Ndigbo Will Not Tolerate Further Marginalization In Nigeria – MASSOB

Chief Ralph Uwazurike led Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB has warned that Ndigbo will not tolerate alleged further marginalization in Nigeria, urging President Muhammadu Buhari to address the issue without further delay.

This was disclosed, Sunday, by the Director, MASSOB Women, Anambra North, Comrade Amaka Okafor while briefing newsmen after a closed-door meeting with the Regional Administrators and other top MASSOB members in Onitsha.

The women who took to a protest without placards, chanted anti-Igbno marginilization songs and saying they have resorted to embark on prayers, through the services of prayer warriors in their bid to actualize the sovereign state of Biafra.

Comrade Okafor said, “We will use this month’s August women meeting to pray more fervently as we have embarked on prayer session throughout Igbo land to ask God to help us actualize Biafra”.

“We cannot achieve a sovereign state of Biafra without fervent prayers and we ask our women in Igbo land to ensure they use this August meeting of women to mobilize the women for the prayer which will be headed by the prayer warriors we have employed.

“We have suffered in a country we are part and parcel of and the marginalization has lasted for about four decades unabated without hope of freedom and that prompted our leader, Chief Ralph Uwazurike to vow that the marginalization must stop and actualizing a Biafran state is the only way it will stop” she said.

According to her, ” for the women to come out in their large number to speak against the injustice being meted out to Igbos by the Federal Government in Biafran land shows that they can no longer tolerate”.

“It was for this same reason that we had the Aba women riot of 1929 when the women protested because they were asked to pay tax by the government and we said no and today again, we are saying no to the marginalization of the Igbo” she said.
