… And Jonathan reacts, says Nigerian have right to live anywhere

Nigeria’s former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has weighed in on the current ethnic tension following an ultimatum issued to the Igbos in the North to leave the region by a Northern Youth forum.  Jonathan took to his Facebook page on Thursday June 8 to issue a powerful message to Nigerians.
In his message, the former president stated that Nigerians have the right to live in any part of the country.
“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 Nigerian there are no still births or unwanted birth 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.
