Igbos Will Suffer More if Nigeria Breaks up- Northern Elder Tanko Yakasai

The Chairman of Northern Elders Council, Alhaji Tanko Yakasai, has stated that Igbos, Hausas and Yorubas will suffer if Nigeria breaks up in the future.

He was reacting to the call for secession by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB. According to him, Igbos should not allow someone who wasn't born during the civil war to incite them to violence.
 
“I believe that the Federal Government was somewhat late in addressing the threats issued by the Igbo", he said in an interview published by the Punch.

“These threats by both the North and South are unconstitutional and illegal because every Nigerian has the right to live and work in any part of the country he or she chooses.

“I think the Igbo should not allow a man, who was not even born during the civil war to incite violence in the country.

“Both the Hausa and the Igbo are well travelled traders and if this country splits today, that opportunity is gone, a market of 180 million people.

“All the regions will suffer for it.”
