Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has declared that only the Igbo nation can survive in the event that Nigeria is divided – due to their resilience.
The governor made this declaration on Saturday when the Ndigbo Community in Ekiti conferred him with the traditional title of ‘Nwanne – De – Namba at the Olukayode Stadium, Ado Ekiti during the Igbo Cultural Day.
The governor, according to Vanguard Newspaper, described Igbos as industrious people and will be able to handle Nigeria’s division -that is if it happens.
Fayose also used the medium to flay at some political leaders, who he referred to as ‘fake’, because “they are only accessible to the people when they are looking for votes only to buy bullet proof cars and erect artificial walls around themselves so that they would not be accessible to the people after the poll.”
His words: “Whatever anybody says, the Igbos are a unique people in the country. God forbid, if Nigeria should break, they are the only nation that can survive because they are industrious people.
” All the permanent structures found everywhere are owned by the Igbo people. Wherever you go in the country, you will find an igbo man there.
“No igbo man can vote for any other party in Ekiti State except the party I belong to because we are bonded with one another “.
