Reactions As Gov. Hope Uzodinma Urges Igbos To Forget About 2023

Published

The South East would produce a president of Nigeria the day they reached a peace agreement with it or would grow to be the nation’s economic and technological juggernaut, making it an unavoidable choice, according to Hope Uzodinma, the governor of Imo State, who has advised the region to forget about the presidency in 2023.

Elder statesman Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu gave a speech in Owerri, the state capital, to celebrate his 80th birthday. He claimed that the Igbo must adopt the Israeli model, whereby they became significant players on a world scale in key industries, making their emancipation inevitable.

Dwelling more on the similarities between the two situations, Uzodinma argued that Ndigbo, just like technology in many areas including farming with modern implements as opposed to hoes and cutlasses, must not insist on the method battling their peculiar situation in the country by the same method their founding fathers adopted.

“Must we continue on that part that didn’t work 70 years ago? What of innovation? What of research? What about deploying the right thought process to think like in the 21st century challenges turnaround? What our forefathers did, they farmed with hoes and shovels, but today, mechanised agriculture is in vogue and today, we’re migrating from the analogue way of agriculture to the mechanised way.

“The Igbo may be likened to the Jews. The Jews had the experiences and challenges we’re having today. Israel did not get independence because they went to war. They did not get independence because of violence. They were given independence because of their technological feats of the Manhattan Project.

“They used the Manhattan Project to negotiate with the other parts of the world and the United Nations, led by America, granted them independence. It is not about having your country, but how do you manage your country. One per cent of something is better than 100 per cent of nothing,” he said.
