Abia Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu says the people of the South-East have shown more faith in a united Nigeria than any other region.
Speaking to the media, Ikpeazu said a pointer to the faith in the country is why Igbo reside and have business ventures in all parts of the country.
“If the questions we ask in this country today are whether there are inequalities, there are gaps, there are people who don’t feel that they have been fairly treated either as an individual or as a family or as a geopolitical zone, the answer is yes.
“There is agitation in the North East. There is agitation in the South West. Of course, there is agitation in the South East but I dare say that there is no other ethnic group in this country that has as much faith in Nigeria as a country, one united country than the people of the South East.
“You can count how many big businesses belonging to the South Westerners that are in Aba. You can count how many big businesses belonging to the people from the North East, North West, North Central that you can find in Owerri, you cannot find a four-storey building belonging to somebody from the North East anywhere in the South East,” he said.
