Naija Information stories that the Ex-PDP Nationwide Chairman made this observation all through an interview with Forefront newspaper the place he stressed out {that a} restructured Nigeria would impress various socio-economic construction of various areas in Nigeria.

Nwodo who spoke to Forefront on Tuesday, mentioned Igbo elites had been seeking to music down the rhetorics of Nnamdi Kanu to reach a restructured Nigeria, including that what the Indigenous Folks of Biafra is pronouncing is what each and every Igbo guy is aware of to be true

The previous Nationwide Chairman of the PDP suggested Nigeria to provide South-East a possibility to provide the president of the rustic in 2023, including that the rest wanting that will make the area to struggle for her freedom,

Nwodo stressed out that Igbo elites imagine in ‘One Nigeria’ the place justice and fair-play will be the order of the day.

His phrases: “What the Indigenous Folks of Biafra (IPOB), is pronouncing is what each and every Igbo guy is aware of to be true. Nnamdi Kanu has taken the issues of the Igbos to the global enviornment. The Igbo elites are pronouncing that Nigeria is best for us as a result of we want a much broader marketplace to function.

“Secondly, we’re a significant stakeholder on this Nigerian endeavor. Subsequently, the Igbo elites had been seeking to music down the rhetorics of Kanu with a view to negotiate a restructured Nigeria; this is our number one ambition, that Nigeria be restructured alongside the traces of the primary republic. If Nigeria is restructured, we will be able to expand at our personal tempo. Underneath Michael Okpara premiership, Jap Nigeria used to be the quickest rising economic system on this planet and we will be able to repeat that feat. If Nigeria is restructured, we will be able to create a Dubai in Nigeria and I’m certain that the zones within the north can do higher than Netherlands which earns extra in agriculture than Nigeria has ever earned through crude oil. Center-belt will do significantly better with the volume of mineral deposits of their position.

“So, a restructured Nigeria will get up the Nigerian economic system as a result of there could be mutual pageant and each and every area could be doing as excellent as they have been doing within the first republic; agriculture will come again, mineral sources will come again and crude oil which is now dwindling and now not so horny once more would nonetheless be there.

“The focal point of the elites in Igboland is restructuring. We imagine that this marginalisation which has been occurring for over 50 years after the struggle shall be a factor of the previous. I feel it’s about time Nigeria has a moment desirous about it and in the event that they do, in each and every really extensive equity, it’s the flip of the South East Nigeria to provide a president for the rustic. Different zones have carried out so, why now not the South East? Are we nonetheless being punished for the struggle?

“What we say is if we might now not be allowed to be president of Nigeria, and if marginalisation will have to pass on, it reduces us to second-class voters and slaves in our personal nation, the one factor to be had to us is to struggle for our independence and freedom. The cry for restructuring is international in Nigeria now, and if South East is often marginalised after 2023, It’s not that i am certain that any zone in Nigeria, particularly, South West, South South and Center Belt will really feel relaxed in proceeding in a rustic referred to as Nigeria.

“If the person who’s so badly marginalised can’t be assuaged, then, the place is the hope for Nigeria when weighed at the anvil of fairness? The rustic felt that the West have been injured through the annulment of June 12 election they usually zoned the presidency to the South West they usually stopped their agitation for the introduction of Oduduwa State and remained in Nigeria and began making funding at Abuja. Why is the one of the vital Igbos other? We’re simply pronouncing that if Nigeria does now not need us, there may be another and that choice is for us to head and handle ourselves.

“Each crew that wishes to reach existence will have to have a force crew. I see Nnamdi Kanu as a force crew and I see the Igbo elites as patriots who imagine in ‘One Nigeria’ so long as it’s an equitable, truthful and simply Nigeria. Kanu is solely pronouncing, for those who don’t wish to concentrate to our elders and elites, then, allow us to become independent from.”
