The leadership of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB has declared support for President Goodluck Jonathan regarding his second term ambition.
The leader of MASSOB Chief Ralph Uwazuruike made the position of the group known in Owerri while receiving the new leadership of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA.
He said, “MASSOB is in agreement that President Jonathan should run for the 2015 presidential election. I call on Ndigbo to give full support to President Goodluck Jonathan in the forthcoming general elections.”
Giving reasons why the Igbo should support Jonathan again, Uwazuruike said, “Whichever way you look at the issue and person involved, he is our brother. He buried our leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu in a very fashionable manner.”
MASSOB’s call follows the call of Ohaneze Ndigbo, an Igbo socio-cultural group for the Igbo to support Jonathan.
