We are not interested in Igbo presidency – MASSOB

by Azeez Adeniyi

The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra has said it is not interested in an Igbo Presidency.

National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun while speaking in Enugu had called on the people of the South East to vote for the APC, stating that the party would guarantee their quest for an Igbo president.

But MASSOB’s National Director of Information, Sunday Okereafor, described Odigie-Oyegun’s statement as laughable.


While speaking with Punch, Okereoafor said Igbo were not interested in Nigeria’s presidency.

He said the movement’s struggle was for the Igbo to have a sovereign nation and not political.

He said former Igbo leader, the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, and the ex-governor of Abia State, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu were denied the Presidency.

He added, “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.”
