Mr Simon Ekpa, who heads BRGIE as the Prime Minister, disclosed this in a statement through his official account handle on Thursday.

 
Simon Ekpa, the self-acclaimed Prime Minister of The Biafra Republic Government in Exile has made a claim.
 
He claimed that over 30 million Biafrans have voted for self-referendum.
 
The group’s claim is coming amid the grounding of activities across the South-East as residents stayed indoors in observance of sit-at-home order on Thursday, May 30.
 
Mr Simon Ekpa, who heads BRGIE as the Prime Minister, disclosed this in a statement through his official account handle on Thursday.
 
Ekpa claimed that the flare with which Biafrans embraced its E-voting and physical voting showed their enthusiasm for liberation.
 
According to him, the number of Biafrans who have voted for self-referendum in the last four months surpassed the number of voters in the 2023 Nigerian presidential election which stood at 25,286,616.
 
He noted that the voting kicked off in February and ended on May 30, adding that the next stages two and three of Biafra Liberation would commence in June and last till November 28, 2024.
 
BRGIE had cited marginalization, underdevelopment, insecurity and poverty in the southeast region as justification for self-referendum.
 
“Biafra Self Referendum has recorded over 30 million votes on the last day of stage one”, he boasted.
 
BRGIE earlier stated that it is clear that Biafrans are ready to exit Nigeria after decades of marginalization.
 
“It is clear that Biafrans are ready to go. The first stage of the E-voting and physical voting ends in May 2024. There are three stages.

“Stage one will (which commenced February 1, 2024, with the E-voting) end on May 30th, stage two will start on June 1st and end in August, stage 3 starts in September and ends on November 28th, 2024. Indeed, we are on the verge of achieving liberation”, he said.
 
Recall that BRGIE declared May 29 to 31st, 2024, as sit-at-home in honour of the slayed Biafran heroes of the 1967-1970 Civil War in Nigeria.
