Based on this statement that was made by Chiwetalu Agu, I don't think that he is right for saying that. Why did I say so? I said so for some reason.
First, federal government projects:
If you go to the south east region today, there are several federal government projects presently going on in the south east region. For instance, the second Niger bridge is presently being constructed by the federal government in the south east region of the country.
As it stands now, work is going on along Enugu - Port Harcourt Expressway. So, tell me the reason why someone will come out and say that Nigeria has nothing for the south east region?
Secondly, federal governenmt appointments.
We all know that there are Igbos who are presently occupying top positions in government. The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige is an Igbo man from Anambra State. The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama is also an Igbo man. So I don't see any reason why Chiwetalu Agu should say such.
Before now, there have been important Igbo sons and daughters who have occupied to government offices, people like Mrs Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, who was the former finance minister, the former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, the former Chief of Army Staff, Azubuike Ihejirika, the former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and others.
Based on the facts on ground, I really think that Chiwetalu Agu made a very wrong statement by saying that Nigeria has nothing for the Igbos. Though he may be angry with what is presently going on in Nigeria today, but we all know that the future will be better for all us in Nigeria.
I know that some will kick against what I have just said here, but the fact remains that we are all entitled to our individual opinions. What is your take on this issue? You can drop your comments and opinions below.
