Tony Okafor, Awka
The National Chairman of the Independent Democrats, Chief Edozie Madu, has said that the Indigenous People of Biafra lacks the power to stop any election in the country.
He described IPOB’s threat to disrupt the November 18 poll in Anambra State as empty.
The ID leader spoke in Awka, the Anambra State capital, on Tuesday, while inaugurating the party’s women league and a 10-man committee of the party in the state ahead of the governorship election in the state.
He said, “If Nnamdi Kanu of IPOB thinks his movement is popular he should form a political party where he will have all the powers and legitimacy to participate in elections the way he thinks.
“We are fully prepared and ready for the Anambra governorship election. We don’t listen to such talks. We don’t want to be distracted because we are out to win. No party has presence in the 21 local government areas and 326 wards in the state as ID.
Madu asked the committees to mobilise the people of the state to vote ID in the November 18 poll.
He condemned the Sunday killings by unknown gunmen at Ozubulu, describing them as barbaric and satanic.
He expressed optimism that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration would not allow the perpetrators of such dastardly act to go unpunished, adding that the Anambra massacre was a wake-up call to security agencies to work harder at creating a crime-free society. (Punchng.com)
