The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has lashed out at South East governors for visiting president Muhammadu Buhari to thank him for the second Niger bridge.
According to MASSOB, it is their right that the president must develop their land, so he should not be appreciated.
The MASSOB leader, Uche Madu, disclosed this in a statement yesterday.
His words: “How can they visit Buhari and start thanking him and appreciating him for second Niger bridge? That is the only infrastructure Buhari has undertaken in the South-East zone.
“Buhari has done wonderfully well in the South-West and the North, have they visited Buhari to thank him for what he has done? This is because they believe it is their right that the president must develop their land. Why is it that our governors are making themselves so cheap?
“So, MASSOB, condemns Governor Dave Umahi, in particular. We condemn his cheap presentation. He should stop speaking for Ndigbo. Why would he say he is thanking Buhari for second Niger bridge? Rubbish!
“Has Umahi condemned the Operation Python Dance in the South-East zone? They have come again with Operation Python Dance, they are here to mesmerize and intimidate our people coming back for the Christmas.
“They are here to instil fear in our people who are coming back for Christmas. Umahi is supposed to condemn Buhari for Operation Python Dance 3 and not thanking him for second Niger bridge, what is second Niger bridge? As a matter of fact, from now to next few years, there will be no second Niger bridge.”
Madu also blasted the Secretary to the Federal Government of Nigeria, SGF, Boss Mustapha for saying that the only option for Igbo to have a shot at the presidency in 2023 was to support President Muhammadu Buhari for re-election in next month’s elections.
Mustapha had advised the Igbos to support Buhari’s reelection bid in order to achieve 2023 presidency.
Mustapha’s advice sparked fresh controversies when Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo made a similar appeal and promise to the Southwest region.
Reacting, Madu, said: “The SGF should stop deceiving himself. Even if Buhari wins or loses, the Igbo man will not be president of Nigeria.”
