Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso has urged elder statesmen to urgently check the separatist agitations which pose a threat to the fragile peace in Nigeria.

Sen. Kwankwaso, an ex-governor of Kano state, advised the federal government to tread carefully in their dealings with youth factions from both the north and southeast. 

Speaking at a news conference in Abuja, the former governor advised that dialogue should be the only solution. Kwankwaso said:

“Even if one part of the country, rightly or wrongly, is aggrieved, in my opinion, talking of secession is going too far.” 

“The Igbo have nowhere to go. They have more assets in the North, more than 80 per cent or so of what the Northerners have in the East. The land the Igbo are holding in the North is more than the whole Southeast.” 

Sen. Kwankwaso urged Igbo leaders to stand up for the truth and advise their youths.
