The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, on Thursday ordered the factional presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Jude Ezenwafor, to withdraw or face the wrath of Igbo youths.
The group condemned in totality the moves by alleged ‘enemies’ of Ndigbo to sponsor a faction in the LP, where the former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi had emerged as the presidential candidate.
The National Leadership of MASSOB in a statement signed by the Director of Information, Comrade Edeson Samuel, and made available to journalists in Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State, vowed to deal with political troublemakers In Igbo land.
According to MASSOB: “We describe Mr. Jude Ezenwafor as a huge disappointment and betrayer of future interest of Nigerian youths.
He was paid and allowed himself to be used by Aso Rock cabals to create the artificial impression that Mr. Peter Obi’s Labour Party is factionalized.
“We advise Mr. Ezenwafor to withdraw from this shameful and sacrilegious act and the mission he embarked on. We know that APC and PDP are afraid of Mr. Peter Obi and his labour mantra.
He has won the hearts of the populace, that is why they want to use Ezenwafor as a bought tool to frustrate Mr. Peter Obi.”
MASSOB, however, expressed confidence that Obi will definitely win the forthcoming 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.
“This Ezenwafor must learn from his paymasters on stepping down for their kinsman whom they entrust their political interest.
The Governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Tambuwal stepped down for his brother Atiku Abubakar for him to win the PDP presidential ticket. The Yoruba aspirants in APC presidential election stepped down for their brother, Bola Tinubu for him to clinch the APC presidential ticket,” the group said.
The group, however, tasked Mr. Ezenwafor to step down for Obi to avert being treated as a saboteur and betrayer of the Igbo nation.
