A Lagos lawmaker representing Oshodi/Isolo Constituency II in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr Jude Idimogu, has declared that it is too late for the Igbo nation to pull out of Nigeria, sating that the rgion will find session injurious to itself..
He said: “As a full blooded Igbo man and a Nigerian, I believe, Igbo staying in Nigeria as an entity will prosper the Igbo nation better than pulling out. After the 1967 Civil war, the Igbo man started all over again to build up; now Igbo nation has made progress in terms of economy and politics.
“Though the Igbo nation has not reached where it is expected to be politically, we should dialogue rather than be creating war scenarios.
‘’It is too late to pull out (of Nigeria), Igbo nation has united Nigeria because they have businesses everywhere in this country… My children were born in Lagos and some of them don’t even know their state of origin, they speak Yoruba and so many Igbo children are like that across the North and West.
“We have our future in Nigeria. The only thing Igbo nation should fight for is political power not by creating war scenario but by merging with other nations/tribes in Nigeria – the Northerners and Westerners.
“Most Igbos, over 50 per cent, don’t even believe in Biafra because they have counted the cost from 1970 after the war till 2017. No one wants to go back to square one; it is not possible.
“As a person, I am against it; what the Igbo man should struggle for in this entity are equality, fairness and justice, not pulling out.
“It is very late to pull out, it will be difficult because majority of us are not ready to fight any war; I don’t want to lose my life nor my sons and daughter in war; I believe we can make Nigeria our home.” he said.
