One of the Leaders of the Igbos in Lagos and an All Progressive Congress Party Chieftain, Joe Igbokwe, has replied to the former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani Kayode over his statement that "if the north blocks food supplies to the south, the south will block the supply of oil, refined product and oil money to the north."

Joe Igbokwe said on his Facebook page that " SMALL, SMALL WE WILL UNDERSTAND THAT NORTH CANNOT BE IGNORED. LET US PREPARE TO DRINK CRUDE OIL AS FOOD". This statement of Joe Igbokwe sparked reactions among his followers as follows.

It is imperative that we all know as Nigerians that we are together and will benefit each other as we are together than if we are divided. All regions in the country have peculiar resources that God the Almighty has blessed them with and can sustain the region.

For example, the North is blessed with abundant crops and animal. They have lands that can be cultivated for food throughout the year, and have the human resources to manage these crops' cultivation which are benefited by everybody in the country and neighboring countries such as Cameroon, Niger, Chad and others. If the North separate from the South, there will be scarcity of food commodities and if available, they will be very expensive and won't be easily affordable for the common man.

The South also has oil, most especially the Crude Oil, where the whole of the country get 65% of its internal generated revenue, and 88% of Nigeria's foreign exchange earning, even though the sector is less than 10% of the country's GDP. The proceeds from these oils are distributed as allocations among all tiers of government in Nigeria. So if the South decide to separate as well, some States in the country won't be able to survive.
