Northern Governors Forum Leader, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, has said that neither the Indigenous People of Biafra nor other separatist agitators can divide Nigeria.

Shettima, who is the governor of Borno State, said this on Monday in Kaduna at a summit organised by the Northern Elders Forum.

Shettima said it was foolhardy for anyone to believe that the country could be divided.

He said, “There is no ethnic nationality that has a greater stake in the continued existence of this country than the Igbo. But unfortunately those that have lost out in the chess of power politics will continue to form mischief.

“It is foolhardy for anybody to have the illusion that we can divide this nation; that we have an Igbo nation, a separate Ijaw nation or a separate Tiv nation or Kanuri nation.

“Believe me, the level of inter-ethnic relationship is so thick that it becomes difficult for anybody to divide this country into two, three or four pieces.

“It is level of our tolerance, our level of understanding and our level of accommodation that can really move this nation or any nation forward.”

The governor took a swipe at the Goodluck Jonathan administration, describing it as the greatest tragedy to have befallen the nation for quite sometimes, especially in the last eight years.

He said it was “an administration that made every single effort to divide this country along religious and ethnic lines”, adding that “deliberate effort was made especially in the North, to divide the people.”

He called on other northern leaders to work towards tackling the challenges in the region; the biggest which he said was poverty.

At the forum, which was attended by northern governors, senators, captains of industries, and retired senior military officers among others.

  4. The zoo Nigeria is not the only country that ever existed in the world but they were latter divided so the zoo must be divided the Almighty God the creator of the universe will do it whether you shetima the zoo president and other zoos like it or not. Biafra must come to stay.

  5. Your comment unfortunatley, those who has refused to correct the imbalance in the structuring of Nigeria are also the people who has sworn keep other zones as slaves, makes one to wonder why is it so hard to balance Nigeria up if its what would stop all this agitations?

  6. So gov. Shittims, the believe of northern elders is that every other region especially the south east and south south will remain your slaves forever. you don’t want to restructure Nigeria and you don’t want them to go, I think you people are jokers

  7. Who the socalled northern elders to determine the fate of all Nigerians. You see, this is the problem here the North behaving as if they own other people.

  8. I just don’t kn why people are talking to this man like this, did he address his words to your ppl, absolutely not, he is talking to his kinsmen, the people that uses religion to put their people to abject poverty and hunger, Mr shettima you mentioned igbos as ppl that has stacks in Nigerian, please what stacks ?, monkey is working baboon is shopping, the stacks you are talking about of an igbo man is just an individuals effort, chukwuemwka odimegwu Ojukwu left all his father’s properties to have Biafra, igbo man will surely survive without one kobo if kobo still exist in Nigeria, not to talk about naira that is nothing to write home about,
