The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, on Wednesday, noted that the former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party for the All Progressives Congress.
The group while reacting to Fani-Kayode’s alleged plan to join APC described the move as an act of betrayal.
MASSOB in a statement released through its leader, Uchenna Madu, said the former minister dumped PDP in order to campaign for APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu.
The meeting between Fani-Kayode and some leaders of the APC on Tuesday has raised concern from different quarters.
MASSOB in its reaction said, “he has been romancing with the APC politically since mid last year after Bola Tinubu convinced him to stop criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari’s clueless administration.”
“Fani-Kayode’s inroad to APC is primarily to support and campaign for the presidential ambition of Bola Tinubu as a fellow Yoruba man. They are working seriously even to convince other top Yoruba leaders, including former president Olusegun Obasanjo, Woke Soyinka, to support the presidential ambition of Bola Tinubu for the sake of Yoruba political interest in Nigeria.”
He added that “the second reason for Femi Fani-Kayode’s defection to APC is to campaign for the former president Goodluck Jonathan if Bola Tinubu’s presidential ambition crashes.”
“Goodluck Jonathan will soon declare for APC because of the promise and assurances given to him by the Northern caliphate. These political arrangements and strategies will fail because Nigeria is heavily pregnant, only the people of Southeast will determine if she will live or die because we hold the life wire of Nigeria.”
He added that “MASSOB is not against APC, neither does it support PDP. We have respected Igbo leaders in both APC and PDP whom we equally respect. APC and PDP should not push the people of the Southeast to the wall because Ndigbo holds the survival and destruction of Nigeria.”
The destruction of Nigeria will never affect Ndigbo but it will totally destroy the Fulani and their Hausa collaborators, even the Yoruba will not survive it.
“The Northern caliphate can no longer dictate the political future of Nigeria again. The political reality of 2023 will prove them wrong because Ndigbo will take another political dimension that will determine the next step for Nigeria.”
The pro-Biafra group advised Igbo leaders associating with Fani-Kayode “to exhibit extra care because Fani-Kayode is a core full-blooded Yoruba man who always hates everything about Igbo. He is a betrayer. He can never support an Igbo man to be president of Nigeria. He is an unrepentant political sadist against Igbo interest.”
