Aminu Suleiman who is a member of the House of Representatives has lent his support for the recent call by the Coalition Of Northern Youths, giving all the igbos three months to vacate northern Nigeria or be forcefully made to leave.
He retorted that the eastern part of the country have practically held the country Nigeria to ransom, through their constant threats of secessions and other unacceptable activities. According to the law-maker;
“I have read the statement of the Northern Youth Coalition. I may not completely say I share their vision a hundred percent, but they have found a supporter in me, because the people of the 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”.
Aminu Suleiman, who is also the chairman of the House Committee on Tertiary Education, also expressed his disappointment concerning the call for the arrest of the northern youths by some northern elites and especially the state Governor, Nasir el-Rufai. He further went on to say that;
“People like el-Rufai just played 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.
