Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has claimed that Igbos play what he termed as the ‘worst politics’ in the country. Speaking during an interactive session with top media practitioners, in Owerri, he said:
“Igbos have to change their strategy, in order to reclaim their relevance in Nigeria’s power equation. Quote me anywhere, Igbos play the worst politics in Nigeria. Today, Hausas have realised they can win an election without Igbos.
Hitherto, Hausa used to think they could not win elections without Igbo. Now, they believe with the combined massive populations of Lagos and Kano, they no longer need Igbos to win, hence, the latest alliance between Hausa and Yoruba.
I’ve always said Igbo have this feeling of abandonment. IPOB would have made better impact if they had operated under any other name other than Biafra, to push their demand for equity in sharing of the nation’s political and economic resources. .
The call for secession was childish. IPOB should have fought their struggle like the Niger Delta youths, Arewa youths and Yoruba group. Who is Nnamdi Kanu to ask Rochas to follow him to war?
