WE Are Igbos – comment:
This is what ‘Bring home your investment is all about’. The factory at Nnewi is now an international brand.
We join hands to urge our people to bring down their investments home. They may wish to have headquarters at other parts of the country. This is what Europeans do. They all have their headquarters in London, but none of their factories is in UK.
