The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has charged Ndigbo to focus on the emergence of Biafra and not on producing the president in 2023.
The national leader, Uchenna Madu, told The Nation yesterday that “We shall never exchange our Biafra freedom for the position of being a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction.”
Some political parties and Igbo leaders have been campaigning for Igbo to produce the president in 2023 for justice and equity in the country.
Madu, said they were not objecting to anybody’s ambition for Igbo presidency, adding that Igbo could no longer be deceived.
According to him, “MASSOB is not against the crusaders and agitators of Igbo presidency of Nigeria as a balance of equity and justice in Nigeria”
”We view the office of the president of Nigeria as a temporal venture, but actualization of Biafra independence is a permanent existence.
” Nobody has ever died for the struggle for Igbo presidency, but we have died, imprisoned, tortured, killed, dehumanized, mesmerized for the sake of Biafra.
”The Biafra self determination struggle has reached the point of no return. The consciousness and reality of Biafra has sunk very deep in the minds and thoughts of every Igbo person irrespective of his or her political, economic, social, religious and business affiliation or service with Nigeria.”
