Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has condemned an alleged plot by some All Progressives Congress (APC) governors from the North to lure former President Goodluck Jonathan to the 2023 presidential race.

In a statement, yesterday, by its leader, Uchenna Madu, MASSOB urged Jonathan and his Ijaw kinsmen to be wise enough to discern the subtle and hypocritical moves of Arewa governors.

MASSOB said: “The Sultan of Sokoto, the Aso Villa cabal, the frontline emirs, the Arewa opinion leaders and Islamic gurus, both in Nigerians and overseas, are perfectly aware and systematically pushing for a Goodluck Jonathan one tenure administration. Their ultimate political aim is to frustrate the golden chance of the Igbo man or South East zone to emerge as President of Nigeria.

“The people of South East and the indigenous Igbo in South South region have always supported the Ijaw mostly on the presidency of Goodluck Jonathan during his political travails in the hands of Arewa leaders.”

MASSOB also asked former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu, and Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State to bury their presidential ambitions in 2023.

The statement added: “It is not about sentiment or selfishness to support the South East zone; it is the turn of South East zone to produce the next president of Nigeria, according to the zoning arrangement.”
