The founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, and leader of the Biafra Independent Movement, BIM, Ralph Uwazuruike, has disclosed that “heavy human sacrifices” have been made since the agitation for Biafra started in 1999.
Uwazuruike noted that with the heavy sacrifices made since the renewed agitation started, the South East region was not withdrawing its push for an independent state.
He stressed that making an Ndigbo President will not stop South East region from demanding for Biafra.
Recall that former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, had recently advocated an Igbo presidency in 2019.
However, Uwazuruike, claimed that Igbos are tired of Nigeria, adding that the actualisation of Biafra is the ultimate and the only aim of Ndigbo, The Sun reports.
Stressing that there is no going back, the MASSOB founder, noted that the agitation for the independent state of Biafra is already before the international community and the United Nations, UN.
According to Uwazuruike, “Ndigbo wants Biafra and nothing more , that is why the agitation since 1999 in which we have made heavy sacrifices both in human and material and even if they give Ndigbo the presidency of Nigeria, it would not stop us from asking for Biafra.
He added, “our ultimate goal is to actualise the sovereign state of Biafra no matter how long it takes us to do that but surely Biafra must be a reality.
Today , if you ask any Igbo man or woman they will tell you that they want Biafra and not the president of Nigeria because they are already fed up with the injustice, inequality and discrimination against them simply because they are Igbo.”
