Ndigbo Not Treated Well In Nigeria – Ukiwe, Anya, Others
At another forum in Lagos, the plight of the Ndigbo in the present dispensation was condemned by prominent Nigerians of Igbo extraction. They said that the Igbo were being poorly treated in Nigeria.
They urged the South East people to stop lamenting their plight in the country and urged them to focus on the areas of their strength.
The leaders spoke at the public presentation of a book titled: “The Land of My Birth” authored by a legal practitioner, Mr. Abraham Nnadi.
The event was attended by former Chief of General Staff, Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe (rtd); ex-Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Odein Ajumogobia; Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu (rtd); founding Chairman of Nigeria Economic Summit Group, Prof Anya O. Anya; former President of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Chief Olisa Agbakoba (SAN); Chief Alex Oti; Prof Pat Utomi, and Ms. Onyeka Onwenu.
In his remarks, Ukiwe said: “Igbo people are great people; it is unfortunate that they are being hated. But I am urging them to stop lamenting.
This is not the time for lamentation. Igbo people should get up and move on because hatred is not always a bad thing. Ndigbo have good manners.
Let them practice good manners and move on. We are not known for being idle. Igbo people will succeed in this country.”
