Biafra Independent Movement (formerly MASSOB) will hold its elections on the 22nd of February 2016. The February 22 elections will be into wards, provinces, districts, regions and zones in the South-east and South-south.
Founder of the group, Chief Ralph Uwazurike stated that Nigeria would learn a thing or two from their forthcoming elections. Ralph was in Enugu for a sensitization programme for the upcoming election, stating that t”˜Biafran dream would soon be realized‘.
“Our election will not be conducted same way as that of Nigeria; BIM will not give room for election rigging as is the case in Nigeria,” said Uwazuruike, who was represented by Augustina Ugwuoke.”
“We are well prepared; we will teach Nigerians how to conduct crisis-free election. The processes as you can see have commenced. We have also commenced preparations for our census which will take place in the entire Biafra region to ascertain our population.”
“I commend you all for your steadfastness in the struggle as well as donation of lands towards the building of Ojukwu Memorial Library in the Enugu North Senatorial Zone. Your sacrifices will not be forgotten.” Ralph concluded.
