“We Are Disappointed In Buhari” – Arewa Youths React To Buhari’s Lazy Nigerian Youths Comment |RN

“We Are Disappointed” – Arewa Youths React To Buhari’s Lazy Nigerian Youths Statement.

 

Arewa Youths React To Buhari's Lazy Nigerian Youths Statement

Northern youths under the auspices of Arewa Youths Consultative Forum on Friday went hard on President Muhammadu Buhari over his recent remarks in London that a lot of young persons in the country prefer to sit without working, stressing that the criticism is an insult on all Nigerian youths.The Arewa youths, who spoke through their national president, Yerima Shettima, in an exclusive chat with MC EBISCO said they have heard Buhari’s remarks at the Commonwealth Business Forum in London and are biding their time till 2019 to let the President know whether they are actually jobless and lazy.

Recall that presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina had accused mischievous persons of twisting the comment by his principal, who he quoted as saying, “a lot of them (young Nigerians) have not been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria has been an oil producing country, therefore they should sit and do nothing and get housing, healthcare and education free”.

But reacting, Yerima stated that Adesina’s attempt at clarification does not make any difference, adding that since Buhari’s comment became public knowledge, he has been getting calls from youths across the north, expressing anger over the comment from the Nigerian leader.

He said it was bad enough that the president spoke in an international event where other nationalities were present, stressing that it was regrettable that the President would speak so of younger Nigerians who put their lives on the line to install the Buhari government.

“From the moment that statement was out, there have been a lot of complaints and grumbles from various people from my place, and they kept calling. The complaints were too much that I was compelled to issue a statement.

“Ordinarily, I wouldn’t have said anything because I am not surprised to see that kind of statement because the government does not believe in the Nigerian youths from inception.

“If you look at the arrangement, the appointment, and how the government relates with the youths of this country, you will see that they do not have respect for the Nigerian youths despite the contributions of the youths. Don’t forget that the youths put their lives on the line to fight against the previous government but when it comes to sharing the goodies of government, the youths are nowhere to be found.

“We are completely disappointed in Buhari and we will never make this mistake again,” Yerima said.   (Akahi News)

Call For Break-Up: Northern Elders, Arewa Youths, ACF, Disown Ango Abdullahi

 

