Okorocha: ‘Igbos Will Lose More If Nigeria Breaks Up’

Rochas Okorocha, the Senator representing Imo West, has cautioned the Southeast against their agitations for Nigeria’s breakup.

Okorocha warned that Igbos would be the worst hit if Nigeria breaks up.

The former Imo State Governor spoke in Abuja while addressing some women groups yesterday.

Okorocha stressed that the Southeast should push towards fixing the country and not its disintegration.

The lawmaker stressed that Igbos 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’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”.

Southeast groups like the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereignty State of Biafra, MASSOB, have been agitating for the disintegration of Nigeria.

IPOB led by Nnamdi Kanu has been in the forefront, calling for Biafra’s actualization.
