Anti-Igbo song: Stop provoking Igbos – Orji Kalu warns


Former Abia State governor, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, has strongly frowned at a provocative song against Ndigbo currently circulating in the countryy.

The ace politician and business mogul said Nigeria’s ethnic, religious, cultural and political diversity ‎should be seen as an advantage rather than a minus, and as such hate speeches should be discouraged at all levels.

He lambasted the sponsors of the hate song, adding, “Nigeria has come to stay as a heterogeneous nation and no amount of hate campaign can break the country.”

Kalu made the remarks yesterday at a meeting with a group of Igbo professionals in London.

He said: “The anti-Igbo song is another ploy to provoke Ndigbo. However, despite all these nonsensical theatricals, Igbo will remain calm, peace loving and law abiding. We shall continue to resist all temptations as patriotic Nigerians.

“Nigeria is a diverse country of different ethnic groups, and no single tribe can lay claim to the country. We are all stakeholders, be it Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, Tiv, Efik, Ijaw and many others.

“Igbos will continue to play a significant role in national well being, regardless of these provocations, especially in the areas of employment generation, wealth creation and industrialisation.”
