Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, the leader of the movement of the actualization of the sovereign state of Biafra, has labeled the Igbo tribe, the most ‘foolish’ in Nigeria.
Uwazuruike says that the Igbo race only fights for their pocket adding that this will make them lose the opportunity of leading the Presidency. He told Punch;
“Remember, it was the Igbo man that formed this PDP but they snatched it from him. Then, it was clear that an Igbo man would be the President of Nigeria. But in Jos, it was the Igbo who robbed themselves of that opportunity. The Igbo at that political event in Jos started speaking Hausa.
The Igbo started sponsoring (Olusegun) Obasanjo against (Alex) Ekwueme; giving N100 million and all that to another tribe to emerge. Let me tell you, the Igbo tribe is the most foolish tribe I have ever seen in the world.
While the Yoruba embraced unity, the Igbo man was the person speaking Hausa in Jos; the Igbo man was the one donating money against his own brother in Jos to another candidate.
Is that a wise tribe? Then, who should I apologize to for using the word ‘foolish?’ Then what have we achieved from the PDP? For how many years have the Yoruba people used the PDP? Eight years! Now, when it was the turn of the South-East, they sent it to South-South.”
