The Igbo speaking people in the Southeast of Nigeria have vowed to remain in the country and contribute to its unity.
The President-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, Professor George Obiozor made this declaration today, September 9 on behalf of the entire Igbo speaking people when President Muhammadu Buhari paid a one-day official visit to Imo State.
Professor Obiozor assured the President of the continuous support of his government by the Ndigbo.
‘‘Ndigbo are committed to Nigerian unity,” he emphasized noting that that is a bad news “for those trying to push us out of Nigeria.
‘‘Ndigbo in Nigeria are like fish in the ocean and no matter how rough the storm is, it cannot drive the fish out of the ocean.
‘‘Mr President, it is in this context, that we see a new dawn in your distinguished presence in Igbo land and believe that on your return to Abuja the significance and substance of this visit will form new foundation of a platform for meaningful dialogue on critical issues of concern to the Igbo nation.”
