Alhaji Aliko Dangote, the Chairman of Dangote Group has reacted to the quit notice issued to Igbos by a coalition of northern youths.
Arewa groups had asked South-easterners residing in the north to vacate before the 1st of October, 2017.
Emphasising on the issue which has drawn condemnation from many groups and individuals, the billionaire said joblessness was the reason for the Immigration.
The Billionaire 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.
Dangote was quoted by The Nation, saying:
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,
Dangote assured that his refinery project, when completed and put in place, would create thousands of direct jobs for the youths and millions of indirect jobs in the value chain.
