The World Igbo Congress, the U.S. based Igbo Diaspora
umbrella organization, was shocked to learn that the South-East part of
Nigeria, was excluded in the planned use of $22.7 Billion loan Nigeria has
decided to borrow.
General: $5,853,000,000.00; South-West: $200,000,000.00;
South-South: $4,270,000,000.00; South-East: $0.00; North-West: $6,372,000,000.00; North-East:
$300,000,000.00; North-Central: $6,521,000,000.00.
The money is for targeted projects in the five geo-political
zones, but none in the South East. The question is why? Is it because the
South-East is no longer part of Nigeria? If the South-East is no longer part of
Nigeria, as it deserves no projects sited in other geo-political areas, it is
better to let them go their separate ways.
After all, they had wanted to go in 1967, but Nigeria
refused. The World Igbo Congress condemns in the strongest terms, this
non-inclusion of the South-East in the proceeds of a loan that all Nigerians
will end up paying – including the South-East Igbo.
The World Igbo Congress demands that this action be
corrected immediately without delay. While we commend the South-East
legislators in the Senate for standing up for what is right, the World Igbo
Congress will continue to weigh its international options. Sincerely yours,
Dr. Richard O. Nwachukwu
