Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti has said that only Igbo people will be able to survive if Nigeria breaks up.
Fayose said this Fayose stated this on Saturday, November 19 when the Ndigbo community in his state conferred him with the traditional title of ‘Nwanne – De – Namba at the Olukayode Stadium during the Igbo Cultural Day.
According to Vanguard, Fayose described Igbos as industrious people and will be able to handle Nigeria’s separation well if it happens.
He said: “whatever anybody says, the Igbos are a unique people in the country. God forbid, if Nigeria should break, they are the only nation that can survive because they are industrious people.
“All the permanent structures found everywhere are owned by the Igbo people. Wherever you go in the country, you will find an Igbo man there. “No Igbo man can vote for any other party in Ekiti State except the party I belong to because we are bonded with one another”
Chief Nathaniel Ezeonu who is the president-general of Ndigbo Community in South West told Fayose that they were interested in having their own market in the state.
He also begged the governor not to close Fayose market in Ekiti as it is believed to be populated by Igbo traders.
