How we can make Igbo land Nigeria's China - Chief Nwodo

- Igbo people in Nigeria have continued to feel marginalised and this resulted in the various agitations for the Biafran republic
- The new leader of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, repeats that Igbo people have been pushed too far while revealing how he would lead the organisation
Chief Nnia Nwodo, the new president-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, an Igbo social-cultural organisation, has asked indigenes of the zone to bring home investments so as to develop the region.
How we can make Igbo land Nigeria's China - Chief Nwodo
Nwodo said Igbo people had been pushed beyond limit
He also raised the hope of the people of the region saying they were close to their 'promise land'.
Nwodo expressed optimism that Igbo land can become the envy of Nigeria by competing favourably with China.
Vanguard reports that the Igbo leader said this when he performed his first official assignment of the swearing-in ceremony of the Enugu state executive committee of the organisation.
He said apart from helping to develop the zone, such investments would boost employment in the region and further unite it.
While announcing that he would unfold his agenda for Ndigbo soon, he reportedly condemned the secret trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB).
He further explained that there was no division in the organisation, adding: “We are united for a common cause. For the first time, we had a peaceful national election that went viral like never before. President Muhammadu Buhari congratulated me within 48 hours.
“Former Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar; Afenifere, Arewa Consultative Forum, past heads of state, governors, church leaders and other groups called to congratulate me and lend a hand of support and partnership to work with us. The increased national attention will increase national expectation from us.”
The new leader noted that Igbo people’s patience was overstretched, but promised to lead them out of their current challenge.
“The propounded elastic situation has reached its limit and when it reaches its elastic limit, it will cut. We promised to take Ndigbo to achieve that,” he said adding: “We can turn Igbo land to China of Africa if we bring home talent and God’s given gift to us.
“My administration is for economic revolution not for politics because I rejected politics after the death of my wife (Justice Regina Nwodo).”
