Mallam El-Rufai meets Igbo leaders

At a courtesy visit to the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, the Igbo Delegate Assembly (IDA) thanked both the Federal Government and the Governor of the State for the timely response and intervention which led to a peaceful resolution following the ultimatum given to Igbos in the north by a group of Northern Youths.

The group, which is made up of Igbo community leaders from the 19 Northern States was led by their President, who said that Igbo leaders do not support the division of Nigeria, rather they called for a restructuring of the country and a look into the level of unemployment.

The leader went on to state that the group believes that the country is better as one and praised the leadership qualities of the Governor, pledging their loyalty to him.

The Governor in his response charged the Igbo leaders to use their positions to preach unity in Nigeria, saying that “Those calling for war and division in Nigeria are uneducated, unexposed and are short sighted.”

Finally, he assured them of their safety in the north and promised to “make an example of those who gave the ultimatum for Igbos to leave the North.”

    Bether as one but with decentralized power .
    We need less power in the center. This unitary , all power in Abuja , doesn’t work. It is the reason people are killing themselves be president. It is expensive to run and attractions person who are more interested in the power in the center, than getting things done.

      Yes, I agree. If there is true Federalism, I believe this will work better.

    So, all this is happening not once has buhari said anything. It’s good this whole division rhetoric is addressed. Igbos are funny when they say is it by force to stay in a country they don’t want. Ok, do what you believe is best for you then. Don’t just point fingers if the outcome doesn’t favor Igbos again. My thing is, Igbos should focus on developing the East and urge the government to help instead. Be strategic like Yorubas, the west is the most developed and progressive. Let’s develop our other natural resources not just oil. My south south people there’s more to us than oil.

    The Muslim North is the group that needs to leave Nigeria but they are pretending under one Nigeria because of the benefits. These backward northern leaders are the ones sponsoring the same youths they call jobless. El Rufai(devil in disguise), he should speak to his people to preach unity.
    They don’t believe in a better Nigeria hence their failure in government.
    It’s time for restructuring the whole system, it’s stagnant and dead.
