The leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, (MASSOB) Comrade Uchenna Madu has hailed Ndigbo over the high level of compliance with the sit-at-home declared by pro-Biafra groups on Tuesday.
In a statement Comrade Madu said the huge success the sit-at-home recorded was a clear indication that the time for Biafra had come just as he vowed to die than abandon the Biafra struggle, which he described as the only way out for Ndigbo.
The MASSOB leader while lauding the success recorded said, “The honour and pride goes to the people of Biafra.”
“The success achieved today is not a selfish pride for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu led IPOB or Comrade Uchenna Madu led MASSOB or any other group, it is an honour for the people of Biafra.
“It is an honour for the gallant and eloquent soldiers of Biafra and civilians that bravely laid down their lives for establishment of Republic of Biafra, it is an honour for Biafra school children, an honour to commercial cyclists, tricycles, buses and other vehicles operators, it is an honour to the cooperate firms/establishments that complied with the sit at home exercise”, he declared.
Speaking further, he added that, “the huge success is express evidence that the coming Biafra referendum shall be a walk over against Nigeria state. The success is also a direct confirmation that lights and darkness can never walk together.”
“The huge success is an indication to the international community’s that Biafrans are ever willing to stay on their own.
“This exercise is the greatest of all civil disobedience applied in the struggle for Biafra actualization and restoration; the success has opened a new dimension to Biafran struggle – a new dimension anchored on non-violence that will continuously paralyze the inconsequential remains of Nigeria.
“I Comrade Uchenna Madu, the leader of MASSOB pledge my consistent and unshakable loyalty to the people of Biafra with a vow that any day I go back on Biafra actualization and restoration struggle, I shall die”, he further declared.
