The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has berated President Muhammadu Buhari over claims that Igbo Presidency depends on their support for his 2019 re-election bid.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha had said people of the South East can only produce a President if they support Buhari in 2019.
Reacting to the comment, leader of MASSOB, Uchenna Madu said Buhari’s claim that the “political future of Ndigbo depends on him was another hypocritical plan to deceive the people of Biafra.”
In a statement issued yesterday, Madu, noted that “our political future and every other futuristic existence of Ndigbo can never be depended or attached to President Mohammed Buhari or any other Hausa Fulani man.
“Even the political errand men of President Mohammed Buhari in his APC from Biafra land can no longer perform positively because our people are more conscious of Biafra than Igbo political interest in Nigeria.
“It is an abomination and a taboo in Igbo land to say or think that Ndigbo will depend or rely on Hausa Fulani man for political, economic, academic, social, religious survivals unless President Mohammed Buhari is referring to the misguided and uncultured Igbos.
“MASSOB will work tirelessly with other pro-independence movements to frustrate and stop the election processes in Biafra land. We can no longer continue to function on a fraudulent 1999 constitution that was imposed on the citizens by Hausa Fulani military government.”
