peace-loving and wouldn’t do something to jeopardise the unity

of the nation.

a few consultations, which I’m conscious was not. So, so far as we’re involved,

we all know and have religion in the power of Nigerians to resolve their issues.

No matter their grievances are, the suitable authorities would

look into it, so that they shouldn’t take the regulation into their fingers.

“I need to advise the Ndigbo in Kano to easily ignore the menace and go about their regular companies.” He added:

“Already, the risk has heightened tension in some areas of Kano, significantly within the Sabon Gari space of the town predominantly occupied by non-indigenous group and a few are already being inundated with telephone calls from their respective hometowns to relocate to keep away from being trapped within the impending disaster.

entire factor is unlucky and coming at this stage of our nationwide development”.

within the north by attempting to cease a few of the actions of

the northern youth and ordering their arrest and prosecution, and likewise the intervention of ACF, the elders of the north, they’ve additionally intervened.

To date we’re telling all people to stay calm, particularly our individuals, they need to stay calm and go about their lawful enterprise and even be regulation abiding”.

processes in going concerning the referendum. The difficulty of this referendum is dependent upon whether

or not it’s there in our structure. And once more, all of it will

to take a seat down and discover answer to this rising drawback of the nation.”

focus on the whole Igbo within the north as if that’s their place.”

and likewise state that that’s our place.

And you can even cross-test, even final week, when there was a declaration of sit-at-house in help of Biafra State, all of us right here within the north went about our duties. So, that’s to indicate you that everyone has his personal approach of taking a look at his problem”.
