The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, explained that it is not begging to dialogue with the Federal Government over Biafra's independence.

IPOB explained that Biafra's referendum was sacrosanct and it is not begging the Federal Government for negotiations.

Emma Powerful, spokesman of IPOB, stressed that the United Nations charter gives people the right to chart their own political future when their rights are threatened.

Powerful made the remark in response to the backlash that followed IPOB's remark of expressing readiness to dialogue with the Nigerian government.

A statement by Powerful reads: "Self-determination is an inalienable right of all Indigenous People according to the United Nations.

"When political and economic survival of the indigenous people are threatened, the United Nations charter gives them the right to chart their own political future in what she referred to as self-determination through a democratic process called referendum.

"This is a follow-up to the press statement regarding or titled 'IPOB is ready for dialogue and discussion with Nigeria government if they are ready'.

"We never beg for dialogue or discussion with Nigeria, the options are left for them to decide, IPOB worldwide is ready anytime they are ready we don't want people to see that statement as we are begging for dialogue or discussion, the Biafra referendum is sacrosanct and nothing will stop it to usher in Biafra restoration and independence.

"We saw so many wrong comments from mostly those enemies from other tribes who think they can bring IPOB down.

"Never they think that IPOB is begging Nigeria for dialogue, some people think that IPOB is hard to believe in peaceful dialogue and discussion."
