A splinter group of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has warned Ohaneze Ndi-Igbo, Ohaneze Youth Council, Igbo political bigwigs, traditional and religious leaders and other Igbo groups critical of President Muhammadu Buhari to stop demanding any political rights and privileges from the All Progressives Congress (APC) government.
In a statement issued yesterday and made available to newsmen in Awka, the Anambra State capital, the group also defended the fiery lawyer, Mr. Festus Keyamo for describing Igbo leaders and the Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohaneze Ndigbo, as “noise makers who are demanding the Office of Secretary to the Federal Government (SGF)”.
The statement which was signed by the national director for information of MASSOB, Mr. Uchenna Madu further reads: “Even though President Buhari has a personal dislike and animosity against Biafrans, Ndi-Igbo are the architect of their political humiliation in President Buhari’s administration because of their individual selfishness, personal ego and lust for money.
“President Buhari is very, very right in relegating Ndi-Igbo to their current political status in Nigeria’s governance. Some Igbo political, traditional, religious, market and youth leaders blindly bagged their egg of political and economic future in Nigeria in a fragile, demoralised and unsteady leader called Jonathan Goodluck, who glaringly crashed heavily with the Igbo political and economic eggs”.
