2019: MASSOB passes vote of no confidence in APGA

The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), yesterday issued candidates contesting various political position in the country a seven-day ultimatum to remove late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu- Ojukwu’s picture on posters, bill boards, campaign vehicles or face their wrath. Irked by the denial of the former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain, Iyom Bianca Ojukwu, to emerge the flag bearer of Anambra South Senatorial candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), in the just concluded primary election in the state, the new Biafran leader, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, at the weekend, passed no confidence vote on the Willie Obiano-led APGA and his leadership.

He added that if Ojukwu was disgraced by the Obiano led APGA, it then meant that the Igbo have been disgraced, describing the disgrace that was meted out to Iyom Bianca Ojukwu as embarrassing and an abomination.
