Beware of Obasanjo, MASSOB tells Igbo

The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra on Monday warned theIgbo to be wary of their romance with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

It described the closeness of Obasanjo to some Igbo leaders as ominous.

It warned the Igbo, especially politicians, to be careful of their relationship with the former President.

A statement on Monday by the leader of MASSOB, Uchenna Madu, stated, “His current political antics, romance and friendship in Igboland is suspect and dangerous to the political survival of Ndigbo in Nigeria.

“During his eight-year tenure as Nigeria’s President, he consciously and wilfully created political problems for Ndigbo.

He initiated several political frustrations against Abia, Anambra, Enugu and Imo states during the tenure of Orji Uzor Kalu, Chinwoke Mbadinuju and Chimaraoke Nnamani.

“Obasanjo denied Igboland infrastructural development, he embarked on political witch-hunt of our people. He also mesmerised Ndigbo by changing Igbo senators five times in office of the Senate president.

“Today, Igbo governors of Abia, Ebonyi and Enugu states are celebrating him by inviting him to inaugurate projects in their respective states.

“During his eight-year rule, he never visited Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu or showed concerns to his position as Igbo leader"

The group alleged that Obasanjo was working secretly through “some disgruntled Igbo politicians to destabilise the developing cohesion among Igbo leaders.”
