Ultimatum to Igbos: I Support Northern Youths – Kano House of Reps Member

A Kano State House of Representative member has declared support for the coalition of northern youths who asked Igbos to leave the region, Dailytrust reports.

The lawmaker Aminu Suleiman, who is the chairman of the House Committee on Tertiary Education, has said that while he may not support the coalition’s vision a hundred per cent, they have nevertheless found a supporter in him.

“I have read the statement of the Northern Youths Coalition. I may not completely say I share their vision one hundred per cent; but they have found a supporter in me, because the people of eastern Nigeria have taken this country to ransom. They have been causing serious problems to this country; they caused the civil war, which brought backwardness in this country. They have been using provocation to attract more attention than other parts of the country,” he said.

The lawmaker has also condemned the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai for calling for the arrest of the youths.

“People like El-Rufai just play to the gallery. I condemn him entirely for coming out to issue arrest warrant against the northern youths. Where was El-Rufai when IPOB and other secessionist groups in the South East were calling for secession? Don’t they have governors? Don’t they have elders? Why didn’t they caution them?” he said.

    This man must either be a terrorist or he is deliberately having a myopic view of the situation. I am yoruba before someone says that I am Ibo thats why I am against him. Boko Haram people have held this country to ransom for how many years. The tourism industry has suffered greatly on this account. Then a bunch of people rise up from this same ethnic group still have the guts to say they want to chase another another ethnic group from their land. Smh. Boko Haram has done worse for this country than the call for Biafra. Looking at him sef, one cannot expect him to say anything intelligent. I do not support the call for Biafra but this “lawmaker” should keep his misguided opinions to himself

      It’s ‘igbo’ not ‘ ibo’. Let’s start here.

    Two wrongs don’t make a right Mr house of representatives member. Leave El Rufai alone, he has done the right thing.

    All the enemies of Nigeria’s progress, from whichever part of the country they hail from, will fail, when Nigeria begins to rise again.

    Really? This guy is a lawmaker? Mr Lawmaker, the first question you should ask yourself is why the igbos feel the need to want their own country. You Northerners think Nigeria is yours alone. A clear example is the DSS recruitment. Three quarter of the people recruited were from the north. Nigeria is meant to be for everyone, not a particular tribe or religion, until that is addressed, you’ll always have discord.

    As a ‘law maker’ it’s glaring that he doesnt have a slight idea of what he is supporting. This agitation happens in almost every country and yet none has separated. It’s wrong to say dat d ibis are responsible for all d chaos in d country. Am from kaduna state, so you want to tell us dat it’s d ibos dat caused all d crisis dat has occurred in kaduna. I tell u dat I av bin to east severally and d northerners are dwelling without any trouble. The only time you tension in d east is when dia is chaos in d north. I av stayed, schooled and mingle wit d ibos and I don’t have matsala in dem. As a law maker we expect u to teach you followers how to tolerate and coexist wit one another. I also commend d governor of kaduna state. Nigeria must stand without any of her child absent.

      Are you minding the retard? So the killings in the north and middle belt which have been going on for decades were done by igbos Abi? No be ur illiterate cow people? Sponsored by people like you? How many of them have u chased away? This is how u know the rich extremists who sponsor those hausa/fulani killers! He just exposed himself. By the way, I’m from the middle belt and not igbo before ur supporters think I’m being sentimental. You, Mr. Lawmaker are a retarded, imbecilic terrorist.

    Wow! Igbo people caused backwardness? Really? Someone from the retrogressive north is uttering such words? #Ironyoftheday

      The irony that this guy would use the word backwardness.

      Where is boko haram? Who marries underaged girls? Who still has rising numbers of diseases prevented by vaccination? Who has overall poor education rate? Who has sharia law and like to chop off people’s hands? Where was Ese (the kidnapped 14 year old Bayelsa girl) taken too? Why did Ese return pregnant to her parents??

      Backwards indeed

    This clearly goes to show how the North promoted a people, who are cerebrally challenged into position of high authority.
    Imagine a prof and law maker, opening their dirty mouths to utter high level stupidity!!! It’s obviously idiots like this and that silly prof that have made the Igbo to agitate for Biafra!!! It is clearing out!!!
    This is a clear warning to all Nigerians that have Hausa/ Fulani as security men in your houses in Lagos and Abuja,this people have been preparing for war, so if you know what is good for you now sack them and employ proper security men who are qualified, I believe this group of people are ready for war!!! All of them who are muslims have radios and Hausa will be used to give them orders!!! once they give a command all of them will follow like cows,and start killing, according to Jihad,they are scattered all over Nigeria forming Okada and keke riders! It is a decoy!!!
    Please Nigerians be on alert, Nigeria is the most populous black nation,this is Islam at war, they want to take over the world for their master satan , who is a blood sucker!!! This is not about rights anymore, they are doing same in Europe and America!!! This has gone beyond clamourung for rights !!!

      @iyabo – why do u call Lacey stupid? You probably haven’t lived in the north so u think she’s talking trash. I have. I’m from the north but a Christian from a minority tribe and all that was stated up there is nothing but fact. Most killings are carried out by security guards, keke and okada riders. They migrate in large numbers to other states and start clamoring for rights, then the killings start so as to take over completely. Ask about Kaduna and Jos. Those states are owned by minority tribes but in their ignorance, they allowed the hausas migrate in large numbers. Now what do we see? See, They believe that this country (and the world at large) belongs to them and quote some parts of the Koran as justification. I have seen it. I have heard it. I have lost loved ones to these people. Lacey did not lie. Fear the hausas/fulani. Fear them.

      Iyabo, calling Lacey stupid shows there’s a lot about this crisis you should know. Lacey is correct on everything he/she wrote about Northern Muslims. I have had discussions about their use of Keke or Okada as a ploy. I left Enugu some weeks ago. Hausa/Fulani Muslims make up over 90% of Keke drivers in Enugu. And it’s a strategic move. A driver is expected to know every part of the city, including what might be a hideout during crisis. While in Enugu I listened to a man who came to church to give testimony on how he escaped being murdered by Fulani herdsmen who invaded his farm with their cows.
      Nigerians should open their eyes. This is not just about Igbos. If anything goes wrong today even Yoruba Muslims are not safe in in the North. Northern Christians are not safe either.
      Some people in Nigeria do not travel around while. Some think it’s merely mischievous for others to cry out against marginalization or injustice. These people will be the first to challenge anyone who narrates the true story.
      The situation is worse these days that it appears the government sanctions their murderous escapades. There are criminals in every part of the world but the difference in the case of Nigeria is that they kill barefaced, get away with it, get the government’s tacit encouragement and, sadly, get support from other Nigerians who will say ‘ serves them right, shebi they want Biafra’. And some of those who make these comments think they are safe. Story!

      Mulikat, not everything is a muslim name.

      It’s not Bafira (after now, you will even say Bafiratu), it’s BIAFRA.

    I believe all Igbos should leave the north enough is enough. Take your business and leave. Burn all your property to the ground. This trash is getting too much. And the Hausa should do same. Go back to their land
