Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has urged the international community to rezone the country to enable each zone go back and conduct their own elections in the interest of peace.
Assistant National Information Director, Mr Sunny Okereafor, made this call while speaking in Umuahia, the Asia State capital.
He said MASSOB has introduced vehicle plate number, bearing United States of Biafra, drivers and vehicle licences, tax receipt, international passport and currency at the World Bank, which are things that make a people a nation, there is the need for Biafrans to stay on their own.
On polls shift, he said: “We are calling on the international community to split Nigeria into six geo-political regions so that every region will go and conduct elections because we want peaceful co-existence. We are a non-violent organization and we are introducing non-violence in all the struggles for self-actualization in the whole of Africa”.
He urged all Igbo to go acquire all the things he has mentioned, get them and start using them because Biafra has come to stay.
“If you remember when President Goodluck Jonathan was making his broadcast in January, he said that a new nation has been born, the nation he was referring to is Biafra. Biafra is around, this is our identity, I am urging all Igbo to go and look for it. It is available in the whole Biafra region”, Okereafor said.
He extolled the virtues of their leader, Chief Ralph Uwazurike, whom he said introduced non-violence in the struggle for self-actualization, stating that non-violence is their fruit .
“That is why we are preaching non-violence where ever we go, we are a non-violent organization. We have everything to move as a nation. So, all the ethnic groups should go and conduct elections for themselves,” the Information boss said.
