Igbos Are In Charge Of Nigeria’s Economy, It’s Unthinkable They Wish To Break Away

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, says it is “unthinkable” that any Igbo man would clamour for a separate nation.

The president said Igbo people are relevant people in the country, adding that they have successful businesses across different locations in Nigeria.

He further claimed the people of the region are the ones in charge of the country’s economy.

He spoke at a town hall meeting with South-East leaders during his one-day official visit to Owerri, the Imo State capital.

A statement quoted the president as saying that with less than two years left in his eight-year tenure as President, security remains a major priority for his administration.

Acknowledging the resourcefulness and enterprising spirit of the Igbo people, the President said, “The fundamental thing about the Igbo people is that there is no town you will visit in Nigeria without seeing the Igbos being in charge of either infrastructure or pharmaceutical industry.

“Therefore, it is unthinkable for me that any Igbo man would consider himself not to be a part of Nigeria.
