We deserve to be honoured | Arewa youth asking Igbos to quit the North say

Leader of the ‘Kaduna Declaration’, a coalition of Northern youth groups that gave Igbo an October 1 deadline to vacate the North, Yerima Shettima has said that the idea behind the quit notice is working perfectly.

According to him, the groups decided to come with the quit notice to make leaders in the Southeast disclose their position as agitation by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), led by Nnamdi Kanu increased.

He said right now, Igbo elders and youth leaders had maintained they believe in ‘One Nigeria’ which according to him, was the main purpose of the quit notice.

Shettima who spoke with Sun said, “To God be the glory you can see that after this madness of quit notice everybody sat up.

“For the first time, we saw the governors being compelled to come forward to say look we are not part of Biafra, we do not believe in Biafra.

“That is a plus to Nigeria. On the issue of organization, such as Ohaneze, the Ohaneze Youth Council met with us three days ago and told us they don’t believe in the Biafra struggle.

“‘We are Nigerians and we believe in a country called Nigeria and we want to be part of it but we are thinking of restructuring.

“That is a plus to Nigeria. To me ordinarily we would have been honoured for what we did. It should have been celebrated as a nation that there is that awakening of consciousness in our country.

“The government on their part sat up under the leadership of the Acting President. You could see meetings going on to save the country. We want the country to remain together and on that note we will be making adjustment.

“Based on the meeting of the south east governors, jointly with Ohaneze and other organizations, even before the Ohaneze Youth Council met us, I said we will review our position on the quit notice and we are working on that.”
