The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Tuesday denied a newspaper report that it would lead President Goodluck Jonathan’s presidential campaign in 2015.
Leader of MASSOB, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, who spoke to newsmen in Onitsha, described the publication as false and baseless. He said he had never met President Jonathan to discuss anything about his presidential ambition in 2015.
He said: “The publication was full of falsehood aimed at distracting MASSOB because there was never a time I met Jonathan with Ojukwu’s wife, Ambassador Bianca to discuss anything concerning his ambition.
MASSOB has no link with the Presidency because we are not politicians. We are fighting for the actualisation of our own freedom in a country where Ndigbo are constantly treated like unimportant people.”
“It was a malicious falsehood by the writer who alleged that Uwazuruike and Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu went to see President Goodluck Jonathan in Aso Rock.”
The writer even went ahead to say that Jonathan gave me a brand new SUV, imagine? I wish to state it categorically clear to all that MASSOB shall never be distracted by any person or group of persons who hide under different amorphous groups to attack our noble quest for freedom.”
Chief Uwazuruike called on MASSOB and entire Ndigbo to remain calm and peaceful, assuring that very soon, events in the nation would play a very big role in the emancipation of Ndigbo.
