Igbos are marginalised, says Jonathan’s aide

Reno Omokri, the spokesman of former Nigerian President Goodluck  Jonathan, has said the Igbo people are being marginalized in Nigeria.
On his facebook wall, he wrote “If you do not believe that the Igbos are marginalized in Nigeria then visit Aba and Nnewi. There, Nigerians of Igbo origin manufacture (not assemble) all manner of products that begins from letter A and end with letter Z.
“In Aba alone, they produce 1 million pairs of shoes every day (you read me right everyday). In Nnewi, they have more manufacturing companies than they have in Nigeria’s largest geo-political zone, the Northwest. Yet, both Anambra or Abia do not have an airport even though their citizens are the heaviest commercial travelers in Nigeria”.
“Yet, some states with little or no commercial activity have not just an airport, but a fully functional international airport. Try and explain this to yourself without using the word marginalization.
