Why Most Igbos Will Vote Against Biafra If Referendum Is Conducted Today In The South East Region.

For a long time now, several groups like IPOB, MASSOB and others have been agitating for a separate country known as Biafra in the south east region of the country. IPOB for instance on several occasions asked the federal government of Nigeria to conduct a referendum in the south east region, so as to know whether Igbos want to remain in Nigeria or not.

Based on that note, I really think that most Igbos will vote against Biafra if referendum is conducted today in the south east region of the country.

Why did I say so? I said so because most Igbos will be afraid of being intimidated by their fellow Igbos when Biafra comes, so they will have no other option than to vote against Biafra.

As we all know, people living in the south east region are now living in fear, because of the activities of the IPOB. They no longer go out on Mondays as a result of compulsory sit at home order that was declared by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, across the five south eastern states and those who previously disobeyed the order either lost their lives or their properties.

As it stands now, most Igbos are tired of the activities of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, but they simply don't know what to do. So tell me how such persons will be able to vote for the Biafra if referendum is to be conducted by the federal government today? I am optimistic that such persons will definitely vote against Biafra because they don't want to be harassed or intimidated.

I know that some people may kick against what I have just said here, but the fact still remains that we are all entitled to our own individual opinions and I have just aired mine here.

So, what is your take on this particular issue? You can drop your comments and opinions below.
