Missing Mace : Senate has lost its mandate – MASSOB - Senate, News, MASSOB, mace

By Uzoh Ugwueze, Enugu

The Movement Actualisation of the Sovereign of Biafra (MASSOB) on Wednesday declared that Nigerian Senators have the mandate of representing the people.

It asked the senators to return to their constituencies with immediate effect.

The pro-Biafra group spoke in reaction to the invasion of the Upper Legislative Chamber earlier on Wednesday, during which the mace was snatched by thugs.

Speaking through Comrade Edeson Samuel, its National Director of Information, the Comrade UchennaMadu-led group said it was delighted over the development in the national assembly.

While claiming to have been vindicated by the incident, MASSOB said “as the foremost pro-Biafra Movement, we will still maintain non-violence as our watchword; we do not support anarchy or any abnormal behavior.

“But political, economic, religious, academic and social events in Nigeria under President Buhari administration have shown that Biafra actualisation and restoration [which], MASSOB and other pro-Biafra groups are demanding, has been proven to be more legitimate.

“The unconstitutional and forceful taking of the mace from the red chamber by thugs has shown that Nigeria is a failed and irreparable that can never stand. Imagine a higher chamber where security agents are supposed to be at alert, but the reverse was the case.”

It added that “taking of the symbol of authority means that the government of Nigeria has failed. Every should return to his constituency because there is no longer [any] constitutional power backing them.

“It has also shown that the government of President Buhari has collapsed since thugs can invade the National Assembly and make away symbol of authority without any resistance from the security agents.

“MASSOB laments what will be the fate of a common citizen in the street. MASSOB is also in full support of the statement credited to former chief of army staff, General T.Y Danjuma, where he urged the people of Middle Belt, Westerners and Biafrans to defend themselves.

“It is obvious that Buhari cannot provide security citizens of this political entity called Nigeria. It’s a pity that the senators of Nigeria have also failed their people.

“MASSOB is calling on the people of Middle Belt to rise and defend themselves from Fulani ethnic cleansing organised and sponsored by the APC-led government.

“The People of Middle Belt should know that over 70% of security agents in Nigeria are Hausa Fulani and they cannot protect you from any attack being carried out by their kinsmen.”
