WEDNESDAY- 17th November, 2021: The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has advised all contestants who lost in the recently-concluded Anambra State governorship election to accept the outcome and support the winner for the benefit of the people of Anambra.
The pro-Biafra group, gave the advice in Enugu through a statement issued by its National Director of Information, Edeson Samuel.
The group also warned them against considering litigation, noting that by so doing they would only be enriching their lawyers, while reiterating that there is no hope of them winning in court.
The statement was titled ‘Don’t heat up Anambra State now, MASSOB tells election losers.’
The statement read, “MASSOB commends the people and other residents of Anambra State for adhering to its directives that the election will hold without danger, and defiled all threats by coming out to vote.
“MASSOB wishes to thank all our members in Anambra State who participated in the election.
“We also commend the Independent National Electoral Commission for heeding our encouragement and directives in conducting the governorship election in Anambra state.”
It added, “MASSOB wishes to advise other contestants that lost in the Anambra State governorship election to think twice before approaching courts.
“They should know that their lawyers will always give them hope of winning through the court because of their personal interest.”
