I Am An Igbo Man From Ikwerre & Let No One Deny Me My Igbo Ancestry – Amaechi Declares

The former Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Lagos State chapter, Joe Igbokwe, took to his social media page and reacted to the statement by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, who is also a presidential aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that he is an Igbo man. Joe Igbo writes,

“2023: “I Am An Igbo Man, Ikwerre People Are Igbo People”- Chibuike Amaechi

“My birth names are Igbo names, Chibuike Amaechi. I am an Igbo man. Let no one deny me my Igbo heritage, birthright, ancestry, please! Unless you want to be sectional and deny the Igbo people. I have made myself clear repeatedly, that I, Chibuike Amaechi from Ikwerre, am an Igbo man. Our people are Igbo people.”



Many Nigerians don’t know this about the Minister of Transportation. They taught he is from the Niger Delta, owing to the fact that he was the governor of Rivers state for 8 years and Rivers State is geographically categorized under the landmass of the Niger Delta.

But nobody knows the birthplace of a person more than the person. Amaechi has thrown the gauntlet that he is an Igbo man, it is now left to the people to confirm his ancestry through an investigation into his claims. Many Nigerians have categorized this claim by the Presidential aspirant as a political gimmick to win over the interest of the Igbo people.

But that is not true because it is not only the Igbo that will vote for him at the heneral election and more so that the bulk of votes in Nigeria does not come from the people of the South East. Based on INEC reports, the votes of the South-South are more than that of the South East with a wide margin in the past elections conducted in Nigeria.
