Governor of Anambra state, Willie Obiano has revealed why Igbos are not doing too well in Nigerian politics.
Obiano, who is currently serving his second term as governor of Anambra state said that division among the Igbos has been the problem. Speaking to Journalists in a recent interview;
“If you look at the treatment perceived or otherwise that the Igbo have suffered in the polity called Nigeria, you will agree with me that the only way to march forward is that our sisters and brothers from the same bloc, we need to hold hands together; that is the only way anybody can take us seriously.
If we divide ourselves into small parts, they can never make a whole and that was why we have never done well in the Nigerian politics as Igbo, yet the Igbo today own over 70 percent of the Nigerian economy, whether anybody likes it or not, that is the truth.
However, most of this Igbo wealth are domiciled outside the South-east and the South-east remained backward in terms of infrastructure and self-sufficiency in food production; these are the things that Anambra State is trying to actualize. So, an APGA government will really help in the industrialization of other states. So, I have no doubt that we are going to make resounding impact not only in the South-East but also beyond.”
