ENUGU— The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Tuesday, in Enugu, accepted his election as the new leader of the Eastern Consultative Assembly, ECA.

Mazi George Onyeibe, the IPOB African Continental Representative who stood in on behalf of the IPOB leader said he feel highly honoured for the confidence reposed in him by the people, adding that he hopes to gain their full support in the pursuit of a referendum that will determine the future of the people.

The Eastern Consultative Assembly, ECA, is a coalition of groups with progressive minded individuals believed to be championing several causes for the betterment of the people of the Eastern region.

Elliot Ugochukwu-Uko as the Secretary, Rev. Fr. John Odeh, Publicity Secretary, Dede Uzor A. Uzor as his Assistant Publicity Secretary while ECA Patrons remain, Prof. Ben Nwabueze, Dr Alex Ekwueme and Archbishop Anthony Obinna.

In his acceptance speech shortly after the election, the IPOB leader said, “With the greatest humility, I accept this clear demonstration of confidence you have reposed in me and wish to thank the entire membership and leadership of ECA for their doggedness in building a wonderful coalition dedicated to the defence of truth at a time when most are too terrified to stand up and be counted.

“I am honoured by this election; I hope all the affiliate groups in this coalition will soon join hands with us in our peaceful and non-violent pursuit of a referendum that will allow the people decide their future.

“The horrendous injustice visited on us daily by our oppressors have since gotten to a point where we can no longer tolerate the position of eternal slavery, which they carefully crafted for us and have ruthlessly executed over the years. 

Our children today and generations to come do not have a future. Our youths are despondent, our once truthful and outspoken elders frightened and silenced, our politicians compromised, our leaders bought over. Our present status as race and a people is one of utter hopelessness and servitude.

“Our only hope for the future lies in a peaceful plebiscite that will settle once and for all time the burning issues that confront us today.
“I commend the ECA and strongly believe that I will not let you down. Once again, I say thank you for this great honour.”
