THE Governor of Kano State , Abudullahi Umar Gunduje, has insisted Igbo are not only Nigerians but form an intergral part of the North and therefore reserve the right to stay in any part of the north without fear or molestation.
This is in wake of the eviction order served the Igbo by Arewa Youths for them to quit the region on or before October 1, 2017.
The Governor made the disclosure when a delegation of Igbo Delegates Assembly led by the President-General, Chief Chi Nwogu, who were in Kano to hold meeting with the northern youths paid him a visit at the Government House in Kano.
Gunduje reminded the delegates that the northern leaders, including the political and traditional institutions in the region are against all forms of ethnic prejudice, as promoted by some Northern youths. 

According to the governor, “Even if you want to go on your own, we will not allow you to leave. There is a difference between I will not go and there is no where I can go. You don’t have anywhere to go, this place is your home. 

“If foreigners can reside comfortably in Kano and other parts of northern Nigeria and engaged in legitimate ventures, why not you. So, we want to let you know that there is no basis to threaten other Nigerians, who collectively fought for the nation’s independence. Those advocating ethnic agitation from the east are not speaking for all Igbos. Those of us, who as youth witnessed the Civil war, will never advocate secession,” Ganduje explained.

While speaking further on the quit notice, the governor reminded the delegates that the youths who issued the quit notice have in fact be cautioned and called to order by the  elders, including governors and the Sultan of Sokoto and by extension all well-meaning people who believe in one Nigeria.
“When you have youths who have no elders, they are similar to riding a horse without a bridle. It can behave anyhow and anything can happen. This is what is happening,” he added.
