As a result of the President’s visit to the South-East region of Nigeria, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has said that President Buhari lacks a good understanding of Nigeria’s diversity and that the Igbos will not be fooled by his visit to the south-east.
MASSOB is not happy at the way they are being treated by the government, making mention of groups that have caused havoc in the country but were never seen as a terrorist group; groups like Fulani herdsmen who are killing, destroying farms and burning houses, Mr. President called them criminals.
How about the Arewa youths who gave quit notice to Ndigbo, they were addressed as youths, but when MASSOB said we are no longer interested in this political entity Nigeria, we are tagged, terrorists.
The National Director of Information, MASSOB, said that MASSOB under the leadership of Uchenna Madu disagreed with President Buhari on his Abakaliki speech where he described Biafra agitation as senseless propaganda.
Some political observers described the president visit the south-east a movement to building a relationship ahead of the forthcoming election in 2019.
