The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra,MASSOB, has said that the failure of late Biafra Warlord, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwus’ wife, Mrs (Iyom) Bianca Ojukwu at clinching the All Progressives Grand Alliance,APGA, ticket for the Anambra South Senatorial zone ticket was out of arrogance and disobedience.
In a statement in Awka, the Anambra state capital yesterday, Leader of the group, Comrade Uchenna Madu strongly advised Iyom Ojukwu to stop associating MASSOB in her unnecessary quarrels with APGA leadership over the long concluded state primaries in which she was rejected by the party.
Madu expressed the view that the leadership of APGA should not be blamed or castigated because of the failure of Iyom Bianca Ojukwu at the primaries, adding, “she failed because she disobeyed her husband and our ancestors who have seen the memorization she will encounter in the red chamber of National Assembly. Her failure is a divine act”.
The group maintained that they do not have any quarrels or disaffections with APGA leadership concerning their last Anambra South senatorial primary election in which Mrs Bianca Ojukwu lost to Prince Nicholas Ukachukwu.
Comrade Madu however assured that MASSOB under his selfless leadership will never relent or derail in defense of the integrity, honour and respect for Dim Ikemba Nnewi, the Eze Igbo Gburugburu.
MASSOB further disassociated itself from a statement making the rounds in which Bianca Ojukwu attacked APGA and its leadership, saying the use of MASSOB as a backup is deceit, and unwarranted.
According to him, “We understand that Iyom Ojukwu attended a function of Ralph Uwazuruike led Biafra Independence Movement,BIM, where Bianca Ojukwu attacked APGA and its’ leadership using MASSOB as a backup.
“We wish to clarify that MASSOB celebrated the Ojukwu memorial anniversary in churches across Biafra land on last Sunday, not in Uwazuruike’s house in Owerri. MASSOB are not against APGA or any other political party.
“As a foremost pro Biafra movement, preaching non violence, and not a political party, MASSOB is not interested or involved in Nigeria politics or political party affairs, but we are huge factor to be reckon with in affairs of Eastern region and wherever Ndigbo resides”.
