He made this known to Igbo people while speaking as the Guest Lecturer at the combined 9/10th anniversary of Zik Lecture Series held at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State.

Below were two strong point Governor Fayemi passed across to Biafra agitators on why they should be working on Nigeria's unity instead of separation.

1. He said a well-structured dialogue remained a major pathway to peace and progress, adding that there is nothing heroic in dying for a cause that dialogue and negotiations can help resolve.

He made it known to the public that succession groups should come up with conferences, town hall meetings with different stakeholders in the country to come up with resolutions to their problems instead of causing violence that could lead to the death of people in the region.

2. He admonished Nigerians to bury their differences in order to achieve a greater and fulfilled country.

Governor Fayemi urged Nigerians to learn how to manage their differences in religion and ethnicity in order to live peacefully as one for the country to achieve greater things.
