'If Nigeria Should Break, Igbo Is The Only Nation That Can Survive' - Nwannedinamba Fayose

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has declared that in the event that the country is divided, only the Igbo nation can survive because of their resilience.

The Governor also boasted that there has been no politically motivated killing of anyone under his administration. Fayose Fayose stated this yesterday when the Ndigbo

Community in Ekiti conferred him with the traditional title of ‘Nwanne – Di – Namba at the Olukayode Stadium, Ado Ekiti during the Igbo Cultural Day.

Fayose deployed those he called’ fake political leaders ‘ who are only accessible to the people when they are looking for votes only to buy bullet proof cars and erect artificial walls around themselves so that they would not be accessible to the people after the poll.

He said, “whatever anybody says, the Igbos are a unique people in the country. God forbid, if Nigeria should break, they are the only nation that can survive because they are industrious people. ”

All the permanent structures found everywhere are owned by the Igbo people. Wherever you go in the country, you will find an igbo man there.

“No igbo man can vote for any other party in Ekiti State except the party I belong to because we are bonded with one another “, he said.

The Governor lamented that women have been relegated in the scheme of things adding that his administration would provide for them in the 2017 budget of Ekiti State.

Earlier in his address, the President General of Ndigbo Community in South West, Chief Nathaniel Ezeonu said that the Igbo people in Ekiti State want to have their own market.

He added that the traders want to acquire an uncompleted market along poly road Ado Ekiti which the state government has pegged at N380 millions.

He pleaded with Governor Fayose to rescind the decision to shut down Fayose market believed to be populated by igbo traders selling phones and other accessories.

Ezeonu said that the the theme of the Cultural Day titled :Ndigbo and Socio-economic Reality in Nigeria, Which way Forward, was apt because the race have contributed more to the economic development of the country.

To mark the occasion, major shops owned by the Igbos in the state capital were under lock and key.

Those Present at the conferment of the traditional title on the Governor included the state Executives, local government Chairmen as well as traditional rulers in Ekiti and igbo land.
