[NG]‘Ex-President knowingly created problems for Igbos,’ MASSOB says

The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has said that former president, Olusegun Obasanjo consciously and willfully created political problems for Igbos during his eight years in office.

The group made the comment via a statement released by leader, Uchenna Madu on Monday, January 2, 2017.
The statement reads:
“His current political antics, romance and friendship in Igbo land is suspect and dangerous to the political survival of Ndigbo in Nigeria.”
“During his eight-year tenure as Nigeria’s President, he consciously and willfully created political problems for Ndigbo. He initiated several political frustrations against Abia, Anambra, Enugu and Imo states during the tenure of Orji Uzor Kalu, Chinwoke Mbadinuju and Chimaraoke Nnamani.
“Obasanjo denied Igboland infrastructural development, he embarked on political witch-hunt of our people. He also mesmerized Ndigbo by changing Igbo senators five times in office of the Senate president.
“Today, Igbo governors of Abia, Ebonyi and Enugu states are celebrating him by inviting him to inaugurate projects in their respective states. During his eight-year rule, he never visited Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu or showed concerns to his position as Igbo leader.”
Obasanjo recently urged Igbos to improve on their unity as a tribe if they had any intention of producing Nigeria’s president in the future.
