Igbos Do Not Love Themselves-Billionaire Businessman, Arthur Eze

The Igbo clan seems to be accepting that there might never be an Igbo President in Nigeria.

Billionaire oil magnate, Arthur Eze amplified this position recently when he said that only God can make an Igbo man become the President of Nigeria.

Speaking in a media chat with newsmen in Anambra on Sunday, July 12, Eze stated that the Igbos are not united and do not love themselves.

He stated that the Northerners put him in the oil business and gave him mouthwatering contracts even without knowing him or taking into consideration where he comes from. He wondered if an Igbo man will ever do such a thing.

 

In his words

“For the Igbo to be President, they must love themselves. Do they love themselves? The North is very kind. If you go to northern Nigerian, you will see churches everywhere. There are churches in Kano, Sokoto, Kaduna, Abuja and others yet they say there is hatred. Do we (Igbo) love ourselves?

Only God can make an Igbo man President. We shall pray to God to find an Igbo man who has character to help people. I would prefer someone who has conscience, somebody who will remember me. I don’t care where you come from.

I went to the North, they didn’t know who I was. They gave me $12m for the construction of Kano TV in 1980. I didn’t have one naira then. It was the same thing in Katsina, Borno and Kaduna. Then, they put me in oil business. They didn’t care where I came from. Tell me any Igbo man who can do that?”
