A former Governor of Anambra state, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has stated that the Igbo tribe won’t leave Nigeria because of the actions and attitude of President Muhammadu Buhari. ayokinews.com reports
According to Ezeife, President Muhammadu Buhari has been trying to push the Igbos out of the demographics of Nigeria, but they would not leave.
Ezeife made this known while speaking to newsmen during the public presentation of three books based on the revival of Igbo culture by Dame May Ikokwu, the founder of a non-governmental organisation (NGO), known as Save Our Heritage Initiative (SOHI).
He further accused the president of being responsible for the political and security tension in the southeastern part of the country.
“We must be careful with ourselves, we Igbo people. If somebody is targeting to kill us, should we go and kill ourselves?
“Let us tell our people the truth: we are not leaving Nigeria tomorrow and those who know don’t even want to leave
“Are we leaving because of one man-Buhari? Before Buhari, were we being pushed out of Nigeria?
“I said Buhari has been pushing us out of Nigeria. Should we obey him?” he said.
