Igbo Deserve Marginalisation By Buhari, Says MASSOB

A faction of Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has decried the hue and cry of Igbo leaders over alleged marginalization in appointment into sensitive positions by President Muhammadu Buhari, saying that Igbo are being paid in their own coin for not voting for the president.

In a statement by the factional National Director of Information of MASSOB, Uchenna Madu, the group said “though President Buhari has a personal dislike and animosity against Biafrans, Ndi-Igbo are the architect of their political humiliation in President Buhari’s administration because of their individual selfishness, personal ego and lust for money”.

“President Buhari is very, very right in relegating Ndi-Igbo to their current political status in Nigeria governance. Some Igbo political, Traditional, Religious, Markets and Youth leaders blindly bagged their egg of political and economic future in Nigeria in a fragile, demoralized and unsteady leader called Jonathan Goodluck, who glaringly crashed heavily with the Igbo political and economic eggs”.

Madu said “President Buhari is just paying Ndi-Igbo back in their own coin as they did not vote for him or his APC”, and wondered why leaders of Ohaneze Nd’Igbo, Igbo leaders, political leader and religious leaders and other social groups should be outspoken about Igbo marginalization.

“These selfish Igbo men are the real enemies of Ndi-Igbo not President Buhari.

These Igbomen openly and shamefully campaigned for Goodluck Jonathan who politically deceived Ndi-Igbo even Chief Ralph Uwazuruike (Factional MASSOB leader) and self- acclaimed agitator/liberator of Biafra shamefully and openly campaigned for Goodluck Jonathan to continue in office as Nigerian President till 2019, while impoverished MASSOB members and Ndi-Igbo earnestly want Biafra before 2015 as Nigeria Amalgamation expired in 2014”.

“Partisan politics has diminished Ohaneze Ndi-Igbo”, he added.

Madu said the silence of these selfish Igbo political leaders since President Buhari’s administration “is an open acceptance of political defeat and self- condemnation associated with political inferiority complex.

He predicted that Igbo political, traditional, religious and economic leaders will continue to blindly wallow in Nigeria’s political wilderness until they rediscover the courage of late Biafran leader, Dim Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu as enshrined in the Spirit of Biafran consciousness, that is, “the unrelenting and undeterred Spirit of no surrender no retreat”.

    You forgot to remind them of the fact that an Ndigbo son was Buhari’s Presidential running mate in 2003 and another one in 2007. Just as in 2015 election, his Presidential ambitions were outrightly rejected by Ndigbo in the two previous case.
