Foremost pan Biafra group, Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra ( MASSOB ) on Friday directed its members in the forthcoming general elections.

MASSOB gave the directive after its National Executive meeting presided over by its leader Comrade Uchenna Madu at Awgu, Enugu state.

The meeting was attended by all the state, zonal, LGA coordinators and National Directors.

A statement by the group directed the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) should be allowed “to conduct elections in Biafra land for those that still believe in Nigeria state”.

“MASSOB advised that other pro Biafra groups that planned to boycott the elections are entitled to stay at home during elections days,” according to a statement by its Director of Information, Comrade Samuel Edeson.

MASSOB added: “In recognition of the freedom of political participation and exercises, we declare that this year general elections in Nigeria will not be stopped or boycotted in Biafra land.

“Our people that still believe in Nigeria projects are free to participate in the electoral processes of Nigeria including this year as we have allowed INEC to conduct elections in Biafra land.”

The group, however, reaffirmed commitment to actualisation of Biafra through the principles of non- violence and international diplomacy in collaboration and brotherhood with other progressive pro Biafra groups.

“MASSOB, having realised that Biafrans cannot forcefully impose our desirable interest on the people of Nigeria and also having understood the principles of non -violence, MASSOB unanimously agreed and resolved that Nigeria state will independently and internally observe and conduct their political exercises including general elections.
