Hope Uzodinma Reveals Why Igbos Love Nigeria

The governor spoke on Saturday at an event organised in honour of Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, a former member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) board of trustees (BoT), who will turn 80 on Sunday.

Uzodimma said, “Igbos love Nigeria passionately and the evidence is overwhelming.

There is no part of Nigeria, no matter how remote, where you will not find Igbos living happily with their host communities while contributing to the growth and development of the area.

“What the Igbo seek from the country is accommodation, not domination. What they seek is acceptance and not rejection. What they seek are friendship and brotherhood, and they are also willing and able to offer the same.”

Also speaking, former President Goodluck Jonathan described Iwuanyanwu as a bridge builder who has continued to prioritise the unity and progress of Nigeria.

According to the former president, the former PDP BoT member is worthy of celebration for his contribution to Nigeria’s economy and political development.

Jonathan added that the Igbo hold an important place in the history of Nigeria as they have made significant contributions to the progress of the country primarily through trade and investment.

KanyiDaily recalls that Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie had expressed concern about the political marginalization of Igbo people, stressing that a president from the South East can deliver strategic leadership that will transform Nigeria.
