The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MAS- SOB), yesterday, warned that Nigeria was sitting on a time bomb given the poor response by the federal and state governments to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It warned Igbo to be extra careful and maintain strict adherence to the advice and guidelines by the World Health Organisation (WHO) against contracting the virus.
A statement by MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu, said at the rate the virus was spreading, it might trigger more devastative deaths of citizens because both federal and state governments are not doing enough to protect citizens. Nigeria is sitting on a devastative ticking time bomb.
“Though the governors of Igboland are putting up some preventive measures in combating the dreadful virus in their respective states, MASSOB still believes that more drastic and eloquent efforts must be taken to alleviate
the traumatic, economical, health and social sufferings of the people of their respective states.
We implore our governors to shun party and personal group politics in dealings with the people of their respective states. The current devastative situation does not require party loyalist or praise singers,” Madu said.
He charged MASSOB members to continue to abide by the directives given to them through their state coordinators concerning the best way of avoiding the pandemic.
