The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is after Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu because he is Igbo.
MASSOB made the comment via a statement released by leader, Uchenna Madu.
The statement reads in part:
“MASSOB has discovered the major reasons behind President Buhari’s pathological and sentimental hatred against Ndigbo and Biafrans in general which is his perceived pathological envy against the entrepreneurship, economic prowesses, establishment, domineering and industrious nature of Igbo people.”
“Buhari’s grouse against Ike Ekweremadu is because he’s Igbo man not PDP; if a non-Igbo PDP senator replaces Ike Ekweremadu, Buhari, Tinubu and their likes will relax their nerves.”
“MASSOB also reminds Ndigbo that this is the time of Onye Aghala Nwanne ya (Be your Brother’s keeper). President Buhari is always rattled and unsettled whenever he sees, hears or encountered the magnanimity of economical dominance and booming enterprising exploits of Ndigbo both in Nigeria and in the Diaspora.”
President Buhari has been accused of backing Ekweremadu’s trial for forgery after he and Senate President, Bukola Saraki were accused of forging the Senate Standing Rules 2015.
