Biafra: Igbos will lose more if Nigeria breaks up – Okorocha
The Senator representing Imo West in the National Assembly, Rochas Okorocha, said the Igbo people of South-East region will lose more should Nigeria break-up.
Okorocha gave the warming while addressing some women groups on Saturday in Abuja.
The lawmaker stressed that the South-East should push towards fixing the country and not its disintegration.
The former Imo State governor stated that Igbos are nationalistic in nature, hence they should dismiss the urge for Nigeria’s disintegration.
“It is only an Igbo man that goes to a place and remains put in that place, buys a land and builds a house for his family without feeling insecure. The Igbo’s will lose more if Nigeria divides.
“Most Nigerian leaders who were successful had one thing or the other to do with the Igbos. It is either they married Igbo women or had some links with them. I can call names like, former President, Obasanjo; former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Buba Marwa, just to name a few,” he said.
Recall that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been agitating for the disintegration of Nigeria and creation of Biafra Republic.
