The Movement Of Actualization Of Sovereign State Of Biafra, MASSOB has made clear, its awareness of the fact that an Igbo man can not be president of Nigeria. They also added that Igbo governors must arise and chase out the Fulani herdsmen who have in recent times been loafing around Igbo land, wrecking mischief upon the land.
This was said by the National Director Of Information, Sunday Okerefor in an interview where he also accused the Federal government of granting an undeserved amnesty of N100bn to the terrorist group, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association Of Nigeria (MACBAN).
He also said that any hopes of an Igbo man clinching the 2023 presidential seat is lost and that Ndigbo are not interested in the office.
He said, “We are not interested in the Presidency; an Igbo man cannot be president again. If the currency is NAIRA, then they will never allow Igbo to rule again. NAIRA as an acronym means, Never Allow Igbo Rule Again. These Igbo politicians are aware of it; they say that the Igbo were defeated in the war; they would say that we should go home and take care of our children and forget about an Igbo president.
He also emphasized on the need for all Igbo governors, monarchs, senators and governors of the region must chase out the Fulani. He said, “So we are telling the Ezes to go and chase these Fulani people from our lands before the end of this month because we are aware that the Federal government has given N100billion to them, and they want to use this money to buy our lands…” He also said their plans are futile because Ndigbo have no lands to sell to them. He also raised alar about how these people are usually armed and the dangers of allowing them parade freely, the bushes of Igbo communities.
