BOMBSHELL: NIGERIA can no longer be ONE, it's time to go our separate ways - Tanko Yakasai

 As condemnation trails the quit order issued the Igbos to leave the North, an elder statesman, Alhaji Tanko Yakasai has said that Nigeria will be better off if partitioned to enable all the ethnic nationalities to go their separate ways.
The quit notice, he insisted issued the Igbos and the denial of grazing rights to Fulani herdsmen do not augur well for the country.
He disclosed this while speaking with Daily Trust and insisted with all emphasis that the right denied the Fulani herdsmen constitutes an infringement on the constitution. 
He said, “The quit notice to Igbos by some people in the north and the purported denial of grazing right to Fulani herders in the south are against human rights provisions of the Nigerian constitution, which guaranteed freedom of movement to all Nigerians.” 

He said, “I read the joint position paper by the Arewa Citizens Action for change. First of all, I believe there is only a Nigerian citizenship, as long as we have a Nigeria. It is a good beginning, but I think we needed a deeper and more serious extermination of our situation, which I believe is overdue.
''It does not matter whether Nigeria will continue as a single political entity or not. We in the north need to have a kind of master plan for our future and the future of our people. It is wrong for us to be living in the way we are without any plan for our development for the present and for our future.”
Yakasai pointed out that, “A preparatory committee should be set up to define the objectives for the meeting. I for one never believed that Nigerians will be better off in separation.
“I have been having this conviction right from 1953 and my position remains the same till today. But, it will be foolhardy to sit idly by in the face of one agitation after another. In a period of uncertainty, it wrong to assume everything is normal.


“It is better to have as many options as possible at your disposal. Even if the need to use any option shall not arise, in the end, you have nothing to lose by being prepared for the unexpected.”
