” There’s one saying in Igbo that when it happens to the head, it will affect the leg so the situation of Nigeria is something that I believe that it’s only the Almighty God that will solve it, the economic of the country is nothing to write about.
” The youths as well have been agitating for their rightful position in Nigeria and nobody is doing the right thing. Someone like the governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-olu who is making every effort to make sure her their rightful position in this country, it was not easy so we need more hands, we need government to look at the..call of this great governor and also the youths of the country, they should do something urgently about the youths. Millions of people are jobless, millions of people are graduates, they are not even having a day experience of job in their professional area that have been studied and come out with good result in different universities in Nigeria here and abroad so that’s the only way we can boost the economy by employing graduates, those intellects who can turn t hi Inga around in the country so with that, we can move to the next stage and begin to talk about the promise land.
” Well, for me, anything of interest of Ndigbo bothers me, I am not neither here nor there, either as Biafra or Nigerian, all know is that at the moment we are one Nigeria, if it’s what will give us peace as brothers I am not the right person to say it, we have a National leader, Professor George Obiozorwho is the president general of Ohaneze Ndigbo but my own input as someone that have been clamoring for unity of this country, anywhere you want to go about having the interest Ndigbo, no matter how the short cut is, if this was move as far as its for the interest of Ndigbo, I am part of it.
” Well, the problem we have in this country is politicians, it’s not our age group neither our class mates, they know how to go about what they have started by themselves.

” I think I said it time and time that we need more indigenous security because it’s difficult for someone who comes from Kano to go and… my state, Ebonyi state talk less of some rural areas so we need more of indigenous security than the government security.

” We have to give ourselves time, we give ourselves 20 years ahead and it will be compulsory that everyone that wants to contest from councillor, any political post from councillor to presidency must study the three languages called Wazobia, Igbo, Hausa, Yoruba, without us hearing ourselves together, speaking the same language, we cannot sleep with the sane style and wake up with the same dream, we must go to that level and that’s what western world do, they give themselves time.
