Anambra Governorship: Ala Igbo meets with Kanu to reconsider position on poll

Anambra Governorship: Ala Igbo meets with Kanu to reconsider position on poll

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPoB) may reconsider its position on its threat to stop the November 18 Anambra governorship election.

This is coming after a meeting its leader, Nnamdi Kanu held with the leadership of a non-governmental organisation, Ala Igbo Development Foundation in Owerri, the Imo state capital on Friday.

“I came because of my respect for elders. IPoB is not a violent group. We are law abiding citizens of the society. What we agreed here today will guide us in the issue of Anambra election. I will go and meet with the leadership of IPoB.”

The electorate in Anambra have therefore been advised to go out and exercise their rights to vote without fear of molestation. The President of Ala Igbo Development Foundation, Uzodimma Nwala, said it was the first meeting with the IPOB leader on the boycott order on Anambra governorship election.

“As you see in our midst, you see our brother Nnamdi Kanu, we have come to discuss the issue of mutual concern, especially on Anambra election. We are happy he is here with us.

“As we know the IPoB decision on boycott of election and you know that IPoB is an orgarnised group and the agitations born out of marginalisation of the Igbo.

“We are glad he has explained to us the reason they issued the boycott order and that it is not his personal decision but that of the IPoB leadership. We are meeting for the first time and will still meet again. No decision has been taken.”
