Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been advised to be conscious of how he goes about the agitation for the Biafra republic so as not to diminish the gains already made by the struggle.
Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Egbu, the Rt. Rev. Geoffrey Okorafor, gave the advise in Owerri recently at a church service at St. Mark's Church, Eziobodo in Owerri West LGA of Imo State.
Bishop Okorafor specifically urged Kanu and other IPOB members not to disrupt the November 18, 2017 governorship elections in Anambra State, assuring that the elections would not hinder the struggle for Biafra.
According to him, the order by IPOB for Anambra people to boycott the elections would not be in the interest of the people of the state as they would be denied the opportunity to choose their leader.
The Prelate also commended the Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, for admitting that he received N7 billion from the second tranche of the Paris Club refund.
He said that it was a fresh opportunity for the government to pay workers and pensioners their arrears of emoluments, adding that it would be most ungodly to divert the funds.
Rev. Progress Okoroafor, the Bishop's Chaplain, who gave the sermon at the service, urged the faithful to love God and neighbours with all their strength.
He, however, regretted the low turnout to the service, attributing it to absence of fear of God in some members of the congregation.
The cleric cautioned that God frowns at those who stand on the way of progress of His church and urged them to refrain from keeping malice.
