No Republic can thrive without a flourishing democratic tradition. Luckily Biafrans have a long tradition of celebrating and exercising democratic rights from before the colonial period.

Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB are committed to free and fair democratic elections to create a functioning and fully representative government for a free Biafran Republic.

A sound system of government, including people’s assemblies, representative parliaments and an executive answerable to the people’s elected representatives will help create that flourishing democracy.

An independent judiciary committed to the concept of the rule of law will also guarantee that democracy.

As Nnamdi Kanu has observed, we believe that Biafran self-determination and the democratic systems it will foster, will offer a way forward for the rest of Africa out of the post-colonial impasses that have emerged as a result of lingering colonial power and the rampant corruption that has characterised so many political regimes, not least successive Nigerian governments, over the last sixty years.
