Most Rev, Emmanuel Chukwuma Anglican Archbishop of Enugu Province, said that Igbo Leadership is in Confusion.
The Bishop, said this while privately marking his 30th anniversary as Bishop at Bishop’s court, pointed out that until Ndigbo trust themselves and bring out somebody as their leader and trust him and he himself will know that a trust has been bestowed on him, “we cannot move forward.”
Chukwuma, while thanking God for his mercies on him, urged national assembly members of Igbo extraction to come together in one voice and fight for a common cause to move forward.
“The Igbo leadership is in shambles, they have not shown good leadership in the sense that this is the only area where people don’t appreciate leadership.
“We don’t have respect for the elders. The Hausa and Yoruba will have a leader and follow their leaders but Igbo, it’s difficult to really get a leader to follow because either followers don’t have the trust or the leaders themselves are self centered and selfish. That is the problem.
“Until we are able to trust ourselves and bring out somebody who is a leader and trust him and he himself knows that a trust has been bestowed on him and try to be firm and sincere, we cannot move forward.
“Look at the politicians from the southeast who called themselves leaders, they have never come together to discuss about southeast and together fight for it.
