MASSOB also alleged that “INEC officials noted that they can only
register if they can prove that they weren’t around in the last registration
exercise by providing a copy of their International Passport.
“After much pressure to know why such condition must be attached for
voters’ registration, the INEC officials insisted that the order is from
above and must be followed.
“MASSOB queried what concerns International Passport with voters’
registration for people Nigeria claimed are their citizens? Is this same
INEC system and bottleneck conditions from above working in the
Northern region of Nigeria?

disfranchising the people of Eastern region in the coming elections which
Nigeria thinks will hold.

insists that there may be no Nigeria that will run a general election in 2019
because the artificial expression called Nigeria is already sitting on a
dangerous time bomb that will explode any moment before 2019.

of Biafra than who becomes Senators, Governors or other political
appointment in Nigeria.”
