“Ndigbo should stop boxing themselves to a corner. We are serious contenders and members of the entity called Nigeria.”

Kalu said this while reacting to the proscription of the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra by the South-East Governors’ Forum.

He spoke on the sideline of the opening of the 2017 Annual Youth Summit organised by Junior Chamber International, Ikoyi, in collaboration with Orji Uzor Kalu Foundation at his ‘Camp Neya’ country home in Igbere, Bende Local Government Area of Abia.

Kalu said that given the huge investments by Ndigbo in different parts of the country, the people of South-East stood to suffer more than any other tribe, should Nigeria split.

“Ndigbo should stop boxing themselves to a corner. We are serious contenders and members of the entity called Nigeria.”

He, therefore, advised those agitating for the dissolution of Nigeria to have a rethink and work toward achieving peace and harmony in the country.
