A date for the conduct of a referendum for an independent state of Biafra has been fixed and revealed.
The referendum has been slated for September 12 2017.
Document and a certificate have also been given to Biafran agitators for a referendum to be sponsored by the United States government
This news was shared on Facebook by the Indigenous People of Biafra (or IPOB for short) representative in the US, Candy Stallworth.
According to her post, five leaders of the IPOB movement in the US met with American Senators to canvass their support for the referendum.
it could also be recalled that Ms. Stallworth wrote on her Facebook wall in June: “Biafra, the biggest moment we have waited for in history, July 21st 2017, President Donald Trump will declare referendum for Biafra. 5 of IPOB US Leaders will be entering the Whitehouse for the purpose of referendum that day. We have been invited July 21st 2017 for this glorious day”!
Donald Trump, who has been a long-time supporter of Biafra, has granted his political power to the Biafran movement. This development has been a long time coming. For years, members of IPOB and other pro-Biafra organizations have been rallying and protesting, trying to make their voice heard by the Nigerian government.
For example, before the date for the referendum was announced, IPOB threatened to sabotage the government elections in Anambra State. Now that the date for the referendum is set, they are one step closer to the recognition of Biafra.
Biafra supporters and believers rejoice, as they see this referendum as a guarantee that Biafra will rise again. Their positive attitude is also fueled by government officials from other countries. State representatives from Great Britain and Turkey have voiced their support of the movement for the independence of Biafra.
