"IPOB has Only Brought Mistrust Between Igbos and Other Tribes".....Gov. Okorocha

The Governor of Imo State shared the sentiments of most Nigerians when he revealed that the whole issue of Biaftra wasn’t handled with wisdom and it only brought mistrust among the Igbos and other tribes.

“Igbo have to change their strategy, in order to reclaim their relevance in Nigeria’s power equation. Quote me anywhere, Igbo play the worst politics in Nigeria. “Today, Hausa have realised they can win an election without Igbo. “Hitherto, Hausa used to think they could not win elections without Igbo.Now, they believe with the combined massive populations of Lagos and Kano, they no longer need Igbo to win, hence, the latest alliance between Hausa and Yoruba. “So, where is Igbo today in Nigerian politics?” Okorocha asked. He added: “I’ve always said Igbo have this feeling of abandonment.
“IPOB would have made better impact if they had operated under any other name other than Biafra, to push their demand for equity in sharing of the nation’s political and economic resources. The call for secession was childish. “IPOB should have fought their struggle like the Niger Delta youths, Arewa youths and Yoruba group. “Who is Nnamdi Kanu to ask Rochas to follow him to war? “Check it out, no Hausa man living in the southeast owns a duplex neither can you see a Yoruba man who lives in a room and parlour apartment of his own or an investment worth N20 million. “But, should Nigeria break up today, Igbo will lose trillions in properties and other investments in Lagos, the North and other parts of the country. This is why we all must condemn IPOB’s call for break up.”

“The southsouth has produced a president, the southwest has produced a president and vice president while the North has produced many presidents. “By political calculation, it was expected that very soon, Igbo would have a chance to produce the president, but, the same Igbo want to break away from Nigeria. Where is our wisdom? Read more:

“Regrettably, IPOB activities has created fears in the minds of Hausa and other ethnic nationalities in the country, that, once Igbo becomes president, they would secede”.
