What Kano Governor, Ganduje told 19 Igbo traditional rulers about October 1 quit notice

Governor of Kano State, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, on Saturday stated that Igbos in Kano and other parts of the North don’t need to leave as a result of the recent quit notice issued by Arewa Youths.

Ganduje made this clear this during a meeting with the Igbo Delegates Assembly (IDA) and Igbo Traditional rulers in the 19 northern states, led by IDA President-General, Chief Chi Nwogu, at the Government House in Kano.

According to the Governor, “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 no where I can go. You don’t have anywhere to go, this place is your home.

“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 stated.

Ganduje said the Northern youths who issued quit notice to Igbos in the region, had also been called to order by elders, including governors and the Sultan of Sokoto.

“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 stated.
