Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State, on Friday, called on Nigerians to give the Muhammadu Buhari-led government the needed support towards dousing the tension created by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)
Masari, who gave the charge shortly after joining President Muhammadu Buhari for Jumaat Service at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, said Nigerians should be responsible in terms of dealing with issues of this nature.
“On the general note on what is going on in the country, I think there is a need for Nigerians to be very responsible in terms of dealing with issues of this kind in this country.
“When we heard the problem of Boko Haram in this country when it started, we all looked the other way and it nearly consumed the nation. So under this circumstances, any agitation that is likely to lead the nation to the kind of problem we had, I think all Nigerians should support the government and put a stop to it,” he said.
On the tension in the country, he said the Katsina State government has put in necessary measures to ensure that the people living in the state, irrespective of where they come from, are safe.
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
