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.
Uwazuruike, who gave glowing account of how Odumegwu-Ojukwu’s sterling strides, also said Ikemba remained the symbol of the Igbos. 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.
The Biafran leader frowned that it was only in Igbo land that somebody like Dim Ojukwu would receive such a disgraceful party primaries from APGA party which he struggled hard to build. He added that APGA having deprived Iyom Bianca Ojukwu of the senatorial ticket for Anambra South zone that BIM-MASSOB membtrers were concerned that the party is dead.
“As far as APGA political party and its leaders have no respect for DIM Ojukwu, APGA is dead and seizes to be Igbo party from today. He said any BIM MASSOB member who would vote APGA after today must die” and there was a thunderous Amen from the members in support of the pronouncement.
In a statement issued after the group’s meeting at Ojukwu memorial library, new Owerri, the Imo state capital and signed by the Biafra Director of information, Mazi Chris Mocha, Uwazuruike also banned the party tfrom use of Ojukwu’s picture for political rallies or campaigns in Imo, Abia, Ebonyi, Enugu, Anambra, Rivers, Delta, Edo and any other states where APGA has political structures.
