Buhari has no good agenda for Southern states —MASSOB
The Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has expressed concerns over what it described as President Muhammadu Buhari’s neglect of the South East geopolitical region to improve the northern part of the country.
The group alleged that the president had made an attempt to strangulate the eastern region to grow his own region.
The group, however, charged governors in the eastern region to look inward and investigate how the Federal Government is using the resources generated from the southeast to develop the North.
While citing some of the projects which the Federal government has abandoned in the eastern region, the group said, the eastern railway corridor has been neglected for Abuja- Kaduna; inactive eastern seaports for Kaduna dry port, among others.
The Spokesman of MASSOB, Samuel Edeson in a statement in Enugu on Thursday, said it has become paramount that governors from the eastern region come together in the spirit of brotherhood and develop the region.
“It is very clear that President Muhammadu Buhari and the northern cabal have perfected plans to establish northern agenda, which is to frustrate, destabilise and crush the entire eastern region because of their hatred for Biafra. “
Why are Lagos seaports functional and causing traffic gridlock from to Cele to Mile 2, Apapa and other parts of Lagos State?
“MASSOB wishes to inform the citizens that the Federal Government has opened Kaduna dry port for Igbo importers who are their primary target.
“Why are Calabar, Port Harcourt and Onitsha seaports not working? Because the Arewa cabals know that if these ports are operational, the entire eastern region will progress economically.
“This is the second phase of the economic blockade the Federal Government is using against Biafra.
“Nigeria railway is actively functioning in other parts of this entity called Nigeria but in the east, there is nothing like a train.
The rail track has been vandalised by the same agents of the government.
“The railway quarters in the eastern region are death traps and some so-called Igbo leaders will be shouting ‘One Nigeria’.
All railways in the east have been taking over by grasses and armed bandits.
