Fix country, don’t disintegrate it, Okorocha warns Igbo


Fix country, don't disintegrate it, Okorocha warns Igbos

The Senator representing Imo West, Rochas Okorocha, has urged the South-East to fix Nigeria rather than seek the country’s breakup.

Okorocha said this while addressing some women groups on Saturday in Abuja adding that Igbo would be the worst hit if Nigeria breaks up, Daily Post reports.

The lawmaker stressed that Igbo are nationalistic in nature, hence they should dismiss the urge for Nigeria’s disintegration.

He said, “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 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.”
