Jibrin said that everybody had his opinion as a Nigerian, and that if public opinion said Igbos should have their country or the North should have theirs, “so be it”.

He cited Britain which conducted referendum on European Union membership, saying that due process must be followed before granting independence to any group.

He cautioned that agitations should be devoid of crisis and called on Nigerians to see themselves as one.

The BoT chairman also advised politicians and other groups, who had formed the habit of instigating youths to foment trouble in the society, to desist from such acts.

He said that the people should offer positive guide to the youths “for the growth and development of the nation”.

Jibrin said: “If Igbos wants their own independence as Biafra, is it enough for the Northern youths to give them quit notice to leave the north to their states?

“The answer is no. I will not instigate any youth to do that, and ‘quit notice’ is not a good word. This quit notice will not bring peace.

“We must live together, live in unity, unite ourselves and we should not threaten anybody as everybody has the right to live in Nigeria and we don’t have to call for war.”

He urged Nigerians to be law-abiding, respect constituted authorities and to shun negative tendencies and pursue interests of peace and national development always.
