Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has stated publicly that they will ensure that Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State will not rule the state for a second time after the

November 2017 poll.

The pro-Biafra group, in a statement issued by its spokespersons, Mr. Emma Nmezu and Dr. Clifford Iroanya, was reacting to a statement credited to Obiano describing IPOB as a toothless bulldog being used as a tool by a few to enrich themselves under the guise of fighting for Igbo freedom.

The group said the governor crossed the line and the consequences will hinder his second term ambitions.

IPOB further pointed out that Obiano won the Anambra State governorship election in 2013 because the group rejected the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr.

Chris Ngige.

The group said that it was a costly venture for the Anambra governor to question the popularity and then refer to it as toothless bulldog and rear tyres that can never overtake the front tyres, knowing that IPOB has repeatedly demonstrated its popularity as was

the case on September 23, 2016 when it carried out a successful sit-at-home protest.

The group said: “For the records, IPOB though apolitical, was instrumental to Obiano being the governor of Anambra State because we repudiated the northern and

Islamic-dominated APC party represented by Dr. Chris Nwabueze Ngige and we still do repudiate them till today.

“We promise Obiano that even though we abhor and repudiate Nigerian politics, we shall do to him what we did to Dr. Chris Nwabueze Ngige in 2013 Anambra gubernatorial election.

“Obiano called IPOB a toothless bulldog but after the November 2017 election, he will know if IPOB is a toothless bulldog or not. We assure Obiano that he shall surely

fail in his re-election bid, just as he failed in his ill-conceived pro-Buhari rally.” (Nigerian Pilot)
