Uzodinma: Ndigbo have highest stake in Nigeria

Senator Hope Uzodimma, Imo state governor

Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has said the Igbo have the highest stake in Nigeria contrary to orchestrated rumours in some quarters that the South East is disunited.

Uzodinma, while speaking when he received the Coalition of Northern Groups who paid him a courtesy call at the government house, Owerri, said his position could be justified because there is no community anywhere in the country where Igbo people are not living, doing their businesses and helping to improve the lot of the people.

“As a result, if there is anybody who needs peace and unity of the country, the Igbo need it most because it is only when the country is united and people are living in peace that the northerners in the South and the southerners in the North will prosper under an enabling environment and a very convivial atmosphere to do their business,” he added.
