Listen to article

Chief Victor Umeh who is the Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District in the red chamber of the National Assembly has asserted that Igbo as the aborigines of Nigeria should not be subjected to xenophobic attacks in any part of the country. 

Speaking in an interview at the venue of 2023 Umunri Cultural Fiesta (Oganiru Umunri), held in the Enugwu-Agidi community in Njikoka Local Government Area, Umeh submitted that the Igbo as the aborigines of Nigeria have the rights to reside in any part of Nigeria and do their business according to the guarantees offered by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

He issued a warning that no one should be permitted to carry out an attack on Igbo people who live throughout Nigeria, conducting their legal business and doing their part to further the welfare of the communities in which they reside.

While describing Ndigbo as the indigenous people of Nigeria, the Senator, maintained that the Igbo did not migrate to Nigeria nor come from a new place outside Nigeria to become Nigerians.

Rather, they are the aborigines of Nigeria who have the right to reside in any part of the country to do their business.

Umeh stated that Lagos State was one of those places in Nigeria the Igbo live, pointing out that without Igbo in Lagos State their economy will collapse completely and become nothing because, according to him, the Igbo built houses in Lagos State and as well make it strong and live there happily.

He insisted that the Logosians should allow Ndigbo to do their businesses because they are peace-loving and pay their taxes to Lagos State Government.

He stressed that anybody that is attacking the Igbo is drawing anarchy to themselves and Nigeria at large.
