We want to tell you that we are not part of those, who repay good with evil. These are people stranded in Germany venting their frustrations on the wrong person.

“If anybody in Igbo land deserves this type of treatment, it is definitely not you, our mentor and defender. Those of us at home know how you have been fighting for Ndigbo, speaking up for Ndigbo, and even facilitated the release of Nnamdi Kanu at the risk of your political career.

“We burned with rage. But we read in the press that you have forgiven them and we were disarmed. As our s our leader, we cannot do otherwise. We can only try to emulate your large heart and statesmanship. But we warn that nobody should try this nonsense again. We are all Ndigbo and nobody should provoke internal conflict. But even at that, we trouped out in our thousands because we want to hear it directly from you that you have forgiven them”.

He explained that he was in Germany for serious business of investment drive for the good of the South East.

“My major mission to Germany to also take the investment meetings facilitated by Ndigbo Germany on the sidelines of convention to meet to bring investments to Igbo land, create job for our youth, and expand opportunities. I am happy that I was able to leverage on the contacts and influence of our people in Europe. I am also in touch with our governors, briefing them and no distant time, the result of my meetings will start trickling in.

“I urge us to just forgive, put the Germany incident behind us so that we can all face the real challenges facing us as Ndigbo and as a nation”, he stated.
