Arthur Eze while in a media chat with newsmen in Anambra state on Sunday, July 12, said that the Igbos are not united and do not love themselves.
According to him, the Northerners put him in the oil business and gave him mouthwatering contracts even without knowing him or taking into consideration where he comes from. He wondered if an Igbo man will ever do such a thing.
Read what he said below;
“For the Igbo to be President, they must love themselves. Do they love themselves? The North is very kind. If you go to northern Nigerian, you will see churches everywhere. There are churches in Kano, Sokoto, Kaduna, Abuja and others yet they say there is hatred. Do we (Igbo) love ourselves?
Only God can make an Igbo man President. We shall pray to God to find an Igbo man who has character to help people. I would prefer someone who has conscience, somebody who will remember me. I don’t care where you come from.
I went to the North, they didn’t know who I was. They gave me $12m for the construction of Kano TV in 1980. I didn’t have one naira then. It was the same thing in Katsina, Borno and Kaduna. Then, they put me in oil business. They didn’t care where I came from. Tell me any Igbo man who can do that?”
