Senator Jim Nwobodo, former governor of old Anambra State, has made a declaration that until the injustices meted out on Ndigbo is reversed, Nigeria will never experience peace.
Nwobodo who also was the former Minister of Sports made this known during his 79th birthday celebration in Enugu on Sunday, organised for him by Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
Citing that the major injustices against Ndigbo, was the continued denial of the people of the South East the position of president of the country, also attributing the formation of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), and some other similar groups, to high rate of unemployment in the country.
“I will be an Igbo in my next life. Once we can love ourselves, the sky will be our limit.
“There is IPOB because there is no job. Graduates of 10 years without jobs can’t just keep quiet.
“I have accepted the challenge of uniting Ndigbo. Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani now calls me boss and I am overwhelmed and surprised at the marvellous works of God.
“There will be no peace in Nigeria until an Igbo man becomes President of Nigeria. Nigeria should give Ndigbo their share of the country. How can you revolve power just among a particular set of Nigerians?
“We wanted to go before; we won’t fight but peace will elude Nigeria if it continues to deny Ndigbo their due entitlement. I will not disappoint Ndigbo and I must always stand by the truth,” he said.
