Ex Kano State governor, Senator Rabiu Musa kwankwaso has weighed in on the order given to Igbos to leave the north by a coalition of northern groups.
“Igbo have nowhere to go. They have more assets in the North more than 80 percent or so of what the northerners have in the East. The land Igbo are holding in the North is more than the whole South East,” he said.
The Chairman of Senate Committee on National Planning and Economic Affairs, added that the agitation at both sides does not portray the country in good light among the comity of nations.
“The unity and development of the country is key to all other things, therefore we will continue to stand by it. Therefore, I call on all to join hands in ensuring that there is peace. We should use our resources to ensure that nobody raise hands to destroy the unity of the country. Talking of secession is going too far.
“Some people doing it because of their personal interest. I wouldn’t be surprised that the young man (Nnamdi Kanu) will contest for an election in the next general elections. They started agitation to galvanize support and at the end, they would contest for an election.”
