The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has hailed the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, as a champion of Nigeria’s contemporary democracy.
In observance of Nigeria’s 63rd independence anniversary, Comrade Uchenna Madu, the Leader of MASSOB, signed a statement expressing dismay at the hypocrisy and selfishness displayed by a multitude of political leaders.
Expressing dissatisfaction with the political leaders’ disregard for justice, the pro-Biafra group commended Obi for his exceptional leadership qualities and encouraged others to take inspiration from him.
The statement read in part: ‘Mr Peter Obi is the man holding Nigeria together in a temporal peaceful atmosphere right now because he truly came to help his people.’
‘He went all out against all political odds in Nigeria. He is the man that refuses to be part of the old order that ceaselessly keeps Nigeria in subjective bondage.’
‘Mr Peter Obi is the modern Nigeria leader that woke up the youths of Nigeria to face the reality of their stolen future.’
‘He won in Aso Rock Polling Unit, won all the Army Barracks Polling Units and Police Polling Units including other military and Police bases and academies in Nigeria. He is the only man that got 25% Vote in Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja. He won the 2023 Presidential Election.’
‘Mr Peter Obi ran the cleanest and fairest election in Nigeria without bribing or giving out money to buy votes. He stood his ground and kept calm, even when his mandate was stolen.’
‘Peter Obi prevented having a chaotic country when his mandate was stolen.
He refuses to collect money to let go of the court case.’
‘In the beginning, he was written off. Many did not expect him to have such political records in the history of Nigeria’.
Although lacking faith in Nigeria, MASSOB found it important to acknowledge and commend Obi for his exceptional way of living.
‘Though MASSOB does not believe in the Nigeria state because of her fraudulent foundation, we described Mr Peter Obi as the only modern political saint in Nigeria.’
Building upon their earlier statements, the pro-Biafra organisation voiced its disapproval of what it termed the imposition of political leadership within Nigeria, underscoring that the overall discontent resulting from the recent general elections merely revealed the flaws within the electoral administration.