Prof.-Ango-Abdullahi

Prof/ Ango Abdullahi

The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), leader of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Dr Paul Unongo, and the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum are not on the same page with Northern Elders Forum (NEF) chieftain, Professor Ango Abdullahi, on his position that Nigerians should “go our separate ways.”
The former vice chancellor of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, has also come under attack from the youth wing of Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, which called his view “very, very unfortunate and unexpected from a man of his calibre.”
Abdullahi, speaking on Wednesday at a public debate in Kaduna had said the best option for the country was a return to 1914 or 1960 or what he called “let us go our separate ways.”
“If on the other hand we give credit to the British and our founding fathers (and they deserve credit), and we cannot contain restructuring based on what existed in 1914, we should go back to 1960 when the country operated regions. The north is not afraid of getting our north back,” he said at the forum “The North and the Future of Nigerian Federation”, organized by the Arewa Research and Development Project, in collaboration with Sir Ahmadu Bello Foundation; the Northern Elders Forum; Arewa Consultative Forum; Code Group; Northern Delegates Forum; Arewa Reawakening; Jamiyar Matan Arewa and Forum for Northern Youths Organizations.
Asked yesterday to respond to Abdullahi’s view, the ACF Secretary-General Mr Anthony Sani said Abdullahi was on his own on.
He said: “Prof Ango Abdullahi has the right to air his view, but he is on his own on this matter of public importance.
“As far as we are concerned, the certain benefits of a big and united one Nigeria are more than the uncertain gains of a split.
“It is, therefore, defeatist to allow our temporary challenges to redefine our cherished common destiny and set our collective agenda.
“Nigerians must know that in the mechanism of community living, victory and defeat are never final. Our current challenges are not beyond redemption.”
Dr Unongo who heads the NEF of which Abdullahi is a prominent member said that the 1914 amalgamation of Nigeria by Lord Frederick Lugard was not a mistake.
The Second Republic Minister of Steel Development said by phone that though he supports devolution of power to the states, he is totally against any move to break up Nigeria.
His words: “Professor Ango Abdullahi has spoken for himself and he has a right to do so. But, going our separate ways is not the best for this country.
“That we have challenges does not mean that we have not done well in so many other areas.
“Nigeria has done very well as a nation-state. The amalgamation of Nigeria by Lord Lugard is not a mistake because we have come this far as a united country. But, the agitation by the youths and other groups is that we ought to have done better, which the truth.
“Mind you, this situation is like the car we use.There are times we need to change worn-out nuts and others like that. So, the most sensible way of addressing this situation is to address our challenges as a nation.
“So, we should not split this country. Yes, I support devolution of certain power to the states. Let them be given power and resources to develop the states and same to the local governments.
“What I will not support is allowing state police. States should not be allowed to form their own army because states will go to war against each other.”
The national president of the AYCF, Comrade Shettimma Yerima, said the disintegration of the country would do no good to Nigerians and would amount to suicide.
He said: “We respect Professor Ango Abdullahi and he might have his reasons for saying this.
“That is his own opinion and that how he sees it.
“ He saw yesterday but for us who are for today, we really don’t want to reflect on the past because it’s nothing to write home about. We are looking for how we can build a nation, how we can work together to make Nigeria stronger.
“I don’t agree with him that Nigeria should disintegrate. We have more to lose now if the country disintegrates.
“I am of the view that whatever the grudges are, we must know that all hope is not lost. The present generation (of Northerners) strongly believe that we can work together with our brothers from other parts of the country to build a nation where there will be no suspicion, where there will be equity and fairness to all.
“That is what we are looking up to. We are working towards building a nation where all of us will begin to see ourselves as Nigerians.
“This is why the Arewa youths, the Ohanaeze youths and others across the country and working together to make sure peace reigns and that we have a virile nation. Disintegration will amount to total suicide.”
The youth wing of Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, also does not share Abdullahi’s view.
In a chat with our correspondent, the President of the OYC, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said the statement by Abdullahi was unfortunate.
He said:”As a youth group, we have been working with the Arewa youths and other youth groups in the country to promote peace and cordial relationship among our people.
“Why should Professor Abdullahi now be making such statement that is capable of heating up the polity again and causing needless confusion. We stand for a united Nigeria where equity, fairness and justice shall reign.”
Niger Delta leaders who were also contacted insisted on a fair, just and equitable country as opposed to the break-up canvassed by Prof Abdullahi.
The National Coordinator, Pan Niger Delta Peoples Congress (PNDPC), Chief Mike Loyibo, said though the Southsouth was not afraid of a breakup, the people had unanimously agreed that Nigeria would be better as one entity.
He said the zone would continue to advocate a restructured Nigeria where states would be allowed to control their resources and pay a certain amount of taxes to the Federal Government.
He said they were tired of the current lopsided arrangement where the region which feeds the country, remained marginalized in key security and oil and gas positions.
He said: “Our problem is that of injustice. The constitution itself is defective and we have been long marginalized.
“What we are simply saying is give us true federalism where all the regions are allowed to develop at their own pace. Allow us to control and manage our resources and we pay certain taxes to the government.
“Nobody is afraid of a breakup, after all, Nigeria is a forced marriage.
“ Our position as Niger Delta leaders is that there should be restructuring. We want a structure that will address the injustice we have.
“ I don’t support breakup but I support one Nigeria where there will be justice, equity and every side will be allowed to develop at their own pace.
“ Ango Abdullahi is entitled to his opinion. The other day he said it was not resource control but resource management”
Also speaking, a former President of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide, Mr Udens Eradiri, said Nigeria would be stronger as a united country.
He said the country urgently needed restructuring to ensure equity and justice adding that devolution of power will enable states to develop at their pace.
He said: “I think Nigeria is stronger as one nation where equity and justice will prevail. It is not difficult to get justice and equity. It is just that leadership is not serious.
“Somebody said something that the mineral resources offshore should belong to the Federal Government while the ones onshore should belong to the state. That could also be the starting point. But the important point is that equity and justice demand that the state must get what belongs to it.
“In any case, Nigeria is failing. States can no longer pay salaries. The federal government is taking 87 percent of the resources after giving 13 percent to states, but cannot sustain infrastructures. Roads are nothing to write home about even in APC states.
“It is not about supporting an administration, it is a system that has failed and that cannot be sustained. It is only common sense that when you are doing something for many years and it is not working, you ought to do it differently.
“ The most important part is that there is a failure of leadership. If we have had clear-headed leadership, we won’t be where we are today.
“Even when we will be restructuring and devolving power, the people must take control of the electoral process. That is the only way you can guarantee responsible leadership. As we are today, it is not working.”     (The Nation)

IPOB Should Be Grateful To Orji Kalu, Says Shettima Yerima |The Republican News

 

Shettima-Yerima-1

Arewa Youths Consultative Forum l-Leader, Shettima Yerima

 

The leader of Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF), Shettima Yerima, has described the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), as ingrates, who lack the sense to come to terms with reality.

