He said this after receiving the Igbos Delegates Assembly to discuss the quit notice given Igbos in the area by Arewa youths.
“Even if you want to go on your own, we will not allow you to leave. There is a difference between ‘I will not go’ and ‘there is nowhere I can go’. You don’t have anywhere to go; this place is your home”, the governor told the delegation.
He also pointed out that there's no basis to threaten other Nigerians, who collectively fought for the nation’s independence.
“Those advocating ethnic agitation from the East are not speaking for all Igbos. Those of us, who as youth witnessed the Civil war, will never advocate secession”, he said.
According to him, the Northern youth who issued quit notice to Igbos in the region have also been called to order by elders, civic and political leaders, including governors and the Sultan of Sokoto, because all well-meaning people believe in one Nigeria.
“When you have youths who have no elders, they are similar to riding a horse without a bridle. It can behave anyhow and anything can happen. This is what is happening”, he said.
