June 9, 2017 – Northern Youths Group Leaders Insist The Igbos Must Go, Urge FG To Step In

Northern youth groups  leaders that issued a three months ultimatum to Igbo yesterday called for the conduct of a referendum by the Federal government to enable Nigerians take a decision on whether the Igbo should be allowed to secede as being requested by separatist groups.

The group spoke from hiding following Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s call for its members’ arrest.

In the statement, the group lambasted the Chairman of the Northern States Governors Forum, Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima and El-Rufai for condemning their controversial statement and ordering the arrest of its signatories.

Yesterday’s statement signed by Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, who signed the earlier statement, urged the Federal Government to urgently initiate the process for a peaceful referendum to allow the Igbo to go.

The group however denied calling for violence in its initial quit notice.

The statement said:

“At the end, we came up with a position paper which we presented as the Kaduna Declaration in which we primarily called on the authorities and the international community to step in to formerlise the actualisation of the dream of a people who say in words and in action, and the whole nation appears to concur, that they are Biafrans, not Nigerians.

“We further urged those Biafran nationales to relocate from the North to their newfound country in order to allow other people have peace. We are today compelled to make this further statement to clarify our stand on some issues that trailed the Kaduna Declaration made on Tuesday June 6, 2017.

“After meeting to review the fallout of that Tuesday’s Declaration, our groups have noted hat some elements have for reasons best known to them, mischievously distorted the intent of our original script by alluding such words as ‘violence, ‘ ‘threat, ‘ ‘war’ and ‘mass action’ to it.

“We find this mischievous because as cultured thoroughbred Northerners we have never anywhere and at anytime, under whatever circumstances, called anybody to violence as a means of conflict resolution.

“In strict observance of that tradition we never employ violence as a means of pursuing our interest and, at every opportunity, we opt for peaceful engagements and implore people to eschew violence in all its ramifications.

“This informs why, a majority of discerning Nigerians, not necessarily northerners alone, understood and identified with our express call for the Biafrans to be allowed to actualise their long-held secessionist aspiration.

“We restate that we have never called anybody to violence and that people should discountenance the elements of fear and threat introduced by the distortions of merchants of mischief. We wholeheartedly endorse the moves made variously by our leaders to allay those fears and urge people to be peaceful and law-abiding while at the same time resolutely insisting on having the right thing done by allowing the Igbo to have and move to their dream country in accordance with the universal fundamental right to self-determination.

“We restate our determination and commitment to ensuring that the North will never partake in any contrived arrangement that would still have the Biafran Igbo as a component. We reiterate our call on Nigerian authorities and recognized international bodies such as the ECOWAS, AU and UN to hasten the initiation of the process for the final actualization of the Biafran nation and with it the excision of the Igbos out of the present federation”.

  1. IF KADUNA DECLARATION MUST STAND WITH YEYE ALMAJIRI RANTS, WHY WONT BIAFRAN DECLARATION GO AHEAD..AS THE LORD SAID PHAROAH ,LET MY PEOPLE GO..THE IGBOS SHOULD BE LIBERATED..ENOUGH OF THAT KILLING AND LET THAT REGION BE.

  2. This hausa fulani people forget that the agitation of biafra is not only the igbo tribe , we the ibibio , efik , ijaws were fighting for the same purpose about biafra nation, they should research the map of biafra so that they will not be misleading . Biafra is a must , there is no going back , they are even helping us to achieve our new biafra through there uncivilized manner and statement . All hail biafra the rising sun from the eastern region …

  3. Pls point of correction is not arewa youth pls is Muslim youth bcos there also Christians in arewa

  4. Hausa dosent know the meaning of independent, Biafran want to have power to make decisions, it doesn’t mean sending Hausa or other tribe back to there state, but if that what Hausa wants that’s OK,Ndigbo in not start selling your properties and relocate, but shame to we Igbos that have property in another man’s land,that’s what Hausa want to use against them, how many Hausa or Yoruba have property in Igbland, once again shame to we Igbos that have property in another man land, is time to move out from some part of North, there level of education is low.go home and invest, pharaoh has decided to let us go, is time to go now through the red see to the promise land

  5. The most stupid Feature of the animal called human is that he forgets history easily. History is about to repeat itself in Nigeria. I always have the thought that Nigeria will break up and the Igbos have never learnt to invest more in their own land and not abandoning their home to others lands. Theoritically and constitutionally any Nigerian can live and invest anywhere in Nigeria but Nigeria does not work that way. If Nigeria has Problem, Igbos in Yoruba und Hausa lands will suffer. I pray this time that every tribe who wants to be on its own can do so. Peaceful seperation is what we need. Even if it means each state emerging as a Nation, let it be. So was it in the former Soviet Union and Yugoslavia. Nigeria is a failed british Experiment.

  6. Off what importance is the north to Nigeria. it is high time we the people of Middle Belt and Benue to be precise to start distinguishing our self from the north. Only ignorant Hausa/ fulani can make this kind of inflammable statement.

  7. THE NORTHERN LAZY bones called the AYC are nothing but greedy, lazy fools who are mainly targeting the Igbos investments in the north.

    Otherwise, what‘s this sudden decision all about? Another question that‘s quickly begging for answers is…. With all the fake orders of arrest by the Kaduna gov. El-rufai on all those behind this eviction order causing this pandemonium all over, How many arrest have been made so far? Can the govt really protect the Igbos when things gets out of hands?

    I take a stroll…

  8. Please if you are one of the people boldly yapping your dog mouth for others to leave your region or for new Biafra, please while you are are it pack your things from the Southwest too. Tell your family and extended family to leave Lagos, Ibadan etc. Because you will be a hypocritical fool if u live in Lagos and you are shouting Biafra. Get your xenophobic azz out of Lagos. How many south westerners are successful in Aba? Will igbos let then thrive? NO. But that is a discussion for another day.

    The solution is not division. It is UNITY against the big men of Nigeria.If each tribe manhandles the thief amongst them so called politicians, instead of hailing and encouraging them and giving them chieftancy titles for stealing, then Nigeria will progress. One of the most corrupt countries in the world and we cannot count half a dozen people in jail for corruption.

    A country where kidnappers are treated harsher than political thieves and thugs when it is public looting by politicians that gave rise to unemployed kidnappers. Until the hammer comes down on politician, no peace in Nigeria.

    Imagine Senator collecting almost 4x salary of US president, then also collection so called Pension being an ex governor (full governor salary). Please define pension. Innocent people will die,the thieves will send their families abroad while the country burns. Please go after the thieves in Agbada,in Senate,Governors,Reps,Local Govt. chairmen,Party heads. These are the problem and that should be aggressively confronted not separation.
