This was contained in a statement   jointly signed by the Deputy Leader, The Eastern Consultative Assembly (ECA), Chief Maria Okwor  and Founder of IYM, and Deputy Secretary of Igbo Leaders of Thought. ILT, Evangelist Elliot Ugochukwu- Uko, in Enugu, yesterday.The statement entitled, ‘Another successful quasi referendum,’  read:

“Another successful quasi referendum,’  read:  “Again, our people have spoken with one voice in completely paralysing our region by staying at home yesterday in demonstration to the world, where we stand. Despite intimidations, harassment and threats from certain quarters, our people resolutely stayed indoors yesterday.

“We commend our people, for standing on the truth. This is particularly interesting  inspite of the spirited effort by government apparatchik to pervert the truth through inducement and blackmail. We congratulate the people of Eastern Nigeria. Government owned media reports hundred percent compliance in Aba, Nnewi, Onitsha, etc and over 70% compliance in other areas, the people have spoken.

“One year ago, after another successful sit-at- home, some people issued a quit notice and mounted pressure which led to unprovoked attack at Afaraukwu, in active connivance with collaborators, to kill innocent  souls whose only crime is that they have lost faith in Nigeria as currently constituted and therefore seek freedom from relentless oppression by a ruthless oppressor who proudly values cattle over human life
