The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSAOB, has told politicians from the South-East not to waste their money on the 2023 presidency.
MASSOB’s National Director of Information, Mr. Sunday Okereafor, gave the advice in an interview with the Punch, saying the plot to ensure that no Igbo would ever assume the position of President began after the civil war.
He said having a President of Nigeria from the region is impossible, adding that any Igbo, who decided to gun for the presidency in 2023, would only be wasting his or her money.
Okereafor said, “Those people calling them to be ready for the presidency are not sincere. We know that it will turn out to be a waste of funds and a waste of time. The Igbo will never rule Nigeria; so, the Igbo politicians should avoid wasting their money.
“Alex Ekwueme tried it and failed, Rochas Okorocha went and failed, Ogbonnaya Onu went there and failed. Also, Odumegwu Ojukwu tried the presidency and failed; a lot of Igbo tried it and failed.”
The MASSOB spokesman asked Igbo youths to engage themselves in meaningful ventures and shun any politician from Igbo extraction seeking their support for Igbo presidency.
According to him, the Igbo in government only went there to get money.
Nobody will take them seriously when the time to occupy critical positions in government comes, he said.
