Speaking on Twitter ban, he said “there are important justifications for some of the clamours, especially when you look at the South-east and the level of perceived injustice overtime.“If I were to be cynical, I’d probably have said how are we sure that there would be election by 2023, let alone talking about elections.

“I believe there will be a country called Nigeria by 2023. I believe the clamour for disintegration or regional powers is political.

“Nigeria of today is quite different from the Nigeria of three years ago when the federal government was just concerned with Boko Haram in the North-east. The federal government is not only distracted with what is happening in the North-east and North-west of Nigeria, but currently faces huge challenges in the South-east as well as North-central. A lot has been happening in Benue state and of course South-west as well. But I believe the federal government is equal to the challenges that we are currently facing.”
