Rochas Okorocha, the Governor of Imo State and “One Nigeria” activist suggested that Igbos are the majority tribe in Nigeria and therefore cannot secede to another country.
Okorocha was speaking at the opening ceremony of the National Executive Council meeting of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Imo State capital, Owerri on Saturday.
According to him,
“We have no place to call our own if not Nigeria. We must defend the integrity of this country.
“The worst thing that will happen to any society is to have a visionless leader. Nigerians must change their attitude toward their leaders and leaders must learn how to talk to their followers.
Also speaking, billionaire businessman, Emmanuel Iwuayanwu, who chairmaned the event narrated:
“Nigerians are passing through hard times. These problems have lingered for years. They are not caused by Buhari administration. It is for this reason that Nigerians voted for change.
“We have come to a point Mr President should invite leaders in this country for a meeting to discuss how to solve our problems.
“Igbo are majority in this country and they cannot leave. We are Biafrans, Biafrans are Nigerians. It is the same way we have Arewa and Oduduwa.”
