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.
