The Movement for the actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has stated that the Igbos should boycott the 2019 elections because of the killings going on in various parts of the country.
PoliticsNGR gathered that the group also described the promise of an Igbo Presidency in 2023 by the APC as ‘Ridiculous’, pointing out that the current political class will make it impossible for an Igbo man to become president of the country.
The National director of MASSOB, Sunday Okereafor, told newsmen on Sunday that the 2019 Elections will not put an end to the killings of innocent citizens all over the country. In his words;
“The Igbo should not go to vote in the 2019 elections because of the killings in some parts of the country, especially Plateau and Benue. We don’t think the killings will stop now; you are going to see the PDP and the APC fighting each other.”
On Igbo Presidency in 2023, he said;
“Are we (Igbo) fools? Why would they want to deceive us with 2023 presidency? It (2023 presidency) is not possible. After the civil war, the political class printed naira. The word ‘Naira’ means Never Allow Igbo Rule Again.”
