember, after the previous elections, it was business as usual. A word is enough for the wise!
