The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB says it is not interested in an Igbo Presidency.
In an interview with Punch, MASSOB’s National Director of Information, Sunday Okereafor described the statement made by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun as laughable
Oyegun had earlier aid the party would guarantee their quest for an Igbo president for the South East region of the country.
He explained that the movement’s struggle was for the Igbos to have a sovereign nation and not for political reasons.
"The claim by the APC national chairman that the party will use Igbo Presidency to finally kill the PDP in the South-East is laughable.
"Nigeria has never had Igbo presidency in its agenda. So, Igbo man can never be President in Nigeria in 500 years.
"The Igbo elite should understand this. MASSOB does not believe in any political party in Nigeria.
"We believe in the freedom of Biafra and not the campaign for the Presidency to come to a person from Igbo extraction," he said.topics from
