The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) on Monday stated that it is agitating for a new nation, Biafra and not restructuring.
This is contained in a statement issued in Abakaliki by MASSOB director of information, Comrade Edeson Samuel.
He dissociated the group from the stance taken by governors of Southeastern states and the Ohaneze Ndigbo.
He opined that they, the governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo leaders, do not have the mandate to make such a decision for all Igbos.
MASSOB rejects totally the decision taken by Southeast governors and the leadership of ohaneze Ndigbo in their meeting last week, which they said that they will remain in Nigeria.
It is shameful, disgraceful, abomination and act of sabotage for them governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo to take such dangerous decision for over 50million Ndigbo and Biafrans without their consent.
These so-called leaders want to mortgage the destinies and future of these young generations because of their interest and greed. These South east governors and the ohaneze 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 Biafran.
Our so-called leaders have never called meeting of various group where every group will contribute ideas in respect of the quit notice served Ndigbo by Arewa youths. Our brothers from South west, the Afenifere and other groups like OPC in south west are busy organizing themselves, the ACF and their youth wing have been holding secret meetings, but our so-called leaders are busy making much noise in the media.
These governors and the acclaimed Igbo leaders who prefer Nigeria cannot send their families to Kano, Maidugri, Zamfara, Sokoto and Bornu state.
Time has come when MASSOB and other genuine pro-Biafra agitators will no longer allow these self-centered greedy politicians to step their foot in Igbo land. Our non-violence should not be taken for granted.
MASSOB will no longer accommodate these Abuja politicians that have no political values in Igbo land. MASSOB will not accept restructuring or 2014 National conference. Is Biafra or nothing. The governors and Ohaneze leadership cannot decide for us.
