As some South East leaders push for an Igbo to become President in 2023, the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the  Biafra Independent Movement (BIM), said they are not interested in that, rather the actualisation of Biafra which they claim is now backed by the United Nations (UN), Concise News reports.

The groups therefore appealed to the Federal Government of Nigeria to grant them Biafra independence ahead of the 2023 general elections.

A representative of the two groups, Chief Larry Ikechukwu Odinma, who addressed the media in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi state capital on Monday, said Igbo were more focused on getting Biafra and developing the prospective new country.

“The clamour for an Igbo man to become  President of Nigeria is entirely not our concern. Groups or individuals after such intentions are on their own,” Odinma stated.

“We want to rule ourselves, we want to develop our nation.

“So we appeal to the Nigeria government to grand us our sovereignty as our mother nation.

“All the necessary arms of governments are is already actively functioning and  doing credibly magnificent in the discharge of their duties.
