Igbos are selfish, not mature to handle their affairs – Rev. Fr. Obidimma | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Parish Priest of the Blessed Iwene Tansi, Umudioka, in Anambra State, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Obidimma, has said Igbos clamoring for Biafra were “selfish in nature.”

Obidimma who said this while addressing journalists after meeting with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, wondered on the maturity of the South Easterners to handle their affairs.

The cleric, who expressed his support for the restructuring of Nigeria, also frowned at the inequitable distribution of the nation’s wealth at the detriment of some regions of the country.

According to Obidimma, “In our country Nigeria, it is certain that there is marginalisation, nepotism and tribalism.

“We are one Nigeria but some people are being marginalised and that is why we have all these agitations, but in everything, let there be prudence as we also pray for divine intervention.

“Kanu must know that Igbos are clamouring for Biafra but an average Igbo man is selfish in nature and the question is, how mature are we to handle our affairs.

“Where are the Igbo cabals and stakeholders; like Nnia Nwodo, Peter Obi, Emeka Anyaoku, Ifeanyi Ubah, Prof Charles Soludo, Emmanuel Iwuanwaywu, and many others.

“There has to be a unifying umbrella where they will gather and register their protest.”
