The former Imo State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Alex Obi, gave the advice when he spoke to journalists on a number of national issues in Owerri.
Ndigbo have been advised to remain resolute in their bid to take their appropriate position in the Nigerian project, as well as resist all attempts by any person, group or circumstances, aimed at scuttling this position
“I urge Ndigbo not to be cowed by any person, group or circumstances, in their bid take their rightful position in Nigeria”, Obi said. It was also the considered opinion of the Nbaise born politician that nobody should intimidate Ndigbo with memories of the civil war, which he said ended 48 years ago.
“Enough is enough. There is no doubt that Ndigbo are not only major stakeholders in Nigeria, but should also be treated as such”, Obi said.
He expressed regret that “Ndigbo have been severally shortchanged in the past”, due to what he called “ignorance and greed on the part of those who claim to represent them as leaders”.
