Igbo political future not dependent on you, MASSOB replies Buhari


www.odogwublog.com reports that Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his recent comment that "the political future of Ndigbo  is dependent on" his re-election in 2019, dismissing the President's remarks as empty political rhetoric.


Recall that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation ( SGF), Boss Mustaphar who  represented Buhari at a mega rally organised by the All Progressive Congress at Dan Anyiam Stadium Owerri, Imo State, said Buhari's re-election in 2019 would decide the political fate of Ndigbo.

But MASSOB in a swift response yesterday, dismissed the statement credited to the President as " hypocritical and deceptive" meant to deceive only the gullible.

A statement personally signed by MASSOB Leader, Uchenna Madu, said Buhari did not have "what it takes to decide the political future of a multi- talented, highly innovative and populous nation like the Igbo."

The statement described the comment  from  Buhari "as another hypocritical plan to deceive the people of Biafra", but added that the people " are wiser and mote politically educated now than ever".

It read in part: " Our political future and every other futuristic existence of Ndigbo can never be depended or attached to president Mohammed Buhari or any other Hausa Fulani man. 

"We are not bothered much about the devilish statements because the people of Biafra are no longer easier to penetrate with frivolous, empty, deceitful and hypocritical statements. "

According to the statement Ndigbo are more preoccupied with the restoration of Biafra Republic than producing  the President of Nigeria under the current skewed political structure.

"Even the political errand men of president Mohammed Buhari in his APC from Biafra land can no longer perform positively because our people are more conscious of Biafra than Igbo political interest in Nigeria. 

"It is abomination and a taboo in Igbo land to say or think that Ndigbo will depend or rely on Hausa Fulani man for political, economical, academical, social, religious survivals unless president Mohammed Buhari is referring to the misguided and uncultured Igbos in APC."

MASSOB vowed to collaborate with other pro- Biafra groups to frustrate Buhari's second term bid, and ultimately liberate Ndigbo and other ethnic nationalities in Biafra land from "the political bondage called Nigeria".

"MASSOB will work tirelessly with other pro independence movements to frustrate and stop the election processes in Biafra land. 

"We can no longer continue to function on a fraudulent 1999 constitution that was imposed on the citizens by Hausa Fulani military government."
