The Chairman of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote has reacted to the three months ultimatum given to Igbos by a coalition of northern youths.
Dangote stated said joblessness was the reason for the ultimatum.
Dangote said this 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 angry, but they cannot justify their action when they have decided not to work.
“They only issue senseless warning to keep themselves relevant.”
He then said the refinery would create thousands of jobs when completed.
