Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Monday bagged an award in Enugu for his contribution to the ‘development of Igbo nation’.
Nnamdi Kanu insisted that only restructuring of Nigeria between now and October 1, this year will guarantee the holding of November gubernatorial election in Anambra State.
The Radio Biafra director who spoke in Enugu at a brief event where he received awards from three Igbo groups, including the Eastern Consultative Assembly (ECA) and the Igbo Students’ Association (ISA) told a selected journalists that unless the Federal Government restructures the country before October 2017, the world would be shocked with the fate that would befall the scheduled Anambra election.
According to him, “There will be no election in Anambra State come November 2017 and going forward there won’t be any election until they give me date for a referendum. They know what to do; convene a meeting, I will send my rep, give us a date for referendum; that is the only way.
“In which part of this earth have you ever found a measure of self-determination to be equated to war except in Nigeria because the political leaders do not understand the difference between self-determination and war?”
“Self-determination does not mean hate speech; the status quo can no longer remain. Like my brother Evangelist Eliot Ugochukwu-Uko said, if on or before October 1 nothing happens in terms of substantial restructuring, then there won’t be any election; the people will support us.”
“On oppositions to my call by the Ohanaeze Ndigbo and other Igbo leaders, make no stand because the people are with us; we have their support 100 per cent and come Anambra, on the 18th of November 2017, the world will be amazed.” Kanu added.Get more stories like this on Twitter & Facebook
