A pan-Igo grassroots sociocultural organisation, Imeobi Igbo said no amount of threat by Nnamdi Kanu, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), would stop November 18 gubernatorial election in Anambra state.
The forum also said the problem in Igbo land has nothing to do with the conduct of election but marginalisation that Igbos are part of in the country, Nigerian Tribune reports.
Mike Ikegulu-Onugha, its national chairman urged Kanu to take easy with his agitation.
Ikegulu-Onugha:''We respect Kanu’s enthusiasm but I don’t know what he has in mind for saying that there will be no election in Anambra state, he should soft-pedal.
''The referendum he is talking about will come one day and it is not by boycott of election that we will achieve a Biafran republic, rather, it will worsen our problem.
''We will constitute a reconciliatory body to help move Igbo nation forward and for those who believe we don’t have a king in Igbo land they are funny because we have.
''This organisation has its tentacles in Igbo land and we will screen all the candidates when the time comes to know their antecedents''.
The traditional leaders met with him to discuss the upcoming gubernatorial election in the state
