The Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir has urged those calling for secession to shelve the idea.
He stated that Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo and other tribes are brothers.
Kabir said this when the Pro-Chancellor of University of Ilorin, Abdullah Oyekan paid him a visit at his palace in Katsina.
This was contained in the institution’s weekly publication released on Wednesday.
The traditional ruler, who is the Chancellor of the institution also harped on the need for Nigeria to remain united, noted that although the situation of the country was serious, break-up wasn’t the solution.
Kabir noted that the renewed agitation was caused by “agents of disunity, especially those who do not want the present administration to succeed.”
Speaking further, the traditional ruler said, “This country must remain one indivisible sovereignty that it has been since time immemorial.
“Igbos, Yorubas, Hausas and other tribes in the country – we are all brothers and sisters and we must be wary of these unscrupulous people.”
