The members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) in Igweocha Obigbo Market Zone (Rivers State) urges Biafrans and the good citizens of Nigerians who are fed up with the corrupt system of Nigeria to Sit-At-Home come 16th February 2019, the contraption presidential election. On the 3rd February 2019, the IPOB families in Port Harcourt, Rivers State matched on the streets of Biafraland to evangelize the good news of Biafra Referendum and the needs to boycott the fraudulent electoral processes.

The formidable Biafran women with their various placards have inscriptions written on various placard “Biafra Is Future Hope for Our Children and Generations to Come Say 'No' To One Nigeria – Do Not Vote”. “Biafra Freedom Ends Nigerian Soldier/Fulani Herders Killings in Biafraland – SIT-AT-HOME on 16th February 2019’ Our Referendum Date. The government of Nigeria must know that power belongs to people and not the elites. No more voting in Biafraland. The state of Nigeria must be collapse because is a crime against humanity.

We are not voting, indeed we are tired of voting, since the inception of the entity, we have been voting strangers as leaders and nothing tangible to show for its decades of voting if not continuous looting of the treasury. The Indigenous People Of Biafra led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has come to end this crime against humanity. For months now, our youths were out of school because of ASUU strike. The government is yet to do anything about it because their children are all studying abroad with a better environment suitable for learning. Their major concerns are to get our votes to perfect their Islamic agenda. Every right-thinking citizen must stand up for their right. Say No To Election In Biafraland.  Biafra freedom is inevitable.

We the resolute and fearless Biafrans in Biafraland are urging the people of goodwill, friends of Biafrans and lovers of freedom to support the Independent state of Biafra. Let me pick a leaf from United Nations Security Council Summary of what election boycott is all about.

An election boycott is the lawful refusal to honour an election by a group of voters, each of whom abstains from voting, for varying legitimate reasons. 
As witnessed in several member Nations of the United Nation in the past, the legal act Boycotting may be used as a form of political protest where voters feel that electoral fraud is likely, or that the electoral system is biased against its candidates, that the polity organizing the election lacks legitimacy, or that the candidates running are very unpopular.

In jurisdictions with compulsory voting, a boycott may amount to an act of civil disobedience. Alternatively, supporters of the boycott may be able to cast blank votes or vote for "none of the above". Boycotting voters may belong to a particular regional or ethnic group. A particular political party or candidate may refuse to run in the election and urges its supporters to boycott the vote.

When an aggrieved people legally seek to exit an existing Nation all to become a new independent better Nation, for cogent reasons towards healthier better living, it is termed as Self Determination. This act is lawfully backed up by the United Nations and all her allies. Hence the aggrieved people are at liberty to be apolitical, so to drive home their grievances and resolve to become an independent Nation, via repeated Election Boycotts, in the scenario where the existing Nation is unwilling to conduct a plebiscite for the grieving section of the existing Nation.

Also, in this case of a referendum/ plebiscite, an election boycott may be used as a voting tactics, by opponents of the proposition for self-determination. If the referendum requires a minimum turnout to be valid, the boycott may prevent this quorum being reached and frustrate the demands of those seeking self-determination via public voting.

In general elections, ethnicities, tribes, religions, individuals and political parties will often boycott in order to protest the ruling party's unfavourable policies with the hope that when voters do not show up the elections will be deemed illegitimate by international observers. Most Boycotts in civilized history succeeded via well negotiated external observations, influence and alliances.

The UNSC can activate a floor of political cum economic sanctions at the UNGA, when the repeated boycotts by the aggrieved section of an existing Nation are verified to be related to the following:
1. Human right violations.
2. Ethnic cleansing.
3. Political Nepotism.
4. All acts of Terrorism.
5. Violent Religious Intolerance.
6. Premeditated Genocide.

The sanctions will initially serve as a warning but when the sanctioned Nation remains defiant, stiffer sanctions may follow and international aid given to the oppressed section of the sanctioned country; to quell their suffering permanently, prevent an outbreak of war and reconcile the neighbouring Nations after the plebiscite favours the oppressed Nation to become independent.

Come 16th February 2019, Biafrans in Biafraland, good citizens of Nigeria and enemies of Biafra must Sit-At-Home. Relax and enjoy “Ofe Ukazi” with your families and friends indoor. All hail Biafra the children of light.
