Human Rights & FreedomNewsNigeriaMarginalisation of Igbos May Lead to Nigeria’s Extinction – Paul Play Dairo

Veteran singer, songwriter, and producer, Paul Play Dairo fears that the continuous marginalisation of Igbos in Nigeria may lead to the country’s extinction.

The music star made this known via his Instagram page on Tuesday.

“I love Nigeria. I’ve lived in it most of my life. My fear is if the marginalisation of Igbos continues, we may not have this country in some years to come,” Dairo wrote.

As an addendum, the Angel of my Life crooner likened the deprivation of the Igbos from power to a situation where a group of people is being cheated of their rights.

He noted that Nigerians who do not believe that the Igbos deserve a shot at leadership are selfish and unreasonable.

“I love this country. I can never choose another country over my country. I am Yoruba but I love all Nigerians, no matter the tribe. My career enjoyed more patronage in the East, South, and North, more than in the West where I am from,” he added.

“I am grateful for the opportunities all Nigerians gave me to have a shot at stardom and popularity. I don’t take that for granted. In fact, I remain grateful for the rest of my life.

“However truth must be told, without fear or favour, without care about whose ox is gored. I know some will come out and say this should not be on the basis of tribe. Yes but I analyse issues by putting myself in the shoes of those who feel cheated.

“It’s like having two of my friends with me and we are eating from a plate after being hungry for days. Then my friends are busy eating while they hold my hands and they keep telling me they’re eating for me. Please think about it.

“I will be a fool to be quiet and stay hungry. But it won’t be long before I rebel and get violent because I am hungry yet I’m being held from having my share.

“Whoever calls himself a Nigerian and feels the Igbos do not deserve a shot is just being selfish and unreasonable. The signs are being written on the wall but we keep thinking the terror now growing in the East will die down or will go away. Hmmm. I hope I’m wrong because this peace won’t be for long.

“I come in peace. I believe in equal rights and justice for all. GOD BLESS NIGERIA. Sorry GOD HAS ALREADY BLESSED NIGERIA. It’s up to me and you not to ‘UNBLESS’ IT. Shalom.”
