The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has asked two leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Yahaya Bello to bury their presidential ambitions ahead of the 2023 general elections.
In a statement on Wednesday signed by its leader, Uchenna Madu, MASSOB advised Tinubu, the National leader of the party, and Bello, governor of Kogi state to stop dreaming of leading Nigeria and work towards ensuring Igbo Presidency.
Madu advised all the political parties to ensure that their presidential ticket is given to credible South Easterners to ensure equity, justice, and fairness in the Nigeria project.
He, however, noted that it is solely and sacrosanct for the Southeast zone to produce the next president of Nigeria to douse the call for secession.
He said: “MASSOB warns Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state to bury their presidential ambitions in 2023 because it is solely and sacrosanct for the Southeast zone to produce the next president of Nigeria.
“It is not about sentiment or selfishness to support the Southeast zone; it is the turn of the Southeast zone to produce the next president of Nigeria according to the zoning arrangement.
“Nigeria is already sitting on an explosive time bomb that will eventually explode in 2023 if justice and national integration are not done to the people of Southeast in producing the next president of Nigeria. The Hausa Fulani are seriously plotting to scuttle and frustrate the Southeast zone’s chances to produce the next president of Nigeria.“
