Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji has reacted to the reports making rounds that she supported the Igbos in Lagos State.
Some media platform had quoted the actress saying:
“The Igbos struggle to make it in life. They are industrious, assiduous and sedulous. The Igbos also believe in helping one another.”
“That’s why you hear “Onye Aghana Nwanne Ya(Be your brother’s keeper).” There is also no lateness in making it in life among the Igbos because “Ebe Onye Oso Ruru, Onye Ije Geru(The destination of the running man is the same as the destination of the walking man).” and Uwa Mgbede Ka Mma(“the patient one reaps more benefits).”
“Igbo businessmen are scattered all over the world. Wherever they are, they make their homes, building houses & gentrifying districts.”
“Stop killing the Igbos. They will only make their money and go back to their land. And they know how to make legitimate money. Yes, where you see nothing, the Igbos with their gimlet eyes see “Ego,”.
Why responding to the statement which was attributed to her she stated that it was fake news. She wrote;
“Fake news. I didn’t say any of that. Stop peddling rumours and enabling those who start it. Do better.”
