As UNPO releases time-table for Biafra inauguration as 46th member-nation.
Leader of Biafra Independence Movement and Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, BIM-MASSOB, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has expressed his readiness to address the world on the principles of non violence online.
Uwazuruike’s readiness is coming on the heels of a comprehensive time-table released yesterday by the leadership of the UNPO, for July 31 on-line inauguration of Biafra as the 46th member-nation of UNPO and August 2 swearing-in of Biafran leaders at the UNPO Headquarters in Washington DC.
According to Uwazuruike’s press statement signed by his Media Assistant, Elder Chris Mocha, the Secretary-General of UNPO, Ralph Bunche has just released the programmes and agenda of the UNPO’s General Assembly, including the induction ceremony.
He displayed an official letter written by the UNPO to welcome new members to the ceremony.
The letter read in part: “Dear New UNPO Members, we are really looking forward to officially welcoming you to your first UNPO General Assembly meeting. I am sorry that this needs to be online.
The letter further read in part: “By Next year, we will have our 30th Anniversary celebrations and a General Assembly devoted to that, and we will have our typical in- person Covenant signing and flag exchange ceremonies for each of you then. But we do not want to wait to do the final piece of UNPO Membership at the General Assembly”.
The opening plenary session will run from 12.00-14.00 CET on July 31 (we’ve extended this session by 30 mins). At the session, the UNPO President will give an introduction speech (15 minutes), and I ( Bunche) will give a presentation of my report (about 30 mins), and we will then move straight to welcoming you all as members of the UNPO.
Because we won’t have the typical ceremony, we thought what we might do instead is to just give each of you the floor for 15 minutes to talk about who you are, what your struggle is, and why you joined the UNPO and to field one or two questions from
members if they have them.
We will do this alphabetically: 1. Biafra (12.45), 2. Catalonia (13.00), 3. Guam (13.15), 4. Yoruba (13.30), and 5.. Zambesia River Races (13.45).
This session will be streamed on our Facebook page and you are welcome to use it. Thereafter, we will make sure to get everyone’s member pages up and running, first with a holding page and then a more fullsome page that we will develop with you (Catalonia yours is already finished)!
To make this all work, I would appreciate it if you could this week nominate the following (could be the same person):
the speaker at the GA Plenary session the contact person for developing the member page.

South East Now Divided Between Biafra And 2023 Igbo Presidency – Opinion
Biafra or Presidency: One of the geopolitical zones in Nigeria that has complained about marginalisation is the southeastern part of the country.
It appears that the zone is now divided between Biafra and Igbo presidency in 2023.
There are people who believe that Biafra restoration is what is needed to gain prosperity for the people of southeast.
Recall that Nnamdi Kanu, who is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB has consistently say that it is either Biafra or nothing.
There are also politicians on the other hand who believe that Biafra agitations must stop so that the Igbo Presidency comes 2023 will be a reality. To them it is easier to get the presidency than to keep demanding for Biafra which is not feasible.
The people of the region are now divided between the two ideas. Some are saying that what they want is Biafra restoration while others especially the politicians, ohanaeze and some elders are Clamouring for Igbo Presidency which they believed that it’s their turn to rule Nigeria.
The challenge now is that who will unite the two ideas so as to arrived at a United vision?
Will Southeast get it right this time around and for the first time, emerge as president of Nigeria?
Some politicians like Orji Uzor Kalu has been speaking out on what he will do for the country if allowed to serve as president of Nigeria in 2023.
Breaking: “Ejemma” Will Be The Name Of Biafra Currency When Restored – Nnamdi Kanu
Nnamdi Kanu during his broadcast this morning made it clear that when Biafra is being restored, the name of the currency that we will be used will be called “Ejemma” And immediately he said this, there was a lot of questions going round on social media.
People were asking what this Ejemma which will be the Biafra currency means. They really wants to know if this currency has more weight and value more than Dollar, pound and other currencies including the Naira.
As it stands,they are still waiting for more explanations about this currency. And we believe that mazi Nnamdi Kanu will later explain deeply what this money which is going to be the Biafra currency is all about .
Be patient as more details is coming.
Biafra: “No going Back No Matter How Hard The Saboteurs May Try” – IPOB Market Zone 1, Obigbo LGA 3 Declares
Market Zone 1 Family in Obigbo Local Government Area 3 of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Igweocha, Biafraland, has unequivocally affirmed that there is absolutely no going back in their efforts to restore Biafra. This declaration was made during the visit of the LGA Executives to the zone on Sunday 23rd August, 2020.
The family members expressed great hope that Biafra was much closer than imagined, adding that her restoration as a sovereign nation can never be substituted even as the Nigerian state has turned Biafraland as it’s hunting/killing field.
In his address, the Obigbo Area 3 Coordinator, Mazi Eze Ndu, highlighted the fact that IPOB is a moving train and that any Biafran that has not yet embarked, has no other time for enlistment other than now. He further stated that Nigeria is an irredeemably failed state, with a restored Biafra as the only solution.
In her speech, the Zonal Women Coordinator, Mrs. Ezinne Chikezie Magboh affirmed that the fight for Biafra remains one for survival and should not be an avenue for intimidation. “We are women who are ready to die for Biafra”, she stated. The women leader, Mrs. Ezinne Cletus Nkechi on her part, clearly expressed her displeasure with the prevalent unbearable suffering of the Biafran people, maintaining that it was not an experience bargained for and so, must never ever be tolerated henceforth.
The gathering was further greeted with a dedication ceremony of twin babies the Biafran family was additionally blessed with. The entire event had colorful, peaceful and calm atmosphere with the Biafran, Israeli and United States flags flying above with adorable signature.
The meeting successfully came to a close amidst joy of fulfillment, to God’s glory.
