From Maurice Okafor, Enugu
Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have expressed gratitude to an Igbo socio-political group, Eastern Consultative Assembly (ECA) for selecting the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Nkanu as the organisation’s leader equally.
In a press statement issued yesterday by IPOB Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, and made available to The AUTHORITY, IPOB described the development as a mark of appreciation of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s struggle for the emancipation of Ndigbo.
The Authority recalls that the ECA, took the decision of announcing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the detained IPOB leader/Radio Biafra Director, as its new leader even in absentia at its meeting held Tuesday in Enugu.
Part of the IPOB Press statement read: “The election, even in absentia of our leader as the new leader of ECA, is a great testament to the appreciation by our people, of the sacrifice our leader is making for the liberation of our people and our progeny.
“We assure the ECA, that our leader will not sell us out neither will he disappoint in any way. We thank you all for the great confidence reposed in our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
