The adage that says, 'when two elephants fight it is the grass that suffers' has led a youth group, Nigerian Youths for Peace and Progress (NYPP), to call the presidency and all notable Nigerians intervene the on-going 'cold war' between Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Mr. Femi Otedola and Alhaji Sayyu Dantata.

Both the Secretary General,of the group Yusuf Olakunle and Co-Secretary, General Ibrahim Hassan, has warned that the deepening crisis is a dangerous signal for the Nigerian economy and youths who see both business tycoons as their business role models. The statement further noted that friendship, between the duo, before it went sour was a reference point and a model for youths across the country.

It noted that since the two former friends fell apart, the media exchange between them had been very sad. “These two people provide enormous employment opportunities to thousands of Nigerians across all ethnic barriers. They are the only two Nigerians to be rated in Forbes Magazine as rich and influential. They are amongst Nigeria’s best of the best and should be encouraged to pool resources together to advance the country’s common good."

The group called on Dangote and Otedola to look at the larger stake that they hold in the economy as it affects the ordinary people and come together in the interest of peace, saying “We implore them to rise above whatever divisive tendencies that may have given rise to this animosity and reconcile.?

For the youths of this country, we plead 'let peace reign' for us to achieve 'Vision 2020' and a New Nigeria.
