BIM describes attempts to disorganise Anambra elections as anti-Igbo
Biafra Independence Movement, BIM, lead by Ralph Uwazuruike has detatched itself from the agitations against the November 18, Anambra State governorship election.
BIM declared that any attempt to disrupt the Anambra governorship election would hinder development in the state, adding that the call is anti-Igbo.
Addressing the press in Aba, BIM Leader, Abia South zone, Okporie Nkama, asserted that his members, who were registered voters in Anambra State, have been told to come out en masse and vote a candidate of their choice, to ensure continuation of democratic process in the state.

“BIM is not in support of any individual or group calling for the boycott of Anambra governorship poll on November 18. When you boycott the election, you are selling your right and giving a chance to those who don’t want of Biafra to take over.
“Anambra election cannot affect the actualization of Biafra. Anyone calling for boycott is anti-Igbo. We have embarked on sensitisation visits to the 21 local government areas of Anambra State to urge people not to allow themselves to be deceived.
Pro-Biafra Group leader also warned that the would be chaos if the election does not occur.
“There will be anarchy in Anambra if the election does not hold. As an organisation that practises non violence, BIM warns Ndi Anambra to ensure that they turn out en masse to support their choice candidates during the election.”
The BIM leader’s directive is against the instructions of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who directed Biafrans to boycott the governorship election process.
