The leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike has expressed his support for the 2023 presidential bid of Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi.
Uwazuruike, who led some South East youths in a solidarity march in support of Bello, said he does not believe in the president of Igbo extraction adding that the contest should be thrown open.
The MASSOB leader shared his thoughts when the governor who is a presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress(APC), visited him in Owerri, Imo.
Uwazuruike advised Nigerians to shun zoning, insisting that it had no place in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The agitator went on to state that his group would support Bello to become the next president of Nigeria because he had the leadership qualities to lead Nigeria effectively.
He said: “All Nigerians should rally round the youthful governor. We are supporting Bello for this and no one else. That he has the capacity to solve the problem of insecurity and a host of others facing the nation is not in doubt.
“This is a crucial time in the history of the country. We must give youths a chance, especially one that has demonstrated uncommon capacity, in the person of Yahaya Bello.”
