Aliko Dangote, the Chairman of the Dangote Group, has lambasted the coalition of the northern youth group for issuing an exit ultimatum to Igbos living in the region to relocate to the southeast before October 1st.
According to The Nation, the billionaire said joblessness was the reason for the ultimatum.
Dangote made this known when a team of business executives from Lagos Business School (LBS), visited his multi-billion dollars refinery and petrochemical projects in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos.
”Some guys who have no relevance and values came out to issue a warning that Igbo should leave the North.
”I am surprised everybody started talking about this nonsense. Why are we talking about it?
”Obviously, in a place where there is a lot of joblessness, it is expected that this kind of jobless people would come out with all sorts of anger.
”We understand the reasons why they are angry, but they cannot justify their action when they have decided not to work.
”They only issue senseless warning to keep themselves relevant,” he said.
Dangote assured that his refinery project when completed, would create thousands of direct jobs for the youths and millions of indirect jobs in the value chain.
