‘Any Igbo man dreaming of becoming president of Nigeria is only deceiving himself’ -MASSOB



The Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has stated that there was no hope in the forseeable future for an Igbo man to emerge president of Nigeria, saying that any Igbo man dreaming of the position was merely basking in self-deceit.

The group stated that instead of hoping for the unlikely occurrence of an Igbo presidency, effort should channeled towards actualizing the sovereign state of Biafra.

National Director of Information, MASSOB, Sunny Okereafor, who stated this in Aba, the commercial city of Abia State, insisted that the future of Igbo lay in the actualization of an independent state of Biafra which he argued would be free of marginalization and nepotism as well as promotion of one religion above the other.

He said, “Ndigbo should beware that there is nothing like Igbo presidency in Nigeria. It will never work. They have started promising that an Igbo man will become president in 2019 or 2023, but this is just another game to curry the support of the Igbo man for the next election. Whether in 2019, 2023 or 2027, no Igbo man can become president in Nigeria.

“Is this not the same promise they made to handover to Dr. Alex Ekwueme in 1987? Did it come to pass? The Nigerian federation is highly structured Ndigbo; there is too much hostility and hatred against the Igbo man in Nigeria.

“Where is the place of the Igbo man in Nigeria? Ndigbo are third class citizens. Now, Igbo governors are queuing up over who will become Vice President to the North. It is a shame, MASSOB won’t allow this to continue. Any Igbo man dreaming about becoming the president of Nigeria is only deceiving himself. The future of the Igbo man lies in the actualization of Biafra”.

Okereafor alleged that the federal government had recruited former Abia State governor, Orji Uzor Kalu and other willing Igbo politicians to work against Biafra and warned that such efforts would fail.

He also accused President Muhammadu Buhari of double standard, citing his support for the independence of Palestine while suppressing the agitation for Biafra in Nigeria.
