The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has rejected calls by leaders of the South-East chapter of the All Progressives Congress, who urged pro-Biafra groups in the zone to ditch the agitation for the actualization of Biafra.
The pro-Biafra group vowed not to abandon the struggle while urging Igbos and the members of the other ethnic nationalities in the South-East to disregard the advice of the Igbo APC chieftains.
MASSOB’s National Director of Information, Samuel Edeson, released a statement, saying the South-East APC leaders were only after their personal interests.
“MASSOB wishes to reply the South-East APC over the call on MASSOB/IPOB to abandon the idea of agitating for the independence of Biafra and to join them in building Nigeria.”
“MASSOB is calling on the Ndigbo and all ‘Biafrans’ to disregard these Abuja politicians who have no conscience. All they are interested in are their personal interests.”
“None of them can beat his chest boldly and say that this is what I have done for the Ndigbo. While calling MASSOB and IPOB to drop the Biafra agenda, they left Fulani herdsmen that have been killing our people, raping our women and destroying our farmland at will.”
“We will no longer allow these Abuja politicians to come to Igboland and deceive our people in the name of fighting for Igbo presidency. None of these men who claimed to be heavyweight politicians has ever challenged the evil done to our people.”
“The Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, all the federal roads and railway lines in the South-East are deathtraps.”
“They have never for one day spoken against the abandoned projects in Igboland. They have now run to APC where their sins will be covered.”
