President Muhammadu Buhari has granted the real Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB] leave to conduct a referendum in the South-East of Nigeria as soon as possible.
This was disclosed by the Solicitor for Indigenous People of Biafra, Emeka Chigozie Emekesiri, Esq. in a letter addressed to the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo.
The letter was titled “Memorandum for Activation of Referendum Process for Biafra- Legal Notice to the UN and Nigerian Government” and delivered to Elombah.com.
In the letter, Barrister Emekesiri issued notification to Chief Nwodo informing him of an imminent move to conduct a referendum in the South East.
He, therefore, directed the Ohanaeze Ndigbo President General to gather people together “IN PREPARATION FOR THE REFERENDUM TO VOTE FOR A STATE WITHIN A STATE AS DIRECTED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA.”
The letter reads in full:
Further to our previous correspondence and telephone conversations with you on the above subject matter, please find attached the memorandum for activation of a referendum process which has been served on the Federal Government of Nigeria.
Although a copy of the Legal Notice to the United Nations dated 05 Sept 2017 was given to you by the Law Chambers of Jaycee Gold Solicitors, we have attached it again to the memorandum sent to the Nigerian Government [Download a copy here].
For clarity and to give you a proper understanding of the history of the movement by Indigenous People of Biafra, we have attached some documents showing how the movement started and how Nnamdi Kanu came into the picture and why he was ostracised by the Elders in 2014 [Download a copy here].
He was our member up to 2014 but left us and said he did not believe in the legal methodology.
The reasons for his excommunication are stated in the Public Notice and Disclaimer issued by Dr Dozie Ikedife [Download a copy here].
We are trying to rebuild what he destroyed by his incendiary language and confrontational methodology.
We advise you now to gather your people together in preparation for the referendum to vote for a state within a state as directed by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
We further advise you to liaise with Dr Dozie Ikedife, the Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Council of Elders of Indigenous People of Biafra who acts on behalf of the Chairman, HRM the Honourable Justice Eze Ozobu OFR, in managing the affairs of Indigenous People of Biafra.
He will give you more information about the body known as INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA and their Elders from all parts of Biafraland.
We have copied this email to Dr Ikedife and Prof Nwala who are championing the emancipation cause for our people.
We advise you to use your good offices as the incumbent President General of the Igbo Nation to move this project forward to its actualisation.
The Legal Notice has been duly served on the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the UN Secretary General.
If you need further information on the process, please contact the Law Firm of Jaycee Gold Solicitors directly at www.jayceegold.com.
More information on the Biafra Project can be found at the Customary Government of Biafra website at www.ipobgovernment.org
We advise that the Biafran Intelligentsia and Elder Statesmen should take over the Biafra Struggle now and bring it to perfection as the children and youths have played their own part.
It is time for the President General of the Igbo Nation to gather his people together to speak with one voice so that we would not be like sheep without a shepherd.
We must prove to the whole world that we are governable and can rule ourselves as a nation.
