a referendum
to decide whether to be an independent sovereign country apart from

The

decide their fate through a referendum, the same way Britain exercised
its right to leave the European Union without the permission of the
European Parliament or European Council. 

A statement by media and publicity secretary secretary Mr. Emma
Powerful noted that Scotland had also exercised its right to

Powerful said that the United Nations will have the mandate to
monitor the referendum process and ensure compliance with the will of

“The IPOB leadership wants to use this opportunity to let Biafrans
and the entire world know that we want to go and we are calling on
civilized nations of the world and the rest of humanity. We invite the
international community, men and women of goodwill to come and monitor
this peaceful referendum in Biafraland… We Biafrans in pursuit of our
inalienable, irreducible and God-given right to restore our stolen
sovereignty do, hereby state, that we do not require the permission of
the Nigerian state or her government officials to grant us our natural
freedoms,” the separatist spokesman declared.
