THE NEWSGHOST, NIGERIA – In a statement released yesterday, July 3, 2017, the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) condemned the decision of South-East governors and leaders of Ohanaeze Ndigbo to remain part of Nigeria.
MASSOB is a secessionist movement agitating for the secession of igbo communities from Nigeria and recreation of an independent state of Biafra.
In its statement, signed by its Director of Information, Edeso Samuel, the group described the actions of the South-East governors and leaders of Ohanaeze Ndigbo as: shameful, disgraceful, abomination and act of sabotage, report says.
‘These so-called leaders want to mortgage the destiny and future of these young generation because of their interest and greed. These South-East governors and the Ohanaeze leadership want to play good boy in the hand of their political masters who use them as tools against the wish and desire of Ndigbo and Biafrans.’
Chief George Moghalu, the national auditor of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who spoke at an Anambra Consensus Forum in Awka yesterday, reportedly said that about 50 percent of the property in Abuja and Lagos are owned by Igbos and lamented that there may be no space to accommodate such property in view of the limited land in the South-East.
Moghalu also expressed concern that must of those calling for Biafra secession are ignorant of what they are demanding for, since the same people talking about Igbo presidency in 2023 are the ones talking about Biafra project.
