Anambra Election: Ohanaeze Praises IPOB Over Its Recent Decision, Assures Them Of Kanu’s Release


Following the cancellation of the recent sit- at- home order from the IPOB ( Indigenous People of Biafra) group, the Igbo socio- cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has applauded the group on their change of plan.

Recall that the proscribed IPOB group was said to have given an order to the South- east, to observe a one- week sit- at- home in order to express their support to their detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

According to the report, the order issued by the group was meant to commence on the eve of the November 6 Anambra gubernatorial election. This, however, made so many groups, including the Ohanaeze Ndigbo to negotiate with the IPOB over its decision.


However, after much deliberation, the group called off the order on the 5th of November, maintaining that they would not be the ones to instigate violence or cause any kind of rigging in the election because of their order.

Reacting to this new development, Ohanaeze President General, Professor George Obiozor disclosed how grateful they are over the cancellation, adding that their struggle would never be in vain.


Meanwhile, this was made known in a statement titled ” Anambra Election: Please come out and vote” , through the group’ s President General on Friday, at Ekwuluobia Anambra State.

” Ohanaeze applauds the decision of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to cancel the one- week sit- at- home order earlier scheduled to commence Friday, November 5, 2021.

The statement by Emma Powerful, the spokesman of IPOB, that they have heeded the advice of the well- meaning Igbos is a welcome development.


Ohanaeze Ndigbo had earlier pleaded with IPOB to reconsider its position on Sit at Home syndrome in the South East of Nigeria, reiterating that self- immolation is the worst form of rights struggle.

Ohanaeze maintains that IPOB is a child of circumstance occasioned by orchestrated national political decisions; and to this end, it requires a political solution which the leadership of the South East are committed to, ” the statement read in part.
