A committee that had been set up to review the quit notice given to Igbos in the North met on Monday, but nothing came out of the meeting, yet.
Leaders of the northern coalition groups and representatives of the Igbo resident in the North set up the committee to resolve agitations over the Kaduna Declaration.
According to a statement issued at the end of the meeting, the committee is extending its deliberations to 10 more days “to make way for wider consultations.”
The committee, made up of five Northern and South-Eastern representatives each, had been set up last week Friday to issue a roadmap towards addressing the quit notice.
It said on Monday that it needed more time to address the issue, thoroughly.
“In reference to the peace meeting held on the 4th August, 2017 by leaders of the coalition of northern groups and Igbo leaders in the 19 northern states and the FCT which resulted in the formation of a 10-man committee to find a solution to the quit notice issued, the committee sat and deliberated extensively and agreed that there is need for further consultations from both sides,” the statement read.
“Accordingly, the meeting adjourned to reconvene in the next ten days where a final resolution on issues will be achieved.”
