Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has again called on the United Nations (UN) to pass a resolution recognising the South-East of Nigeria as a State of Biafra.
This, the organisation said, would be in conformity with the recognition given the territory in the late 60s by some countries during her struggle for self-determination.
National Assistant Director of Information of the movement, Sunday Okereafor, in a statement, said the outcome of the 2015 general elections in the country was nothing but a repeat of the 1960s in which two of the three major blocs in the country conspired against the South-East, culminating in the civil war that claimed the lives of many Igbo.
He stated that with the present political marriage between the North and South-West, Ndigbo had no place in the political arrangement of today’s Nigeria, emphasising that in the present circumstance, it would be expedient for the UN to recognize Biafra as a sovereign state.
