Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose believes that only the Igbo tribe can survive in isolation if Nigeria breaks up.

Fayose also described the Igbos as a “unique people in the country.”

“Whatever anybody says, the Igbos are a unique people in the country. God forbid, if Nigeria should break, they are the only nation that can survive because they are industrious people,” Fayose said on Saturday, November 19, after being conferred with a title by the Igbo community in Ekiti," he said.

“All the permanent structures found everywhere are owned by the Igbo people. Wherever you go in the country, you will find an Igbo man there.

“No Igbo man can vote for any other party in Ekiti State except the party I belong to because we are bonded with one another,” he added.
