MASSOB To Ohanaeze: We Want Biafra, Not Presidency

Okeke-Ogene had on Tuesday said Ohanaeze Ndigbo was pursuing Igbo presidency because the executive of Ohanaeze led by Nnia Nwodo, had the mandate of Ndigbo to negotiate the Igbo position in Nigeria.

However, Sunday Okereafor, National Director of information for MASSOB, stated on Wednesday that contrary to Okeke-Ogene’s position, the people of the South-East are no longer interested in having a president of Igbo extraction.

Okereafor said Ohanaeze is pursuing its own interest and only want Biafra if their bid for the presidency fails.

“Ohanaeze has no agenda, but only pursuing their interest. They (Ohanaeze) are now shouting Igbo presidency. One of them is saying if they fail to get Igbo presidency in 2023, they will join Nnamdi Kanu to get Biafra.

“The fact is that when they get to that point, one Ibrahim will emerge, and Onu will be the Vice President.

“Ohanaeze is not the voice of the Igbo, MASSOB is the voice of the Igbo. The leaders of the Igbo are in MASSOB. If you present Igbo presidency and Biafra to the Igbo, you will see that the Igbo will pick Biafra and dump Igbo presidency,” he said.
