Northern Youths Threatening Igbos Were Sponsored – Buhari’s Aide

Babafemi Ojudu, president Buhari’s special adviser on Political Matters, has revealed that the northern youths, who gave the October 1 quit notice to Igbo resident in the region were sponsored.

Ojudu revealed this in Abuja over the weekend during a meeting with regional youth leaders, organised by the Office of the Special Assistant to the President on Youth and Student Affairs.

According to Ojudu, “only God knows how much some elites, who hid behind the curtains, paid those who made that declaration in Kaduna,” he said.

His words: “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,’’ Ojudu said.
