Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State Of Biafra (MASSOB) have lambasted the duo of two top Enugu-born politicians, Senator Ike Ekweremadu and Jim Nwobodo.
MASSOB, in a statement signed by its National Secretary, Comrade Ugwuoke Ibem Ugwuoke, described their statements against Mr Peter Obi, who is running for President as ‘unguided and provocative utterances’.
MASSOB argued that both men saying Ndigbo will never vote for Obi is a testament that they are political slaves to Hausa Fulani of Northern oligarchy.
The statement read in part:
“It’s very unfortunate that learned men like Ekweremadu and Nwobodo will be used against their own people to say that South East will not vote for Mr Peter Obi.
Who even made them the spokespersons for Ndigbo?
“Ike Ekweremadu and Jim Nwobodo should be ashamed of themselves for been slaves who couldn’t even aspire to be the president. Even when it is the turn of Ndigbo to produce president of Nigeria, they ran away and want to decide where Ndigbo will vote.
“MASSOB observed that Ekweremadu has forgotten so soon what happened to him few years ago in far away Germany, how angry Biafrans dealt with him.
“MASSOB is not surprised over Ike Ekweremadu’s action because we know that he can sell his brothers because of his greed for power, his aim is to return to senate and the only way to get the ticket is to attack his Igbo brother.
“MASSOB wish to warn all Igbo politicians that our non violence nature should not be taken for granted, it is time all Igbo political betrayers in Igbo land will be paid back in their own coins.
“Ike Ekweremadu has been in government power for over twenty years, and still not satisfied. MASSOB will not allow greedy politicians in Igbo land to destroy the future of our next generation because of their selfish desires.
“MASSOB will mobilize Igbo youths, market women/men, town unions and students to vote against bad leadership in entire Igbo land,” the statement concluded.
