An Igbo group, Igbo for a Progressive Nigeria, IPAN, has expressed its supports for a united Nigeria, but with equal rights for all citizens.

President of the group, Mr Lawrence Onwuzulike, who spoke with journalists in Awka, Anambra State on Wednesday said such an arrangement would favour the Igbo more than a bid for secession and promised to continue working for the unity of Nigeria.

“This (Nigeria) is our country. We are not like black Americans who are begging to be seen as Americans. This is our country, and we are proud of her. We are happy as a united country, but first we must be sure that all the rights accruing to people in other parts of the country also accrue to us.

“Our interest is how to develop Igbo land, how to galvanize our people to ensure that they bring back their resources for the development of Igbo land. We want an Igbo land where all the companies owned by big Igbo businessmen would have their head offices in Igboland, and maintain branches in other places.

“The situation where people maintain head offices in other places and come to Awka road to open a small branch in one room is what we are against.

“First, let the ruling government provide equal opportunity for Igbo people in Nigeria, and second, let our brothers and sisters who are well to do make it a matter of policy to establish their businesses in Igbo land. In that way, we will develop our homeland,”
