Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, on Friday said the “biggest problem facing Igbo land” presently is the ethnic group’s inability to ‘build bridge and friendship with other Nigerians’.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Anambra-born Igbokwe while making a recap of some of the books he has authored, counseled his kinsmen to “change tactics”.
Commenting on ‘Igbo: 50 years after Biafra’, he said via Facebook: “This book came out in 2021. I tried to recall how far our people have gone 50 years after the the Civil War. It is just an update 25 yrs after (1995-2020). No doubt that Igbo have done very well in areas of commerce and industry but playing politics has become a big problem here.
“Building bridges and building friendship with other Nigerians have become the big problem. This is biggest problem facing Igbo land today.
“The summary is that Igbo are not getting a fair deal in Nigeria and we have not made conscious efforts to ameliorate the anomalies.
“The advice is that leaders in Igboland must change tactics. The path we have chosen since 1970 has not worked better. We cannot be doing the same thing every day and expect different results.”
