We always complain about how tribalism is loud and proud in Nigeria. Our leaders often fall to the trap of Identity Politics.. Tribalism however reached new heights as 16 Northern Youth Groups offered an ultimatum to Igbo citizens residing in their states demanding that they depart their bases in Northern Nigeria by October 1st before urging Northerners based in South Eastern states to also do the same.

On the reassuring side, it was great to see the Kaduna State Government respond by calling for the arrest of those behind the ultimatum while Igbo leaders have also suggested that with all the resources poured into the North they cannot be kicked out.

Hopefully, this doesn’t result in any violence against Nigerians based on where they are from.
