The Director of Radio Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has signalled that his pro Biafra independence group IPOB Might be willing to call off its boycott of the 2019 elections if some political concessions are made to it.
Speaking in a broadcast from his base in Israel, Kanu said;
“The point of what I have been saying is simple: The raging debate issuing from IPOB’s decision to boycott the 2019 elections should not be about the pros and cons. Rather, those that know that the boycott will hurt them should direct their energy to consideration of the political concessions that can be made to IPOB to persuade it to call off the boycott.
Even though the IPOB Leader did not go into specifics about what concessions he has in mind, it will be recalled that IPOB is currently proscribed in Nigeria.
It will also be recalled that the activist group has been agitating for a boycott of the 2019 elections unless a referendum on Biafra’s independence is agreed to by the Federal Government.
