A chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka has urged the Igbos to think home in terms of their investments to actualise the Biafran dream.
He said mere agitations for state of Biafra would not bring about Biafra, rather it will come through direct investments into Igbo land.
Chief Ezeonwuka, a Board of Trustee members of APGA, who spoke to newsmen in Rojeny game village Oba, Anambra State, on Saturday, said that it was disheartened that the Igbos preferred developing other cities and ignoring their homes.
According to him, the igbo’s lack of “think-home philosophy” and their continued building of mansions and factories in diaspora without recourse to invest in their homelands was disheartening.
The Igbos asking for Biafra at the same time not investing in the land was a wishful thinking, he said.
“Why do we continued to invest heavily outside igbo land when such investments could have been enough to give the Igbo political and economic independence without agitation,” he queried.
“Nobody should give Ndigbo Biafra. We already have Biafra here with us and Biafra belongs to us as was declared on May 30, 1967. It is an act of stupidity to ask anybody to give us Biafra. The land of Biafra is crying because our people in diaspora have abandoned it to develop other areas like Abuja, Lagos and other places and you are here telling them to give you Biafra, that is stupidity in the highest order,” he said.
