“We want to make it clear that no such plot exists anywhere in Igboland. Ndigbo are known for their hospitality and this has not changed.

“The PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar has an Igbo man, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate for the election, he’s also an in-law to Ndigbo and should therefore feel free to come to the South-East for his campaign any day any time.”
