I don’t know if Igbos understand their power – Reno Omokri

Just few days ago, Area Fada, also known as Charley Boy gave an advice to the igbos to build their own economic hub, another renowned figure in the country, Reno Omokri followed in his foot steps. 


Omokri gave his advice to the Igbos through his twitter page, where he revealed how Igbos are a blessing to Nigeria as he listed his points on how they bring value to the country.

He noted that the Igbos are the economic builders of the country, stating that if they leave to develop their regions the economy’s remaining geopolitical zones may collapse.

His tweets reads:

“I don’t know if Igbos understand their power. If every Igbo man, woman and child in Nigeria returns home for a year, the economies of 5 geopolitical zones may collapse. You can’t say this about any other ethnicity. Treat Igbos well. Not for their sake. But for your region’s

If instead of investing in other zones, Igbos invest in only SE, the zone would not need federal allocation. Much of the IGR generated in Lagos, Kano and Kaduna is disproportionately generated by Igbos. Oil will come and go. The ingenuity of the Igbo is forever. Appreciate them.

Yoruba, Hausa and Igbo are uniquely placed to end tribalism in Nigeria by contesting for election in any state they reside in, to end this madness of Lagos for Yoruba and Kano for Hausas. You have large groups of Igbos and Yoruba in Kano & Hausas in Lagos. Contest where you live!

My tweets about the Igbo were spontaneous and provoked by recent comments and events in the country which show ignorance about the value they bring. I am not Igbo and I don’t have to be one to appreciate the obvious ingenuity God has domiciled in them

Igbos are like palm trees in the desert. If you see palm trees, you know water is there. If you see an Igbo in a town, you know progress is there. Not as if they go where progress is. They themselves are seed of progress that yield harvests of progress


To have a proper understanding of what the Igbo have achieved, consider that every Igbo man, woman and child in Nigeria was reduced to £20 after the civil war in 1970. But look at how far they have come since then. They turned adversity to prosperity 

No ethnic group are as Nigerian as the Igbo. An Igbo builds his family, his house and his businesses in whatever part of Nigeria he finds himself. They don’t exploit other regions. They expand other regions. It is a disservice to treat them as unwanted 

Instead of making Igbos feel unwelcome, leaders should welcome them. Anyone who thinks the Igbo really want to  break away does not understand economics. In 2003 @Elrufai revealed Igbos own 73% of land in Abuja. @Google it. That is commitment to Nigeria #IgboABlessingToNigeria

This idea that Igbo come to exploit other regions is unscientific. Igbos create value. They dont take value already created. Example, by opening shops, Igbos creates value by meeting a need. Without Igbo, the price of spare-parts in the North will be X 4 

It might shock you to know there are more Igbo doctors practicing in other parts of Nigeria than in the SE. Thousands of Igbos are battling Boko Haram in the NE. These are critical values. People who bring such value should be celebrated, not denigrated 

And to the Igbos themselves, I give this counsel-stop returning to the SE to register to vote and be voted for. Register and contest wherever you are. That shows that your commitment is TOTAL. Contest where you are for Governor, LGA Chairman and NASS 

If you as an Igbo keep returning to the SE to register to vote and be voted for, you agree with those who don’t see you as part of the regions where you live. You have a constitutionally guaranteed right to vote and be voted for where you are resident #IgboABlessingToNigeria

Finally, I am NOT Igbo or married to one. Some people think I‘m Igbo because of a video Onyeka Onwenu did calling me her son. She did not mean it literally. I am proud of Onyeka. She is not my mother. She just has an appreciation of my love for ndi’Igbo”


These statement from him seems to be as a result of the rising tensions ahead of the governorship elections in Lagos.

Hitvibz gathered that most Igbos staying in Lagos were told not to come out to vote, because it is feared that if they do, the opposition party, the People Democratic Party (PDP) will defeat the ruling All Progressive Congress party (APC).

One Mr. Rony took to twitter to explain there was so much tension surrounding the elections,.

He tweeted that:

“Exactly imagine yorubas in lagos asking igbos to stay indoors not to vote on guber natorial election day cos their vote might make PDP win Lagos. They even threaten to burn their shops should they ignore this  warning. Here you are talking trash cos you have free data”

The state is known for its ability to always produce governor from the ruling party APC, it has become an unofficial policy, adding that godfather-ism in the state politics would  have played a major role in keeping the governorship power within the APC party.

Do you agree with him? What is your take on this? Is it time for the Igbos to take their skills, businesses and determination away from the country’s major economic hub.

Will this be a good business decision for the millions of Igbo owned businesses across the state not forgetting the millions of jobs they create.

If granted the state would lose a chunk of its revenue but do you think the Igobs are on the back foot at the moment and if they would rather take their chances with the unknown than stick to the known?
