The Anglican Bishop of the Diocese of Egbu, Rt Rev Geoffrey Okorafor, has called on the Igbo to squarely address the problems militating against them.
He made the call on Sunday during a Eucharistic service of confirmation, admission and induction for Emeabiam Parish, at Christ Anglican Church Emeabiam in Owerri West Local Government Area of Imo State.
Okorafor noted that the Igbo must come to terms with present realities confronting the zone in the Nigeria context.
The Bishop said not even the agitation of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its leadership can solve problems of Ndigbo.
He bemoaned the lack of unity among Ndigbo and berated some groups championing the secession struggle for being at each other’s throats.
Okorafor, however, advised that they should not waste energy fighting each other, but appreciate the fact that they are pursuing common goals, which are to confront their oppressors, marginalisation and subjugation, as a race, in the national polity.
He stressed that until Ndigbo become united, they would continue to be denied their position as a vital component in the Nigerian polity.
