The Indigenous People Of Biafra has affirmed its neutrality in the upcoming general elections, calling on all to vote the candidate of their choice.


The Igbo separatist group through its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, said that the group does not have any interest in Nigeria elections.


According to The Sun, the group encourages all to go out and vote the candidate of their choice, describing those who plan to disrupt the election process as not members of the IPOB family.


According to him, “we have stated forumpteenth time that we have nothing to do with the Nigeria elections and have neither called for a boycott nor do we have the intention to call for election boycott during this coming elections.


“More importantly, IPOB has not called for any sit-at-home during the duration of the election and therefore distance ourselves from any purported sit-at-home in Biafra land during the election.


“Those calling for no election or Sit-at-home during this forthcoming fraudulent elections do not represent IPOB, are not IPOB family members never were IPOB family members and are not working for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.


“IPOB cannot legitimise a process whose foundation is abinitio of your choice. This is one of the reasons we have distanced ourselves from the selection process called Nigeria elections.


“We are not stopping anybody from performing his or her civic responsibility by voting person of your choice, IPOB did not order sit-at-home. IPOB is not against anybody coming out for elections. Everybody should go out on these days criminals mentioned as sit-at-home. There is no sit-at-home order in Biafraland,” he added.
