Film producer and veteran actor, Bob-Manuel Udokwu, has urged all Igbos in the north to come back, plan and establish in their homeland.
He said this while making reference to the quit notice threat issued by the Coalition of Northern Youths supported by the Northern Elders Forum.
In his speech, Bob reiterated the fearless, hardworking and economic capabilities of Igbo people and asked them to come back with a little of what they have in the north. His words:
“Igbo’s take their wealth to other tribes and develop the place. They are the only people that can go to other tribes, buy lands and transform them into roads and mansions.
Whereas the reverse is the case when the people Igbos share this country with come to Igbo land. You hardly see them buy a piece of land talk of owning properties in Igbo land.
We accept them, live in peace with them and love them by giving them our food, water and everything they need to keep life going.
I am asking my fellow Igbos to come back. Let’s start doing good things from home. Just come with a little let’s beautify our blessed Igbo land.
Recall that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Saturday also asked Biafrans and Southerners in the north to leave the north and come back home.
