Acting President, YEMI OSINBAJO has again warned those who have been engaging in hate speeches across ethnic lines in all parts of the country to always take into consideration that wars sometimes start with words and not necessarily with bullets.
He handed down the warning in his opening remarks at a meeting he had with leaders of thought from the South-East at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
After reading his opening remarks the meeting went into a closed session.
The meeting was in continuation of his consultations over the recent quit notice handed down to people of Igbo extraction to leave the North by northern youth groups.
Ebonyi state Governor, DAVID UMAHI who spoke with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting said the parley had raised hope for a more united nation.
Some of those present at the meeting were the Senate President, BUKOLA SARAKI; Speaker of the House of Representatives, YAKUBU DOGARA, and some state governors from the South-East.
