“It is unfortunate that in a country where we fought for our unity, where we say our motor has to do with unity and whatever we call diversity, one person said they will not bring food to the south; it is a very sad mark in the unity of this country.
“And that is why we must appeal to our leaders to be a little more careful with their utterances. We think that everybody must contribute to the unity of this country.
“If you sell cattle, we allow you to sell, if you sell tomatoes, we allow you to sell, whatever the difference, are issues that Nigerian leaders can sit together on a round table and resolve but unfortunately you found those our leaders making those utterances.
“So we want to appeal to both the south and the north, see the unity of this country as very important and very primary. All of us still have the right to live in this country which is ours.”
Our people should begin to look inward especially for leaders to see how they can intensify some of the things that we bring from outside that can cushion the effect of whatever the blockage might cause.
