Kwankwaso speaks on Biafra, forbids Gov El-Rufai to arrest Arewa Youths over quit notice to Igbo
Former Kano State Governor and Senator representing Kano Central under the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwa so on Wednesday forbids, Governor El-Rufai to arrest members of Arewa Youths for the eviction order on Igbos to leave the region.
He gave the advice while speaking to newsmen in Abuja. He said the Arewa youths are better dialogued with instead of threatening them with arrest.
He said, “Dialogue and discussion with both sides is the way out; there is need for caution on both sides… Secession is not solution for lopsided appointments. I’m sure if you remember, there were issues over skewed appointment, but nobody called for break up. The way out is to be on the table.”
The former Kano governor blamed the agitation for secession to failure in governance and weakness of political parties.
“They cannot function well. Our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not well, I mean is not well funded. No serious meeting has taken place since we came on board.
“The opposition too has problem which seems to be irreconcilable. Under this, we are bound to have a kind of situation,” he added.
