We Don’t Believe in June 12 Democracy Day Celebration – Simon Ekpa, BRGIE

Posted by Thandiubani on Wed 12th Jun, 2024 - tori.ng

The separatist group said May 30 is rather the recognised day for such celebration and public holiday in Biafra land.

 
The Biafra Republic Government In-Exile of Simon Ekpa has reacted to June 12 Democracy day celebration.
 
According to him, the people of the Southeast do not have anything to do with Nigeria’s Democracy Day celebration.
 
The separatist group said May 30 is rather the recognised day for such celebration and public holiday in Biafra land.
 
This was announced by Prime Minister of the group, Simon Ekpa in a statement on Monday.
 
He said the only recognized holiday is May 30th.
 
Ekpa urged Biafrans to go about their businesses as the aspiration of the Biafra independence declaration is on the right track.
 
According to him, those frustrating Biafra would fail.
 
“The Nigeria public holidays are no longer recognized as an official National Day within Biafra Territory. We only recognized the 30th of May.

“Biafrans will continue to observe international holidays while we look forward to the official national holidays upon declaration of the restoration of Biafra Independent,” he said.
 
Recall that the entire Southeast was under lockdown owing to a sit-at-home order observed on May 30 to honour those who died during the Civil War, between 6 July 1967 and 15 January 1970.
