“Igbos Can Deliver Strategic Leadership That Will Transform Nigeria” – Pete Edochie

According to a report by Igbostelevision.com, Pete Edochie granted an interview with BBC Igbo and he expressed worry that over 60 years after Nigeria’s Independence, the country has not had more than one Igbo person.

In Pete Edochie’s view, a president from the South East can deliver strategic leadership that will transform Nigeria.

He said, “Igbo people are Nigerians. In 1956 when Queen Elizabeth came, it was the vehicle of an Igbo man Odumegwu Ojukwu that was used to convey her, since he was one of the richest black man at the time.

“He never asked to be paid. Successful Nigerians in those early times were people of Igbo extraction: Power Mike in boxing, Chinua Achebe in literature. Even Ben Enwonwu, the Nigerian who painted the queen at the time, is Igbo.

“I myself as a successful actor am an Igbo man. Igbo, Hausa, and Yoruba are the major ethnic groups in Nigeria. Only once in the history of Nigeria has it emerged that an Igbo person became the head of state in Nigeria.

“That was Aguiyi Ironsi during the military government and his headship was short-lived. Since then, the north and the Yoruba have been sharing power between themselves, apart from Goodluck Jonathan who isn’t even Igbo.”
