Anambra State governorship election, scheduled for the 6th of November 2021, by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) may witness a serious setback. This is sequel, to the threats of the Sit-at-home order given by the Indeginious People of Biafra (IPOB).

Already, at least 12 candidates are in the race for the coveted governorship seat of Anambra State and the list of contenders for the office, include Ekene Alex Nwankwo(A), Doreen Ifeoma Maduka - Arisa(AA), Obi Sylvester Chukwudozie (AAC), Akachukwu Sullivan Nwankpo (ADC), Prince Ume -Ezeoke Afam Douglas (ADP), Emmanuel Andy Uba(APC) and Chukwuma Charles Soludo(APGA).

But IPOB has declared a total lockdown in all the South East States, from November 5th to 10th, to compel the Federal Government to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu. The group has also threatened to frustrate the Anambra State governorship election as a strategy to actualise its goals and force Federal Government to hearken to its request.

However, I wish to ask these following pertinent questions:
1. To whose detriment or consequence if the election is stalled as threatened by separatist group?

2. Is it not an infringement on the political rights of other Anambra indigines by IPOB? Since some people are willing to exercise their franchise, regardless of the circumstance at the moment. 

3.Are you going to ask Charles Soludo, MBA and other contestants in the forthcoming election to join such course or not to exercise their franchise because Nnamdi Kanu is in detention?

4. Is IPOB not equally guilty of the same thing it is criticising the Federal Government, by encroaching on the political, social and economic rights of other South Easterners?

5. Can sit-at-home order to frustrate the Anambra Election in the real sense of it,  automatically compel the Federal Government to release Nnamdi Kanu?

6. Who suffers it the more, if a State of Emergency is declared in Anambra State by the Federal Government? will that affect Buhari/Federal Government at all?

Sincerely yours, I acknowledge every struggle or protest that brings positive change and development, through civility and sophisticated strategy. Anything short of such, is practically chaotic, stochastic and sicknical. 

You  can not continue to destroy your economy, socio-cultural heritages/values and above all your political rights, by being "delusional" or for self aggrandizement. 

I wish to admonish IPOB to please have a rethink and stop misleading the vulnerable indigines of the South East.

God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria.
