Ndi Igbo Have the Right to Reside in Any Part  Of Northern Nigeria- Jonathan 

Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan has on Thursday morning released a statement on the ultimatum issued to the Igbo in the North to leave the region.

Recall that Ikenga Chronicles had earlier reported that a coalition of Northern Youth Groups had given all Igbo people residing in any part of Northern Nigeria three months to relocate to their places of origin.

Reacting, however Jonathan in a post on his social media page affirmed that every Nigerian has the right to live in any part of the country.

He 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 stillbirths 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 Nigeria.–GEJ.”
