“THE IGBOKWE ROYAL FAMILY OF NNEWI:
I would like to advise the public that as a Family, we are an Igbo nationalist family. We have served the City of Nnewi for generations. We have served and supported the cause of Ndigbo for the entire history of our Family.
This dedication to the Cause of the Igbo Nation is at the core of our heritage.
We support all legitimate efforts to improve the plight of the Igbo Nation in a country that continues through policies of exclusion to demonstrate the Igbo are not wanted in the Nigerian Nation!
We condemn the unpatriotic, Igbo-hating and self-serving political actions of Joe Igbokwe, which debase our family’s proud history and heritage.
This self-serving noise, which has been coming out of Lagos does not and has never represented the views of our family! We condemn his actions in the strongest terms possible and caution the public to desist from equating these condemnable actions of this lonely political hack as representative of the views of the collective Igbokwe Royal Family!
As a family, we stand together against Nigeria’s heavy-handed treatment of our people.
We stand with the Igbo Nation!
Johnny Madukaejiaka Oforjebeogu Igbokwe”
