Igbos has only three months to leave the Northern states - Northern Youths threatens


Prominent Northern youth organisations ob Tuesday held a meeting in
Kaduna where they asked Igbos residing in the region to leave on or
before October 1st this year. According to The Sun,
the youth organizations had their meeting tagged "Kaduna Declaration" in
at the Arewa House in Kaduna state Tuesday.

According to the youth groups, their order for the Igbos to vacate the
region is premised on the shut-down of major towns in south eastern part
of the country on May 30th by members of the Indigenous People of
Biafra (IPOB) and their sponsors.

Among the Northern youth groups present at the
meeting were members of the Arewa Citizens Action for Change, Arewa
Youth Consultative Forum, Arewa Youth Development Foundation, Arewa
Students Forum and Northern Emancipation Network on The Igbo Persistence
for Recession among others.

In a statement read out to journalists after the meeting, the
spokesperson of the groups, Abdulazeez Suleiman said, the region was
tired of the marriage between the Nortern and Southern region, hence the
need for restructuring as been proposed by some Nigerian leaders like
former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Sen. Shehu Sani and others.

“The persistence for the actualisation of Biafra by the unruly Igbo of
South-Eastern Nigeria has lately assumed another alarming twist which
involved the forceful lockdown of activities and denial of other
people’s right to free movement in the South-East by the rebel
Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its overt and covert sponsors.
This latest action and similar confrontational conducts which amount to a
brutal encroachment on the rights of those termed as non-indigenous
people residing and doing lawful businesses in those areas illegally
demarcated and defined as Biafra by the Igbo, are downright unacceptable
and shall no longer be tolerated”.

Speaking further, he said:

"The Igbo people of the South-East, without remorse for the carnage they
wrought on the nation in the 1960s, are today boldly reliving those
sinister intentions connoted by the Biafran agitation that led to the
very first bloody insurrection in Nigeria’s history. Emboldened by the
apparent indifference of the Nigerian authorities, the Igbo secessionist
tendency is widening in scope and action at every stage, with adverse
effects on the law-abiding people of other regions residing in or
passing through the East, while the Igbo leaders and elders by their
utterances and direct action or inaction appear to support and encourage

This is happening irrespective of the undisputable fact that, Igbos have
done and are doing more damage to our collective nationhood than any
other ethnic group; being responsible for the first violent interference
with democracy in Nigeria resulting in a prolonged counter-productive
chain of military dictatorship. It is on record that since the inception
of the current democratic dispensation, the Igbos have shown and
maintained open contempt and resentment for the collective decision
expressed by majority of Nigerians at various stages via generally
acceptable democratic processes. 

While these provocative acts of aggression persist and grow in dimension
with each new move, leaders of the North whose people are at the
receiving end of the threats, appear helplessly unperturbed. Without
pursuing a resolute action-plan, these northern leaders have adopted and
have been dragging its people into a pitifully pacifist position in
order to sustain an elusive national cohesion that has long been
ridiculed by the Igbos. From today, June 6, 2017, when this proclamation
is signed, the North, a critical player in the Nigerian project, hereby
declares that it will no longer be disposed to coexisting with the
Igbos and shall take definite steps to end the partnership by pulling
out of the current federal arrangement".
