Biafra: Why Igbo People Will Lose More If Nigeria Breaks Up, Okorocha Warns

Okorocha emphasized that the South-East should focus on repairing the country rather than allowing it to disintegrate.

Rochas Okorocha, a former governor of Imo State and a senator representing Imo West District has warned the South-East against agitating for Nigeria’s disintegration.

If Nigeria breaks up, Okorocha warned, the Igbos will be the hardest hurt.

Yesterday, the former governor of Imo State talked to a gathering of ladies in Abuja.

Okorocha emphasized that the South-East should focus on repairing the country rather than allowing it to disintegrate.

The congressman emphasized that because Igbos are naturally nationalistic, they should reject calls 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 Igbos 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, (Olusegun) Obasanjo; former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Buba Marwa, just to name a few”.

There have been continuous agitations in the region with groups such as the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereignty State of Biafra, MASSOB, working towards the disintegration of Nigeria and creation of new republics.
