The acting President, Professor Yemi Osibanjo in a meeting held at the Presidential Banquet Hall in Abuja on Sunday with traditional leaders from the South East did not mince words with his displeasure with the various drumbeats of war coming from the different parts of the country. He promised to deal decisively with Arewa and Biafra agitators if they continue with their unconstitutional agitation for succession. That it is a violation of the Nigerian constitution. This warning is against the backdrop of the recent quit notice issued to Igbo’s leaving in Northern Nigeria by the Arewa youth group.

Osibanjo has been consulting with the leaders of these regions, since the recent call for succession began.

The acting President said that “the manner of those agitations, the method and objectives are wrong, unlawful and in violation of the laws of Nigeria and the Constitution”. He stated that the call by the groups for Nigerians of other extraction to leave their region was wrong. According to him, Section 2 of the nation’s Constitution makes Nigeria an indivisible and indissoluble state. That under the law of the country, Nigeria remains unbreakable, it would be wrong as men and women of goodwill in this generation to toy with the sacrifices that have been made and paid for the unity of this country. The only way to get things done right is by doing what is right and not to threaten the integrity of the nation by outright disobedience of its laws.”

While meeting with the group, Osibanjo told them that the present government is committed to listening to all the reasons behind the various agitations and ready to ensure that every citizen of this country, irrespective of where you are from gets justice.

Another meeting has been slated for Monday by the acting President to meet with traditional leaders from the North on the need for tolerance and obedience to the nation’s Constitution.
