Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) have lambasted the Governor of Delta State, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa for what it described as ‘his sudden acceptance of Igboness because of politics. The group described him as an emergency Igbo man, whose Igboness became expedient to him because he wants to be the Vice President of Nigeria.
According to MASSOB, Governor Okowa has spent more than seven years as governor of Delta State without accepting his Igboness, and had always denied that he is an Igbo because of his loyalty to Fulani – dominated federal government.
Speaking on the matter, Leader of the Biafran group, Comrade Uchenna Madu said “Gov Ifeanyi Okowa in his subjection to the Fulani-dominated federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari has massacred hundreds of non violent pro-Biafra agitators and other innocent youths of Delta State in Asaba, Ogwasi Uku, Agbor, Kwale, Umunede, Warri, all in his state. The blood of innocent youths shed on the streets and villages of Delta State will avenge.”
“Because of Okowa”s nomination as Atiku”s running mate, he now feels that he is representing the position of Ndigbo. MASSOB wish to remind Governor Okowa that Ndigbo are wiser now. Okowa is not representing Ndigbo. The political stake of Ndigbo is no longer in PDP.
“MASSOB warns Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State to stay clear of Igbo land because he is not welcome. Governor Okowa can not accept what he openly denied. Ndigbo are not fools.”
