IPOB press statement -- January 05, 2019
IPOB SALUTE BIAFRANS AND FRIENDS FOR THEIR COURAGEOUS IN CONTRIBUTING IMMENSELY TOWARDS ITS NEWLY ANNOUNCED HIGH-TECH ECONOMIC INITIATIVE IN BIAFRA LAND.
We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) wish to congratulate Biafrans, friends and supporters of IPOB who contributed immensely, in one way or the other, towards the progress we have made towards the newly announced high-tech Agricultural initiative to be sited in various states in Biafraland. We equally thank individuals and groups that have so far contacted IPOB leadership pertaining to the progress of these initiatives especially those who pledged their support and donated huge plots of land for this landmark project. IPOB is about making the lives of Biafran masses bearable in the climate of poverty driven economic strangulation and political servitude prior to the advent of Biafra and beyond.
These small scale high-tech companies will take care of road and sewage maintenance while Agro-companies will focus on the latest methods of mechanised farming as practised in Israel. These initiatives is as a result of hard work and decisive diplomatic moves designed to position the day to day needs of ordinary Biafrans at the heart of our mission. We have resolved to salvage what is left of the infrastructure in Biafraland to minimise the level of hardship resulting from years of misrule and mediocrity by a political class bereft of ideas. We shall work very hard to reduce the number of unemployed Biafran graduates rendered hopeless by the political arrangement in Nigeria. Therefore we appeal to all right thinking people both home and abroad to join hands in making sure this project is the resounding success we all want it to be. We must not fail to thank those that have so far contacted IPOB leadership in this regard. We welcome their total support, especially those that donated their land and professional expertise for this great work of nation building even within the suffocating confines of the envious, vindictive and unworkable economic climate of the Nigerian state. In a matter of weeks, we shall be recruiting the first batch of graduates of Agric-
Engineering and Agro Economics from the states identified by our leader during his historic New Year’s Day address. This scheme will engage IPOB family members only at its initial phase.
Conscious of the economic importance and historic significance of these projects, we are calling on all reasonable people, at home and in the diaspora, to support this great effort in any way they can to help alleviate the unbearable hardship and pain in our land. This is the clearest indication that our overriding interest is the well-being of our people because we have suffered enough.
