The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has made another attempt to convince the United Na­tions (UN) to pass a resolution recognising the South-Eastern region of Nigeria as the Republic of Biafra.

Making the call via a statement issued by Sunday Okereafor, the National Assistant Director of Information of the move­ment, MASSOB said the sought after recognition will conform with the recognition the republic got in the 1960’s.

Okereafor further stated that the just concluded election was a repeat of the 1960’s episode where two of the three major blocs in the country conspired against the South East, leading to the Nigeria-Biafra Civil War.

He went on to state that the “political marriage” be­tween the North and South- West was not in line with the current political arrangement of the Nigeria of today, hence the need for the UN to recognise Biafra as a sovereign state.
