IGBOS HAVE BEEN MADE THE THIRD CLASS CITIZENS – AFENIFERE
Ahead of the 2019 election, a chieftain of the apex Yoruba social-political organization, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo, has said that the Igbos has been made the third class citizens by the present administration.
Adebanjo was the representative of the Afenifere at a 2-day event that marked the Igbo Cultural Day in Owerri, Imo State.
The elder statesman said that the Igbo people have been treated unfairly in their own country.
According to him, “Never in the history of this country has Ndigbo been so marginalized, denied their fundamental human rights and traumatized as they are today.
“In fact, never at any time has Nigeria been at a crossroad as it is today and Ndigbo is feeling the main brunt of it.
“Ndigbo have been completely emasculated and dehumanized in their fatherland.”
He said such treatment “has made the Igbo third class citizens, a little short of the slave trade era.”
