As the 2023 election gathers steam, the apex Igbo socio-political organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has pleaded with the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to allow elections hold in the southeast region in 2023.
Recall that IPOB had through its spokesperson who deploys the pseudonym, Emma Powerful, said elections in Nigeria are contrary to its mission.
But Ohanaeze’s spokesperson, Alex Ogbonnia, is asking the outlawed group to have a rethink.
“We appeal to our brothers in IPOB to allow the election to hold. Their agitations are understandable but they must not let their anger consume them.
“Even during the turn of (Chukwuma) Soludo, they first refused but when we appealed to them, they listened. During the turn of (Willie) Obiano, we appealed to them, and they listened. This time around, we want to plead that they also listen to us,” Punch quotes Ogbonnia as saying.
