Dr Doyin Okupe, a former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, said the Indigenous People of Biafra’s postponement of a planned one-week sit-at-home in the South-East demonstrated the group was not a terrorist organisation.

According to the former Presidential Aide, IPOB’s choice to call off the one-week sit-in demonstrated its commitment to the principles of justice, equity, and self-determination for its members.

“It was heartwarming to read that IPOB revoked the Sit-At-Home order, which would have cast a lot of doubt on the Anambra State governorship elections,” Okupe said in the statement.

“This decision by IPOB is a very fair one coming from an organisation that prioritises justice, equity, and self-determination for its people.

“IPOB, in my opinion, has demonstrated indisputably that it is not a terrorist organisation, but rather one that can be invited to a round table to talk with, by this rare act of compassionate and progressive politeness in favour of our democracy.”

“It was in recognition of this fact that I made the appeal a few days ago that it is now time for the Federal Government to create a window of opportunity for peaceful negotiation with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB in the name of peace in the South-East.”
