Former Presidential Aide, Reno Omokri has praised the entrepreneurial prowess of the Igbos and opined that Africa should study the ethnic group to learn how to boost the African economy.
Omokri believes that it was not a coincidence that Nigeria experienced her fastest GFP ath the time an Igbo, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala doubled as the minister of Finance and the coordinating minister of the economy.
However, he also opened up a debate when he said he had never seen an Igbo beggar before.
Read his tweet below and see the reactions of that followed.
Since I was born till today, I‘ve NEVER seen an Igbo BEGGAR. Africa should study this most enterprising ethnic nationality. Nigeria had her fastest GFP growth in 2003-2007 and 2011-2015 under the hand of an Igbo @NOIweala. It can’t be a COINCIDENCE!
The Igbo are an African ethnic nationality that have produced more US dollar multimillionaires, per capita, through their apprenticeship system, than @HarvardHBS Business School. Igbos prove that WHO you know takes you farther than WHAT you know
