*Says mission suspicious
From Steve Oko, Umuahia
The Comrade Uchenna Madu -led leadership of the Movement for the Actualization of the African Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has vowed to resist the much -criticized medical team from China being imported by the Federal Government to assist in the fight against the deadly coronavirus pandemic from entering the South East and South South geopolitical zones.
This is as the Federal Government has insisted that the Chinese team would arrive Abuja before the end of the week despite growing public outcry against the move.
MASSOB, in a press release personally signed by its leader, Madu, said the move was suspicious and warned the team never to attempt setting foot on “Biafra land “.
“We have warned the government of China Republic to limit their hypocritical medical services to Arewa and Oduduwa land”, the release said.
The release further read : “MASSOB shall resist any medical assistance from China to the people of Biafra. It is only on trade, commerce and political diplomacy that the people of Biafra have a bilateral relationship with the people and government of China.
“We advise philanthropic Chinese government not to bother themselves on the people of Biafra concerning corona virus disease. They should concentrate their coronavirus medical assistant to President Buhari’s kinsmen in Arewa land and Bola Tinubu’s political associates in Oduduwa land because MASSOB has informed the people of Biafra to resist any form of medical assistance from China as regards coronavirus disease.”
MASSOB said that medical doctors and other health workers in South East and South South “are capable and trained to handle every medical challenge professionally.”
The pro-Biafra group ,therefore, advised the Nigeria Medical Association, NMA, Eastern zone to “outrightly reject this President Buhari’s sudden love for the lives of our people.”
MASSOB also accused Buhari of using China to re-colonise Nigeria and actualise the rumoured “Fulanisation agenda”.
“MASSOB understands that in the desperation of President Buhari, his fulani cabals and Arab- backed islamic religious fundamentalists to Islamize the state of Nigeria, the President has sold the economic sovereignty of Nigeria to China.
“His desire to establish a permanent homeland for his wandering Fulani tribe scattered in West Africa and using his office as the Commander- in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to solidify a new Chinese colonization of the Nigerian state that will always promote, protect and advance the economic, political and religious interest and advancement of Fulani tribe in Nigeria. President Mohammed Buhari is gradually diffusing the economic and political interest of the government of United States of America in Nigeria.”
MASSOB wondered why President Buhari who had never taken any tough action against armed Fulani herdsmen wrecking more havoc than coronavirus in Nigeria, suddenly developed interest in protecting the same people he had allegedly left at the mercies of the killer herdsmen by importing Chinese medical team against their wish.
“President Mohammed Buhari has never stopped the Boko Haram Islamic terrorists group that is devastating the North East. He has not stopped or arrested the rampaging Fulani terrorist herdsmen on ethnic cleansing in the Middle Belt. He has not condemned the terrorist activities of his Fulani kinsmen in Igbo land. President Mohammed Buhari did not show any moral sensitivity of a President to his presumed citizens in South Africa when our people were slaughtered in xenophobic killings in South Africa. Why this sudden love of protecting Ndigbo from coronavirus disease?”
