The upcoming Anambra state gubernatorial election which has been declared as "Ofe Nsala" day by the indigenous owners of the land of Biafra, is a clear illustration of the forbidden fruit in the Holy Book{Bible}. It has lots of vindictive prove, in that, those who always claim to be the representative of the people are neither representing them nor giving a listening ear to hearing the needs of the masses whom they are supposedly serving. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) before the invasion of his palace by the Nigerian military which led to his sudden disappearance, urged  Biafrans, especially those in Anambra state to boycott the proposed guber poll by sitting at home on that day.

Leadership according to an ordinary man's definition is "the ability to translate vision into reality". Leadership is embedded in stewardship and selflessness. In Nigeria today, you can not see any politician that is without corruption scandal. Even the Nigerian president Mohammadu Buhari, on his interview in an international media outlet, confirmed that Nigerians are corrupt. Nigerians will always argue that the problem of the country is corrupt leadership, yet every four years they will go out, standing under the harsh hot weather to cast their ballots, hence endorsing corruption through voting in another corrupt leaders. However, if the electorates decides to withhold their franchise by withdrawing their votes as a solution to bringing sanity in the political sphere, then those who parade themselves as leaders, will see reason or even be forced to listen to the cry of the masses, hence do the needful.

Biafrans, through civil disobedience will prove to other African countries that there are breed of Africans that liberated themselves from both internal and external slavery.
The courage of those agitating for Biafra freedom is unfathomable. Biafrans are setting the pace in the whole of Africa as they have taken it upon themselves to pay the price for freedom which calls for emulation for other African countries that may deem it wise to destroy their shackles of slavery.

Leadership is not just having a vision but translating such vision into a reality, to affect the lives of ordinary people in the streets. Leadership is an ability to lead a people, listening to the people being led, understanding the needs and problems of the people. A good leader enjoys the fellowship of the people albeit without material inducement. But the case is different in the demonic entrapment called Nigeria, where the political class feed on the flesh of the poor masses as parasites feeds' on its hosts. The corruption in the Nigerian politics is such that makes every politician to say "politics is a dirty game" and once one becomes an aspirant of any political office, the country becomes a danger zone for his or her family and the next thing will be to send the family members outside the country for fear of the unknown and for safety. Yet, these politicians while their children are having fun overseas, will now engage the youths as political thugs, materially inducing them with money bags and also giving them guns and bullets, ordering them to kill anyone that posses threat to their political ambition.

However, Biafrans world wide have found a leader who is selfless, charismatic, unbribable,  and above all, who speaks the truth and nothing but the truth. A man who has sacrificed all, for demanding for justice, equity and fairness for the people. A man who choosed freedom of his people over internal and external dominance and enslavement. A leader that believes in the total liberation and emancipation of the Biafran people. Biafrans found these type of leadership in Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the indefatigable and impregnated leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).

He rather accepts death instead of ocean of wealth just for the benefit of his people, while his kingdom was raided and many lives and property destroyed in order to silence the people's leader and the voice of the voiceless so as to enthrone  injustice, lawlessness and impunity.

He was  taken away by the invaders in khaki, to an unknown destination and his well-being is still largely unknown. His name is Mazi Nnamdi Kanu {MNK }, the supreme leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra {IPOB }, the Ohamadike 1 of Biafra land, the lion in the tribe of Biafra, the leader of the Eastern Consultative Assembly {ECA} and the worldwide director of Radio Biafra/Television.

As the Nigerian elections are now forbidden in the whole of Biafraland, those that will still go out to cast their ballots are what I call bunch of forbidden electorates, that have decided to urinate and defecate on the graves of all the Biafran heroes and heroines, who have paid the ultimate price for the liberation of the Biafran people. What shall it profit you to mock the dead by coming out on 18th November, billed for Anambra state election, to vote and endorse the killings with your thumb. Don't you know it is within your right to withhold your right to vote or to be voted for? Why not stay in your house and pray for the dead at least, if you can not join others to enjoy the " Ofe Nsala" day. Do not use your thumb to endorse the suffering of your generation and generations unborn. Your vote is your right, so withdrawing it, is enthroning justice and making your supposed leaders to give your voice a chance.

How long are we going to continue in slavery? Why can't we all in one accord cast a vote of no confidence on all these politicians and unchain ourselves from the chains and shackles of servitude and subterfuge. It is time to brase up for the political revolution that is staring us in the face. It is a fight for the liberation of generations to come. It is a political revolution by the people against the oppressive political class. It is a fight for freedom, justice, equity and fairness. The earlier we realise that freedom is not given but taken, the better for all genuine Biafran freedom fighters.

Just as an Igbo adage with an illustration says, "it is the bunches of firewood gathered during the harmattan season that one will make use of during the rainy season, same as the calamity and impending doom that is likely to befall Biafrans if we fail to boycott Anambra state election come 18th of November, 2017. We must know the benefit of boycotting Anambra state election, that will give birth to the long awaited Biafra referendum. We must also know the impending doom of ethnic extermination, should we fold our arms and watch these politicians continue to rule us with impunity and unabated blood shed.

What we want is very unique and simple"freedom for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Benjamin Mmadubugwu, David Nwawuisi, Bright Chimezie, Chidiebere Onwudiwe and other thousands of Biafrans in different Nigerian prison facilities, followed by a date for referendum which will enable us to determine our fate in an enclave called Nigeria.
