After a meeting with Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, the Arewa Youths Coalition has agreed to withdraw the October 1 quit notice handed Igbo in the North to leave.
Arewa Youth Coalition spokesman Abdulaziz Suleiman said that consultations were ongoing among members with a view to withdrawing the quit notice.
Suleiman ascribed the decision to withdraw the quit notice to what he described as “positive developments” that came out of the meeting with Shettima and persuasions from the Northern Governors Forum.
He added that the actual date for the withdrawal of the notice would be communicated later.
He added: “What we can say is that there has been a major development. Now the chairman of the Governors’ Forum has taken the initiative and invited us to start negotiations. This is the first time we are meeting publicly with any leader and we believe that it is a major step forward in our ongoing consultations.
“We hold the governor in high esteem and we have the unity of the country at heart”.
Suleiman said: “You see, I wonder why you talk about quit notice. We only issued a Kaduna declaration, quit notice is just a part of it. Let us do the recounting of the successes of our declarations first. We are sill going on with our consultations”.
Shettima said his discussion with the group was fruitful and that members of the executive of the coalition demonstrated a lot of courtesy and respect during the meeting.
The governor said he was able to impress it on the youths to appreciate the enormity of the challenges facing the country and how the quit notice they issued had compounded the situation.
Shettima, who is the chairman of the Northern Governors Forum, added that the governors have also been in discrete consultations with the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa ‘ad Abubakar on this and other issues.
