‘Igbo & Yoruba Responsible For Nigeria’s Problems’- Ezeife

A former Governor of old Anambra State, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has revealed what will happen when Igbo and Yoruba come together to pursue one purpose in the country.
Ezeife stated that the Igbo and the Yoruba were jointly responsible for all the negative developments in Nigeria.
Speaking with The Punch, the former presidential adviser said as long as the tribes go lone-ranging in the Nigerian system, neither party will get what it wants.
He said, “The moment the Yoruba and the Igbo play joint venture in Nigerian politics, the Hausa, the Fulani and all the groups in Nigeria, large and small, will begin to celebrate the greatness of Nigeria.
“Yes, you talk about genesis; I will give factual history without blaming anybody. In 1952, with (Dr. Nnamdi) Azikiwe taking over from Herbert Macaulay against the Yoruba to run the National Council of Nigeria and the Cameroons, the NCNC won the election into the Western House of Assembly and Zik (Azikiwe) went there to go and become premier.
“Because they had a comfortable majority, on the day the assembly was inaugurated and things were supposed to be done, Awo (Chief Obafemi Awolowo) and the Yoruba had lobbied the majority of the people, who were elected under the NCNC, to change camps, ‘cross carpet’ to the Action Group.”
