“Shameless Igbos. The problems of Igbos are Igbos” – Apostle Johnson Suleman
Popular clergyman, Apostle Johnson Suleman has spoken against the ‘disunity’ amongst the Igbo clan during a recent sermon in his church.
According to the clergyman, Igbos do not support each other and are always quick to oppose each other, even in the presence of other tribes which shouldn’t be.
Speaking about the agitation for Biafra, Suleman said if the nation is eventually created, it’s an Igbo man that will still destroy it because they never agree.
Making reference to 1999 when an Igbo man named Evan Enwerem emerged as the Senate President, Suleman said he was removed by another Igbo man, Chuba Okadigbo, who was also replaced by Anyim Pius Anyim.
He concluded by saying the problem of Igbos are Igbos because they always betray and attack each other.
“Somebody from the South, somebody from the East. You betray your people. Look at this agitation for Biafra. Who are the people attacking Biafra most, Igbos. Shameless Igbos.
Am I in support of Nigeria dividing, No!. Am I in support of Nigeria seperating, No. Do I believe we should be together? Yes. But even if you don’t agree with the man who is your brother, should you say it publicly if you are not a fool? Can’t you say it amongst your people?
If today they get that Biafra, it is an Igbo man that will scatter it. That is the truth.
During the time of the Senate. When an Igbo man became a senator, it was an Igbo man that removed him. You remember the Enwerem, Chuba Okadigbo, Pius Anyim…remember all of them? It was Igbo that was removing Igbos. That was the first and shortest Senate Presidency we have had in this country.
An Igbo man employs an Igbo boy to sell in his shop, he will wreck him. he will carry all the man’s money, he will buy land. He wouldn’t wait to be settled.
The problem of Igbo is Igbo. I repeat it, if you sell your brother, even the buyers will not trust you.”
