It is an exercise well articulated and delivered. The Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), have once again lived up to their billings. The successful boycott of the just concluded Anambra state gubernatorial election of 18th November 2017, has very remarkably gone down in history that the followers of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu have uncompromisingly humbled the Nigerian government and it's political bootlickers in Biafraland. The action was indisputably a mock referendum demonstrated, and the Indigenous People Of Biafra won. It was an action carried out in a grand style as the Biafrans in Anambra state, overwhelmingly boycotted the gubernatorial polls thereby giving a credible analytical judgement of the exercise as a landslide victory to the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).

However, the jaundiced and grossly unethical Nigerian media, contrary to their antecedents to lie and fabrication of stories, have no choice than to acknowledge in their confused reportage, the fact that there was huge voters low turnout. The governorship aspirants themselves were not also left out in their decry of the low voters response to the polls inspite of the political parties' shameful monetary inducements to voters, blatant rigging spree and last minute purported agreement to front a consensus candidate for the election. 


1) Contrary to the somersaulting and desperate antics of the political elites to unduly and variously influence the votes, the criminal silence of the opposition parties in challenging the so-called election results in court, the conspiracy of the brown-envelop Nigerian media to concoct stories, the general outcome of the election proves the fact that power truly belongs to the people. The spirited efforts of Biafrans who clinically boycotted the gubernatorial election against damning security fears falsely created by the Nigerian government, need be highly commended. The expectant result of this civilised action will soon be made manifest.

2) It is also evidential that the politicians cannot practice without the cooperation and clear mandate of the people. The bizarre and uncivilised acts of these politicians and their agents in their evil bids to outsmart one another in public, wooing the electorates with monetary and material gifts are very disheartening. Despite the fictitious results announced by the immoral officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), it should be clearly learnt that the man who eventually occupies the seat, moving around with pump and pleasantry, cannot be, without the people. We know that in Nigeria politics/elections, votes do not count but however, the politicians jostling to rule over the people cannot do so in the vacuum, the number of manufactured election results, notwithstanding. This is how pivotal the input of the citizens are. These amongst other lessons, the uninformed, misinformed and the gullible one-Nigerianists should understandably learn. 

In conclusion, what really then can we fathom as the purpose of election boycott? 

Some persons may find it difficult to grasp with the intent and meaning of the word "BOYCOTT" since to them, Anambra state has had it's gubernatorial election successfully as planned. The word "Boycott' simply means to avoid or stay away from something. In the case of Anambra election, it means a dissent civil exercise taken against the government by the people. It is a constitutional right of citizens not to participate in an event that they perceive inimical to their interest. And that,  Biafrans of good conscience, massively demonstrated as organized by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, under the control of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. 

The unprecedented compliance of Biafrans to the call for the Anambra election boycott, proves unequivocally, that it is the indigenous people of Biafra that truly  owns the land of Biafra and that ownership must never be compromised.
