locale in three months, expressing that on the first of October – Nigeria's Independence Day – "significant moves" including the recovery and control "of these landed assets at present claimed, leased or in any capacity delighted in by the thankless rascal Igbos in any piece of Northern Nigeria" will be made.

He additionally communicated his fulfillment on how the nation's pioneers completely censured the demonstration.

He asked social pioneers, security organizations and other government agents to all have their influence in directing the adolescents to settle their disparities agreeably.

This can only be achieved in an atmosphere of the rule of law and peace where all citizens live happily irrespective of their ethnic or religious backgrounds.

I commend the Federal and State Governments, youth and civil society leaders, security agencies, cultural and religious leaders for their efforts to promote peace in the country.

I am also heartened by the reactions of leaders from all over the country condemning this ultimatum.
