The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have released a statement where it made it official that it has obtained the signed and sealed document of the preconditions met by the Nigerian Federal Government.
ABACITYBLOG reported that the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, through his social media handle called off the election boycott order, thus, according to him, was following an agreement it had with the FG which has been met.
“Having confirmed this evening that all our preconditions and terms have been met, signed, sealed and delivered; I hereby call-off the election boycott across Biafraland on Feb. 16, 2019. I dedicate this historic victory to the formidable #IPOB family worldwide”, Kanu wrote on twitter.

However, in a statement obtained by ABACITYBLOG, IPOB said the signed document agreeing to their terms and conditions are in their possession and will be made public in due course.
The group further regretted the lateness of the agreement that led to the calling off of the election boycott order, which came at the eleventh hour.
The full statement reads below:
“It is important we notify the world at large and the indefatigable global IPOB family in particular that our supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has called-off the election boycott in Biafraland. After a brief emergency session of the Directorate of State (DOS) late last night, presided over by our leader, where it was determined that all our terms and conditions had been met by those wishing us to lift the ban on voting, it was unanimously agreed that the boycott should be lifted. The signed document agreeing to IPOB terms and conditions are in our possession and will be made public in due course.
“We can therefore state with utmost sense of responsibility and pride that IPOB has accomplished what no other people or group has been able to do in the history of our people. Without prejudice, this will go down as the defining moment when the irreversibibility of the restoration of Biafra was firmly entrenched in the subconscious of all and sundry. As a result of which we can state categorically that Biafra is a lot closer than we think as a result of this.
“Our detractors and opponents have also realised that IPOB is a super-structure that can’t be blackmailed nor intimidated into conceding an inch without getting what they want. We regret the lateness of this agreement that led to the calling off at the eleventh hour but it must be seen as a negotiating ploy designed to wear IPOB down which failed woefully.
“We stood very firm and got every concession we asked for in line with what our leader outlined in numerous recent broadcasts.
