Against the backdrop of recent calls for restructuring of the Nigerian state, the Movement for Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, also known as the Biafra Independent Movement, BIM, has restated its demand for a referendum on the nation to save the country from splitting by violence and war.
The National Director of Information, Mazi Sunday Okereafor while speaking newsmen in Owerri yesterday in his reaction to President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement against referendum insisted that referendum is the best option rather than war
His words, “Where the the president said there should not be referendum, it means that he is asking for anarchy.
“The continued uprising and insecurity arising from the agitations of sectional groups such as MASSOB, Avengers militants, Book Haram in the country calls for referendum.
Okereafor condemned the recent killings and massacre of Ndigbo at Nimbo in Igbo Eze North LGA of Enugu State by terrorist herdsmen.
He disclosed the recent promotion of the former MASSOB leader, Chief Solomon Chukwu to chief MASSOB leader and Chief Canice Anojuru as MASSOB zonal leader of Owerri zone
He said that their elevation by the Biafra leader Chief Ralph Uwazuruke came after a careful assessment of their performance

    Buhari should realize by now that he is not a military but supposedly a democratic leader. His repudiation of advice and reticence to democratic principles evince his disposition to protect the interest of his fellow parasites from the North in place of the wishes of most Nigerians. Referendum or not Biafra has come to stay until maturity at God’s destined time. Biafrans don’t be too drippy to continue the match to the promised land.
