Former President, Goodluck Jonathan has weighed in on the heightened ethnic tension around the country following an Ultimatum issued to the Igbos in the north to leave the region by a Northern youth forum.
Jonathan stated clearly that Nigerians have the right to live in any part of the country. The former leader wrote:
“Every Nigerian citizen has an inalienable right to reside in any part of Nigeria. As Nigerians, we should all tailor our thoughts, actions and utterances to promote this and other rights. We are all brothers and sisters born from the womb of mother Nigeria.
“There are no still births or unwanted births from our mother. We are all one and equal and it is the responsibility of all men of
goodwill to appeal for calm and unity in our beloved country Nigerians. GEJ.”
