The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has rejected the idea of the Igbos begging the northern part of Nigeria in order to get the presidency in 2023. ayokinews.com reports
MASSOB kicked against the idea saying, the Igbos will not kneel to beg anyone as they would rather fight tooth and nail to produce Nigeria’s next president.
This was contained in a statement issued and signed by the leader of MASSOB, Uchenna Madu.
According to Madu, Igbos are not beggars; hence it would be an abominable act to the region to stoop that low.
In his words: “How do you think that your enemies will trust you? Even if you kill your wife or children to show your loyalty to them, just as our so-called Igbo/Abuja politicians are killing our brothers to please the Northern caliphate, yet they never gain their trust.”
“A beggar only begs for something that does not belong to him. A beggar is always inferior to the giver. Ndigbo are not beggars.”
“It is an abomination that Igbo elders will kneel down to another in begging, even though that the lives of Ndigbo are at risk. We can never beg, rather we devise our own means of fighting back because Igbos must survive. Ndigbo are not cowards or weaklings.”
