The former governor also urged Igbo s to identify with their leaders in the push for restructuring.
According to Obi, “I believe in the restructure of Nigeria but for us as Ndigbo, emphasis should be on investing in our future more that political demands.
“We should invest in education; knowledge, because the future of the world is knowledge- driven economy.
“Are we going to die talking about yesterday? We should show love and care for ourselves. We should encourage local investments.
“Position and power is not all that matters. we Igbos must not stop where Nigeria dropped us.”
