Northern Youths paid by Elites to give Oct 1 quit notice to Igbos - Senator Ojudu

It has been disclosed that the northern youths, who gave the October 1 quit notice to Igbos in the region were paid by some elite. The Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu said this in Abuja at the weekend, while representing Acting President Yemi Osinbajo at a meeting with regional youth leaders.

He said, “Only God knows how much some elites, who hid behind the curtains, paid those who made that declaration in Kaduna.”

“It will be worst for us if we allow some selfish people to push us to unnecessary war. Nigeria holds a lot of promises for all of us. I know and we all know that a lot of you have been excluded from the good things of this country and of course we can trace that to poor and bad governance over the years.

“But again, what we should be clamouring for is good governance, not separatism, not secession. This is all about elite competition. The youth are only being used as tools to promote socio-political disorder.

“Okay, if I don’t want to be importing things from Singapore, I can use this idea of Biafra to make money and some people are making huge money from it. Those, who were agitating and calling for Biafra before, are now singing another tune after building their palaces,’’ he said.

Ojudu enjoined the youth to voice out against hate speeches, saying no nation could develop under an atmosphere of social discontent.
