The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has reaffirmed his decision that the group would boycott the forthcoming general election.
The IPOB leader made this known in a radio broadcast to his members on Monday, January 21, 2019. He said:
“It has come to my attention that some people may have elected to misinterpret what I said regarding election boycott.
“The same way some Lagos-Ibadan gutter media attacked my expose on Jubril but today, everything I said about the impostor is unraveling one after the other.
“This news broke this evening (Saturday) that President Buhari will not participate In the presidential debate.
“What does this tell you? It goes to confirm what I told all of you that Jubril will never participate in the presidential debate because he’s not Buhari.
“This evening, I will offer clarifications to remove whatever ambiguity mischief makers may have introduced in their desperate attempt to dampen the spirit of our people.
“I must make it categorically clear that we IPOB are boycotting the forthcoming elections starting with the February 16 presidential election.”
