A Nigerian music star, Onyeka Onwenu, has lamented the political situation in the country after 50 years of the civil war noting that the Igbo tribes are still marginalised.
She spoke on Tuesday at an event held at MUSON Centre, Onikan, Lagos, stressing that much still need to be done in the country.
Onwenu said: “I have tried with the little talent that God has given me to use it for the betterment of my society and my country. But if I were a Yoruba or Hausa woman, I would probably have had more patronage, more help and more support than I have got by my self-help effort to raise this country up. But I’m not asking anybody for anything.
“I am angry at Nigeria; I am angry at this government which seems to be letting us down. I am angry at us as a people. I am angry at my people, Ndigbo, because if they have refused you, why are you refusing yourself? Stop complaining and do it for yourself, we’ve always been able to do that.”
