NO RUNNING HOME! Igbos Living In The North To Pay Heavy Fine If They Go Back To South East During 2019 Elections

The administrative umbrella organisation of Igbo residents in the Northern states and the federal capital territory, the Igbo Delegates Assembly, IDA, has barred people of the South-East residing in the North from traveling to their states of origin during the 2019 general elections.

IDA warned that any person, who flouts the directive, would be fined an undisclosed amount of money.

“There is no need for us to go home at every election because if you do that you will automatically disenfranchise yourself.

“We have done a lot of sensitisation. We have also educated our people on this and we all agreed. That is why we decided to place an embargo. And if you travel, IDA will fine such person(s).”
