EKO HOT BLOG reports that presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Bauchi state Governor, Bala Mohammed, has said the agitation for to break-away from Nigeria by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is unrealistic.
Mohammed stated this during his visit to Anambra state on Friday to woo delegates of the PDP ahead of the presidential primary election.
The Bauchi governor described the call by IPOB for the South East to breakaway as unrealistic because Igbo were everywhere across Nigeria and owned“over half of the country.”
He maintained that the South-East has great entrepreneurial drive and enterprise potential that Nigeria must leverage to achieve industrialisation.
Mohammed said, “When I was Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, the Igbo capital investment in Abuja was over 50 per cent. That is the true position; not only in Abuja but also in Kano, Lagos, Kaduna and other states. So, we are interrelated and connected as a people in Nigeria.
“We need to stabilise that symbiosis that binds us together. When the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is talking about self-determination and self-actualisation, for where? When you own over half of the country? God may not give you everything, He has given something to you. That is the truth.
“Because of this, I am calling for this unity and fraternity among us. If the Igbo youth understand this, they will now know the need for peace and unity in the country.”
The presidential aspirant promised to bring out the best in every part of Nigeria if chosen to lead the country in 2023.
He said: “I’m coming to bring equity and justice to this country where everybody would be recognised, where leadership recruitment will be fair and just so that all sections of the country will have a sense of belonging. We will do it, I have benefited from this kind of justice and it is the only way out of Nigeria’s problems.”

Mohammed admitted to the Anambra PDP delegates that he’s aware that one of their own was also in the presidential race but urged them to support him considering his level of competence.
He added that the South-East is not the only region that feels marginalised as his own North-East is also suffering a similar fate.
