Igbos Own Half Of Nigeria – Bala Mohammed
Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed has said it would be difficult for the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to achieve self-determination in Nigeria because Igbos own half of the country.
Mohammed stated this while wooing the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s delegates for his presidential ambition in Anambra State on Friday.
He claimed when he was the minister of Federal Capital Territory, the Igbo capital investment in Abuja was over 50 percent.
According to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential aspiran: “When I was minister of Federal Capital Territory, the Igbo capital investment in Abuja was over 50 percent.
“That is the true position, not only in Abuja, but in Kano, Lagos, Kaduna and other states. So, we are interrelated and connected as a people in Nigeria.
“We need to stabilise that symbiotic bond that binds us together. When IPOB is talking about self determination and self actualization, for where? When you owe over half of the country.
“God may not give you everything. He has given something to you. That is the truth. Because of this, I am calling for this unity and fraternity among us. If the Igbo youth understand this, they will now know the need for peace and unity in the country.”
