MASSOB women protest Igbos Marginalization, ask Buhari to address issues

The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) lead by Chief Ralph Uwazurike has warned that Ndigbo will not tolerate further marginalization in Nigeria, urging President Muhammadu Buhari to address the issue without further delay.

This was disclosed by MASSOB Women Director for Anambra North, Amaka Okafor after a closed door meeting with the regional administrators and other MASSOB members, yesterday in Onitsha.
Okafor said:

    “We will use this month of August women meeting to pray more fervently as we have embarked on prayer session throughout Igbo land to ask God to help us actualize our cause.
    “We cannot achieve this without fervent prayers and we ask our women in Igbo land to ensure they use this August meeting of women to mobilize the women for the prayer which will be headed by the prayer warriors we have employed.
    “We have been marginalized for about four decades and that prompted Chief Uwazurike to vow that the marginalization must stop and actualizing a Biafran state is the only way it will stop,” she said.
    ” for the women to come out in their large number to speak against the injustice being meted out to Igbos by the Federal Government in Biafran land shows that they are fed up and can no longer tolerate it.
    “It was for this same reason that we had the Aba women riot of 1929 when the women protested because they were asked to pay tax by the government and we said no and today again, we saying no to the marginalization of the Igbo” she said.
