The Indigenous People of Biafra has denied holding a meeting with the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Andy Uba, over the Anambra State governorship election scheduled for November 6.
The group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, stated this in a statement titled, “We didn’t have any discussion with Andy Uba on Anambra Election,” on Monday.
An online medium had two days ago reported that Uba held a meeting with the secessionist group over the poll.
However, the secessionist group in its statement said, “The attention of the Indigenous People of the Biafra has been drawn to the laughable and disgraceful statement credited to the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Anambra election, Andy Uba, that he met with IPOB members to discuss the forthcoming governorship poll.
“We, therefore, want to make it categorically clear that Andy Uba met nobody in IPOB. IPOB has no interest in the zoo (Nigeria) election, and could not have met with Andy Uba or anybody or politician for that matter to discuss anything pertaining to the election.
“Andy Uba and his likes should leave IPOB out of their politics. Again, Andy Uba could not have possibly accessed the leadership of IPOB. He should therefore stop using IPOB to get cheap popularity.”
