Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB), said speaker of the House of Assembly will take over on the interim in Anambra state if the coming election fails to hold.
Reports have it that Kanu made this known in Onitsha part of the state on Thursday, August 10, while enlightening the members of his group on the need to boycott the forthcoming November 7 governorship election.
Voice of Ndigbo gathered that he said the emancipation and redemption of the ”people of Biafra” would come when they boycott the November 18th governorship election in Anambra state.
He said: ”We brought the gospel of the restoration of the kingdom of Heaven, which is Biafra and the emancipation and redemption of our people, which comes by the boycott of November 18 governorship election.
”The boycott will not attract any vacuum or state of emergency because the constitution provides for replacement of the governor in case of death, vacation or whatever circumstance that may have led to not producing the governor or deputy.
”In other words, the constitution provides that the speaker of the House of Assembly will take over government on the interim basis and that is going to happen in Anambra state.
”The people of Anambra must boycott the governorship election and further elections, for Biafra to come, until we get the date for a referendum”.
Meanwhile, it’s reported that the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra and the Biafra Independent Movement accused Kanu of planning to force the federal government to declare a state of emergency in Anambra state.
