When asked about what should be done to solve the country's security issues, Yakasai who said that Boko Haram, Niger Delta Militants and IPOB are all insurgents stated that the government needs to create programmes to solve the problems of every sector including security.
The elder statesman maintained that in Nigeria of today, the area benefitting the most is the South-West and those calling for break-up are noise makers.
Yakasai concluded that breaking up Nigeria won't solve our problems as every region will resort to fighting one another.
"Breaking up Nigeria wont’ solve our problems. With my experience in this country, the moment you break up Nigeria, every region will resort to fighting one another. In the North, we don’t have one language. We have Hausa, Fulani, Kanuri, and so on. In the entire West, everybody is a Yoruba speaking tribe from Oduduwa. I knew when Chief Obafemi Awolowo and Chief S.L Akintola quarreled, leading to the infamous Operation We ti e in West then", he was quoted to have said.
