Civil War Anniversary: Why every Biafran should observe sit-at-home – BRGIE

Please share

Biafra Republic Government In-Exile, BRGIE has explained that it is the duty of all Igbos and lovers of the Southeast to honour its May 29 to 31st, 2024 sit-at-home in honour of slayed Biafran heroes of the 1967-1970 Civil War in Nigeria.

The group said this while lamenting that whereas the civil war ended on pages of newspapers, it was yet to end physically, militarily, politically and structurally.

Simon Ekpa, the prime Minister of BRGIE, made this known in a statement on Wednesday.

He said the sit-at-home is necessary to enable the people to vote for the Liberation of Biafra.

He stressed that Biafra Independent is a price every Igbos should sacrifice to actualise.

“The sit-at-home in Biafraland on the following dates to enable Biafrans to vote in the last phase of stage one self-referendum voting.

“29th May, 2024 sit at home and vote; 30th May, 2024 Biafra Day sit at home and vote; 31st May, 2024 sit at home vote.

“In addition, the Biafra Republic Government in Exile is not a political pressure group, unlike others who only agreed to sit at home on May 30.

“BRGIE is very proactive, and we channel all our efforts towards the Liberation of Biafra by every means necessary, so you are not just sitting at home on the 30th but using that to cast your vote.

“The Civil War only ended on pages of newspapers but has not ended physically, militarily, politically and structurally.

“I urge Biafrans across Southeast, South-South to vote for Biafra Liberation and observe the sit-at-home.

“Biafra Self referendum has three stages. The last stage will end in November 2024, while the Declaration convention will start on 29th November and end on 3rd of December, 2024.

“Over Five Million Biafrans have voted in the ongoing self referendum, both online and in the homeland from thousands of polling units across the 40 states,” he stated.
