The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has challenged various Igbo groups in the country to stop seeking political favours from Buhari, alleging that no amount of pressure would make the president change his perceived hatred of the Igbo nation.
According to a statement in Awka Wednesday by the movement’s Director of Information, Mr. Uchenna Madu, Igbo people were described as the architect of their political humiliation in Buhari’s administration owing to “their individual selfishness, personal ego and lust of money.”
The group categorically listed the Igbo groups that have been calling for political recognition and agitating for appointments to include Ohaneze Ndi-Igbo, Ohaneze Youth Council, political, traditional, religious leaders, among others, alleging that the President paid them “back in their own coin.”
According to the statement, “President Buhari is very right in relegating Igbo to their current political status in Nigeria. Some Igbo political, traditional, religious, market and youth leaders blindly bagged their egg of political and economical future in Nigeria in a fragile, demoralized and unsteady leader called Jonathan Goodluck, who glaringly crashed heavily with the Igbo political and economical eggs.
“President Buhari is just paying Ndi-Igbo back in their own coin as they did not vote for him or his party, the APC because the Igbo men openly and shamefully campaigned for Goodluck Jonathan who politically deceived them.
“As it stands, many Igbo leaders will continue to blindly wallop in Nigeria’s political wilderness until they rediscover the courage of Ojukwu as enshrined in the spirit of Biafra’s consciousness and the unrelenting and undeterred spirit of no retreat, no surrender.”
