The Biafra Republic Government in Exile, BRGIE, has announced the commencement of a self-referendum to actualize the age-long agitated sovereign nation called Biafra.

In a document by Ekpa Simon, Prime Minister of BRGIE, sighted by our correspondent, the E-voting platform overview said the referendum is part of steps meant to be taken to actualize the Biafra Republic peacefully.

Accordingly, voting will start on February 1 2024, until it reaches a reasonable number of votes; this is because of the challenges of the internet and lack of electricity in rural areas.

The group called on all Nigerians of Igbo extraction to participate in the ongoing online referendum, saying all Biafra citizens have the right to choose their sovereignty freely.

BRGIE states, “Biafrans have demonstrated unparalleled loyalty to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Biafra Government in Exile by sitting at home every Monday for the past two years during our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s court appearances.

“Collectively, through these actions, Biafrans have demonstrated beyond doubt a desire to be free from subjugation and the unprovoked periodic massacre of our people.

“As such, we are taking steps to satisfy the requirements for a peaceful actualization of a quest for self-preservation and independence of the United States of Biafra.

“Through the ongoing delegitimization of Nigeria in Biafra territory(through the Grievance Declaration, institutionalization Declaration and Commitment Declaration) and the legitimization of the Biafra Government, the Biafra Liberation have attained the status for state recognition by successfully setting up institutions required by international law and standards.

“This referendum election provides yet another step towards our freedom. As a Biafra citizen, you will further demonstrate your resolve for an independent United States of Biafra by participating in the Biafra Self Referendum (BSR)”.

The group said to qualify for the exercise, the participant must ” be a Biafran by birth (born of mother and/or father who themselves are Biafrans)” and from 18 years above.

“You must know your State and County, which serve as your precinct.

“You must have a passport photo or a phone to take your passport photo. Your photo must not be more than 2MB”, it added.
