ENUGU – The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has foreclosed the possibility of any Igbo Man or Woman emerging Nigeria President either in 2019 or 2023.
MASSOB said the impossibility was because, “Igbo leaders are political slaves in Nigeria.”
The group rather insisted on the actualization and restoration of Biafra sovereignty through none violent methods.
In a statement Tuesday by leader, Uchenna Madu, “The way Nigeria is structured politically, it will be very hard for Igbo man to be president of Nigeria. The structure almost reduced Ndigbo to a minority tribe in Nigeria but history has always proved that Ndigbo is the largest ethnic nationality in Nigeria.
“Even though five states were accorded to Ndigbo in Nigeria but we’re the largest ethnic group in every state after the indigenes of that state, in all the Nations of the world.
“Ndigbo are also the largest Nigerian ethnic nationality, even during the yuletide, all the states in Nigeria become temporal deserts and inhabitable because Ndigbo that make every state thick returned to their native hometowns.
“Even with our population and handshake with some geopolitical zones, it will be hard for the Igbo to be Nigerian president because there is a grand plot against Ndigbo in Nigeria. It will still be difficult for Igbo man to be president in Nigeria.”
Madu said the only factor that will force Nigeria to cede the Nigeria presidency to Ndigbo is the total support of Biafra actualization struggle “because that’s the only working panacea that attract regional interest to the presidency.”
Madu stated that the Igbo will no longer crave for the presidency of Nigeria but will continue to focus on the survival of the Igbo people and remain consistent in self determination struggle for Biafra actualization and restoration.
On the issue of President Mohammadu Buhari, Madu said that “Ndigbo has never benefited from Buhari’s administration because we know that it’s not possible. President Buhari has is a complete negative reaction against the existence of Ndigbo.
His anti-Igbo policies including his tribal and religious hatred of Igbo Christians is a complete proof of his personality.”
