Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has claimed that he has supporters everywhere in the country, including places like Lagos in the South West.
In an an interview with newsmen, Kanu boasted that no political or religious leader has been able pull the type of crowd that he does when he visits any town.
He also stated that the decision to boycott the Anambra election stands.
“What I have seen so far is much enthusiasm. I have seen hope, the rekindling of hope and I have seen the burning desire for genuine change and the call for freedom which is exactly what we are doing and pursuing.
“There is no visiting dignitary, Head of State, political or religious leader that has been able to command the type of crowd that come out anywhere I visit or any town I go to. It has never been replicated or set as a precedence ever before… If I were to visit Lagos, it will be the same, If were to go to Kano, it will be the same thing. People will come out to see me because I preach the truth,” he said.
On the Anambra election, Kanu said: “I gave a speech in Aba, Abia State on Sunday and I made it absolutely clear that the boycott stays. We must boycott election in Anambra State. It is our civic responsibility to do so and that’s what we are going to do – total and absolute boycott, to let the whole world understand the strength of IPOB on the ground, in Anambra State.”
