Former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has cautioned his fellow Igbos that they would be the worst hit if Nigeria breaks up.

According to Okorocha, Igbos stand to lose much if they break up. Okorocha spoke in Abuja while addressing some women groups.

He said: “It is only an Igbo man that goes to a place and remains put in that place, buys a land and builds a house for his family without feeling insecure. The Igbo’s will lose more if Nigeria divides.


“Most Nigerian leaders who were successful had one thing or the other to do with the Igbos. It is either they married Igbo women or had some links with them. I can call names like, former President, Obasanjo; former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Buba Marwa, just to name a few”.

Recall Okorocha had bad blood with Gulak over the APC primary election in Imo State prior to the 2019 general elections after Gulak claimed Okorocha wanted his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, to win the party’s primary election.

 Special Adviser on media to Okorocha, Sam Onwuemeodo issued a statement that reacted to the death of Gulak. 

The statement read: “Okorocha has outrightly condemned the unfortunate murder of one of the front row politicians in this country, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, describing his death, as unfortunate and disheartening,


“Senator Okorocha has also sent his heartfelt condolences to the family of Alhaji Gulak and to the government of Adamawa State, over the death of the politician, explaining that, the nation at large and Adamawa State in particular, have lost a very vibrant politician.

“He regretted that politics has in recent time, been allowed to eat deep into the fabric of the nations life, so much so that, when certain situations like the death of Gulak arise, leaders would foot-drag over what they should have ordinarily done or say, because of the needless political colourations some leaders have chosen to give to every incident.
