Northern youths to review stance on Igbo quit notice

Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF), a coalition of northern youth groups that gave Igbo resident in Northern Nigeria three months ultimatum to vacate the region, has said it is reviewing its stand on the notice. According to its coordinator, Yerima Shettima, the AYCF was prompted to review its stand considering the way South-east governors, the Igbo socio-political group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, and prominent people from the region had distanced themselves from the struggle for a Biafran nation and secessionist movement.

On what prompted the quit notice, Shettima said the silence of South-east governors on secessionist movements in the region, gave birth to the June notice. On the group’s official position on the review, Shettima said, “It’s not official yet, we have not resolved on the position of things, but I hope soon we will sit down and also review the situation and make our position very clear.”
