Igbos will not be intimidated in Yobe - Gov. Gaidam

His Excellency Governor Ibrahim Gaidam has followed recent media reports indicating that some Northern youths have issued threats to Igbo people living in the North to leave this part of the country before October 1st in response to agitation for the creation of the State of Biafra by the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) organisation.
His Excellency Governor Gaidam considers the threat against the Igbo as unfortunate, unlawful, and unwarranted.
Like other Nigerians, the Igbos have a right that is fully guaranteed by our constitution to live in any part of the country of their choice.
As a multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural society, part of our nation’s strength lies in the diversity of its people. It is what has moved every successful nation forward.
In Yobe State, the Igbos, like the people of other ethnicities, have lived and engaged peacefully with their neighbours.
The Yobe State Government therefore assures them that it will not allow anyone to intimidate or threaten them and will use the full resources of law enforcement to see to that.
His Excellency Governor Gaidam strongly believes in a Nigeria in which all its people live peacefully with one another, a country where political disagreements are settled not through threats and violent conduct but through dialogue and give-and-take.
His Excellency the governor reminds youths in the North and in every part of the country that as tomorrow’s leaders, they have a responsibility and a stake to contribute to the peace and stability of the nation.
The governor also believes that political and community leaders in every part of the country have a responsibility, as well, to guide the youths to responsible conduct and to speak against violence or tendency to violence.
It is through peace and unity, and not division and disunity, that our dream of a better, more prosperous Nigeria will come true.

Director of Press Affairs to His Excellency Governor Ibrahim Gaidam
