He said anything that has to do with Nigeria has to do with Ndigbo, and for those who understand history, every stage in Nigeria’s development involves the pioneering experts of igbo people.
He said, “We have been colonies in West Africa for many years but Nigeria did not become Nigeria until Alaigbo became part of Nigeria that’s when we had Nigeria”.
“I am saying all of these because where I am standing today is igbo land because anywhere you see commerce, you see prosperity, you see development, you see unity, you find Igbo there.”
He reiterated the commitment of the social democratic party (SDP) to always say the truth and bring justice to the people, adding that the party has many beautiful plans for Nigeria.
“I plead with you that you should have confidence in Nigeria, a new Nigeria will come where we will not have to protest before we get our rights in Nigeria. A new Nigeria will come where our government will not be our enemy.
“A new Nigeria will come where we can go out every day of the week to do our business, we will not be doing stay at home, but that will be based on truth and Social Democratic Party will give you that”.
“The highest stake holder in Nigeria is an igbo man because the igbos are the true Nigerians because they go to anywhere and they go to everywhere and if Nigeria is bad, the first casualty is an Igbo man; therefore it is important that the Igbos develop interest on who becomes president in Nigeria.
