The lawmaker representing Oshodi/Isolo Constituency II in Lagos state, Jude Idimogu has stated that it is too late for Igbos to pull out of Nigeria.
According to him, secession would be injurious to the Igbos.
“As a full blooded Igbo man and a Nigerian, I believe, Igbo staying in Nigeria as an entity will prosper the Igbo nation better than pulling out.
“After the 1967 Civil war, the Igbo man started all over again to build up; now Igbo nation has made progress in terms of economy and politics.
“Though the Igbo nation has not reached where it is expected to be politically, we should dialogue rather than be creating war scenarios.
“It is too late to pull out (of Nigeria), Igbo nation has united Nigeria because they have businesses everywhere in this country,” the lawmaker said.
