The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has cautioned Igbo politicains against wasting their money in pursuit of an Igbo presidency in 2023.
The Biafra secessionist group noted that having an Igbo President in Nigeria was impossible.
This was contained in a statement by Sunday Okereafor, the MASSOB National Director of Information.
According to Punch, Okereafor noted that there is a conspiracy against Igbo becoming President of Nigeria.
“Those people calling them to be ready for the presidency are not sincere. We know that it will turn out to be a waste of funds and a waste of time. The Igbo will never rule Nigeria; so, the Igbo politicians should avoid wasting their money,” he said (as seen on Punch).
“Alex Ekwueme tried it and failed, Rochas Okorocha went and failed, Ogbonnaya Onu went there and failed. Also, Odumegwu Ojukwu tried the presidency and failed; a lot of Igbo tried it and failed,” he added.
The MASSOB spokesman further urged Ndigbo to ignore any politician who seeks for their support and carryon their businesses.
