The group in a statement, jointly signed by Malam Mohammed Labbo and Cassidy Madueke, the Coordinator and Secretary of BMSG respectively, said. “We urge all Igbos to have faith in President Buhari’s administration with his commitment to be just to all sections of the country when he said, `I belong to everybody, and I belong to nobody.

“Continue to explore avenues for peaceful solutions to the grievances of your region, as it is only through peace that the much-sought after infrastructure and social development can be realized.”

The group also said it will take time for the President to solve the problems caused by the 16 years of misrule of Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).

BMSG also praised the Governors of the south-east for organising peace talks between the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the Federal Government.
