Biafra: MASSOB Gives 'Massive' Warning To Members
The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) was warned the Igbo community to beware of their romance with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
A statement on Monday warned especially politicians to be careful how they relate with the former president, stating:
His current political antics, romance and friendship in Igboland is suspect and dangerous to the political survival of the Ndigbo in Nigeria.
During his eight-year tenure as Nigeria's President, he consciously and willfully created political problems for Ndigbo. He initiated several political frustrations against Abia, Anambra, Enugu and Imo state during the tenure of Orji Uzor Kalu, Chinwoke Mbadinuju and Chimaraoke Nnamani.
Obasanjo denied Igboland infrastructural development, he embarked on political witch-hunt of our people. He also mesmerised Ndigbo by changing Igbo senators five times in office of the Senate President.
Today, Igbo governors of Abia, Ebonyi and Enugu states are celebrating him by iniviting him to inaugurate projects in their respective states.
During his eight-year rule, he never visited Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu or showed concerns to his position as Igbo leader.
