He appealed to the northern leaders to have a rethink, “if we let Nigeria be, then there can be a Nigeria we can go back to in the future, but if we bring Nigeria down, then there will be no Nigeria to go back to in the future.”

“And we want to speak to the political leaders in the North, this violence is destroying the economy of the North. People that are sustaining the economy of the North are fleeing the area, because their lives are no longer safe. On the long run, what they (the leaders) think they are gaining on the short term is bitter nothing, on the long run, is a major loss,” he said.
