The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has vehemently condemned the statement issued by the Ohanaeze Ndigbo over its mandate for Ndigbo.
The leader of Ohanaeze in Anambra State, Chief Damian Okeke-Ogene, had in a statement few days ago noted that the mandate of the apex Igbo group is to achieve an Igbo Presidency and not the Sovereign State of Biafra.
Okeke-Ogene had noted that the mandate of the President-General of Ohanaeze, Chief Nnia Nwodo, was to negotiate the Igbo presidency.
MASSOB however noted that contrary to Okeke-Ogene’s position, Ndigbo were no longer interested in having a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction.
“Ohanaeze has no agenda, but only pursuing their interest. They (Ohanaeze) are now shouting Igbo presidency. One of them is saying if they fail to get Igbo presidency in 2023, they will join Nnamdi Kanu to get Biafra.
“The fact is that when they get to that point, one Ibrahim will emerge, and Onu will be the Vice President.
“Ohanaeze is not the voice of the Igbo, MASSOB is the voice of the Igbo. The leaders of the Igbo are in MASSOB. If you present Igbo presidency and Biafra to the Igbo, you will see that the Igbo will pick Biafra and dump Igbo presidency,” Sunday Okereafor, the National Director of Information for MASSOB, said.
