Elder statesman and a former Liaison Officer to President Shehu Shagari, Alhaji Tanko Yakassai has called for investigation to unravel why northern youths are moving to the South in spite of restrictions imposed by the federal government against interstate travels.
Yakassai also said those moving to the South are not almajiris, there the need to find out who they are and their motives.
He stated these while speaking to journalists.
“You need to investigate those who are sending these Almajirai. Is it true that they are Almajirai?: “I saw a bunch of youths wearing shirts; the Almajirai don’t wear shirts. In the beginning, they said Fulani and now they changed to Almajirai,”
“They wear the same things most of our compatriots wear. These are not the Almajirai from where I come from.
“This is part of the kill-and-hate Nigeria campaign and I will not be part of it. I am a committed Nigerian; I spent all my life, starting from 1953 when I was just 28 years old, to fight for the unity of Nigeria. I will not support or associate myself with anybody who is anti-Nigeria,” he said.
