Former Minister of Health, Prof A.B.C. Nwosu, has described Igbos as lazy thinkers, who are acting strangely ahead of the 2019 general elections.
According to him, it is sad to note that most Igbo people are of the opinion that if they support President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019, they will automatically become President in 2023.
Speaking with Daily Sun, Nwosu maintained that it would be difficult for an Igbo man to emerge as President in 2023, because, “The Igbo are acting very strangely on 2019.
According to him:
“They are some lazy thinkers, who think that if you let the present order continue, and after four years, you just go and pick it because it is your turn.
“It won’t happen that way. If the Igbo are not aggressive about who becomes president in 2019, and aggressive that they are in the centre of power, and they are represented in the centre of power, how can power where they are not represented be handed over to them in 2023?
“What if the power where they are not represented hands it over to another person? Then you see the persons again drag out their knives and matchetes and go into the local markets and start shouting, Enyimba Enyi.
“This is the time to struggle to be part of the presidency. They will either be the vice president completely and be represented in all national structures of power.”
In a similar chastisement of fellow Igbo men, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike who is the founder and leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB had mentioned that the Igbo tribe is the most foolish tribe in the world.
According to chief Ralph Uwazuruike, the Igbos were instrumental in the creation of the Peoples Democratic Party, but as a result of their greed and foolishness, the party was snatched from them.
