The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has warned that the unity of the nation is being threatened by the trend of statements credited to some elements in the Northern part of the country.
Speaking on Sunday, Fayose warned the Federal Government to call to order such elements adding that the ultimatum given to Igbos living in the North could lead to anarchy.
He said this while reacting to a quit notice served on the Igbo in the north by the Coalition of Northern Groups, and which was recently backed by some northern elders, including a former Vice Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Prof. Ango Abdullahi.
Fayose said the unity of the nation was threatened like never before in the history of the country.
“The gap has widened beyond measure because of the body language of this administration. We are more divided than ever. The elements are emboldened because they believe their person is in office and nothing would happen.
“If this continued, it would further heat up the already tensed situation and promote distrust among ethnic groups in the country.”
Fayose urged the federal government to accept responsibility for trend and called for a decisive action to stop it.
“It is disheartening that a personality like (Ango) Abdullahi would support that; that’s danger lurking in the country.
“He should be invited for questioning by security agencies. Leaders should rise up and condemn this instead of giving tacit support to the ultimatum.
