We have to preach now to Igbos residing outside the southeast to stay put anywhere they reside. All these rumours of war and attacks are geared towards putting fear in them so as to flee back to the southeast before the election and then return after the election. We have to speak boldness to South Easterners. Make them understand that he who fights and runs away will live to fight another day. We don’t have to die many times before our death. Death will come when it will. It is very critical. That’s the only way 25% in 36 states will be possible.

In our last update, the Number of INEC Registered Voters of the Igbo People with PVCs are as follows:
S/E Igbo with PVCs Residents – 10,574,956;
S/E Igbo with PVCs resident in the 19 Northern States + Abuja – 12,800,226; (27%)
S/E Igbo with PVCs resident in South-South – 6,125,525 (43%)
S/E Igbo with PVCs resident in the South West – 6,505,555 (36%)
The total Igbo population nationwide with PVCs is 36,006,262.
I wish our people to know that there’s no cause for alarm. We’re our own problems. It’s for us to harness these and put them to effective use for our benefit and those of our children. We can’t allow these friends to put fear and doubt into us and posterity. As you are aware, the perception we are taught in marketing is reality. The above figures in relation to the Igbo could be more but not less.
One can see that the Igbo of the South-East with PVCS nationwide are the highest in voter strength and spread. Well coordinated, the Igbo nation including the Igbo of Rivers, Anioma, Akwa-Ibom, Cross River, Edo, Kogi, Benue, and the very few in Bayelsa can alone produce the President of Nigeria. It’s not a threat, they can also in collaboration with their grandchildren in different states of Nigeria whose mothers are Igbo daughters take over the electoral fortunes of most of the states of Nigeria. The obvious is achievable if we are united and committed to the cause.
