Elegant Stallion, Onyeka Onwenu, has given notice to those intent on breaking up Nigeria that she would not have any option but to return to the South East in the event of such an outcome, even while praying for the togetherness and unity of the country.

Maintaining that Nigeria’s unity was not negotiable, the gifted songstress and Nollywood diva, told reporters ahead the virtual pre-book launch briefing and release of her memoir My Father’s Daughter, on Thursday, October 1, also took out time to call on her Igbo compatriots to look towards home in their developmental plans.

She said: “It doesn’t take away whatever you are doing in Lagos, Abuja, or Port Harcourt. You are free to live and do business wherever you are but remember back home, we are being marginalised for a long time. And our people have always done things for themselves.

“We built the Imo Airport. I was part of the process. It remains the only airport in the country that was built by the citizens and handed over to the Federal Government.

“My father went to school abroad, people in his home town collected money and supported him. That’s how we do things, we are communal people. So, I’m not afraid to go back home.

“If that happens (break-up), happens I will go back to the South-East because I want to go back home. And even if we don’t split, I want to do so much there.

“Nigerians must play less on tribalism by focusing on the positives inherent in the different ethnic groups that make up the country.

Using her marriage to a Yoruba Muslim that produced two children as a reference, the 68-year-old music star enjoined every Nigerian to uphold the country’s unity and stop insulting and denigrating each other.

“We are blessed with the richness of our culture and everyone should see themselves as one and not let divisions break the country,” she added, adding that 450-page book, which examines aspects of her life hitherto unknown to the public, was designed to give inspiration to the younger ones, especially the younger feminine gender.