Yerima said this against the backdrop of comments of IPOB members against the former governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu. 

In response to questions from newsmen,  in Kaduna, yesterday, Yerima expressed surprise that IPOB spokesmen could “extend their traditional ways of insults to even someone like Orji Uzor Kalu.”

He said those who were not vocal, when their voices should have been loudest, are the true enemies of a society. Yerima disclosed that despite the former governor’s efforts in sustaining relative peace,  IPOB resorted to calling him names.

“A man who has frequently shuttled the North, to discuss the safety of his people, deserves more than appreciation.

“IPOB members couldn’t contain their pot of insults and decided to extensively extend it to even the ones sticking out their neck on their behalf.

“It simply shows how ungrateful they can be.”

Commenting on Kalu’s statement on Nnamdi Kanu’s whereabouts and counter-claims by IPOB, Yerima said: “I wonder the reason for such propaganda by IPOB.

“Even when they said  Kanu’s father was missing,  a doctor in the Federal Medical Centre confirmed he slumped and was brought to the facility for treatment. But, IPOB claimed they disappeared or the Nigerian Army arrested them.”

Yerima’s group formed the Coalition of Northern Youths (CNY) with 15 other groups and issued a statement on June 6, 2017, when it advised Igbo living in the North to leave the region on or before October 1, 2017.

They later rescinded the quit notice, last month.    (The Sun)

Quit Notice: Kaduna Gov’t Gets Bench Warrant To Arrest Arewa Youths |RN

                      Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufa’i

Godwin Isenyo, Kaduna

The Kaduna State Government on Thursday said it had obtained a bench warrant from the court to arrest members of the Coalition of Northern Youths who gave October 1, 2017, as a deadline for Ndigbo in the North to quit or be forced out of the region.

This was despite the withdrawal of the quit notice by the group.

A coalition of northern groups, including the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum led Shettima Yerima, had in July given all the Igbo resident in the 19 states of the North a three-month ultimatum to quit or be forced out after the expiration of the October 1, 2017, deadline.

They also asked all northerners resident in the South-East to get prepared and return to the North.

The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai had earlier ordered the arrest of the principal actors who signed the ‘Kaduna declaration.’

The declaration was signed by Nastura Ashir Sharif (Arewa Citizens Action for Change); Ambassador Shettima Yerima (Arewa  Youth Consultative Forum); Aminu Adam (Arewa Youth  Development Foundation); Alfred Solomon (Arewa Students Forum); and Abdul-Azeez Suleiman (Northern Emancipation  Network) as well as JoshuaViashman (Northern Youth Vanguard).

However, on Thursday, the state government obtained a bench warrant from the court to arrest those that issued the quit notice ultimatum.

Addressing a press conference at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House, Kaduna, the state capital, El-Rufai’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Samuel Aruwan, however, assured residents including the Igbo, that they had nothing to fear.

He said the assurance was given by the Kaduna State Government which commended all residents and communities in the state for their contributions to peace and harmony.

The government, he added, informed residents that law enforcement and security agencies were taking necessary actions to prevent any threat to peace.

Aruwan said the state government was steadfast about enforcing the law and in keeping the peace, disclosing that the government had taken further actions in relation to those persons that were threatening the liberty of other citizens.

“The government has obtained a bench warrant for their arrest, after filing a formal criminal complaint,” he said.

Aruwan added, “The Kaduna State Government notes, with commendation, the efforts of the residents of our diverse state to uphold peace in their communities. The government and the security agencies are working to prevent any threat to this cherished harmony. Vigorous security patrols will continue as part of concrete actions to reassure residents and demonstrate that bad behaviour is unwelcome and will not be tolerated.

“When some elements barged into our state capital to deliver an illegal ultimatum to a section of our community, the government condemned it and ordered the arrest of those concerned. The Kaduna State Government followed up with a formal criminal complaint to the police and has obtained a bench warrant against them. Therefore, anybody that sights them or is aware of their location should proudly discharge the civic duty of informing the police.

“The criminal complaint specifies the sections of the recently updated Penal Code Law of Kaduna State, 2017 that were violated by those that issued the illegal ultimatum. These include inciting disturbance: Section 78; disturbing public peace: Section 77; injurious falsehood: Section 373; unlawful assembly: Section 66; and criminal conspiracy: Section 59

“The formal criminal complaint and the bench warrant secured on the 8th August 2017 provide a basis to investigate, apprehend and ultimately prosecute the suspects.”  (Punch)

Nnamdi Kanu Plans Escape Through Cameroon Border, Arewa Youths Claim |RN

IPOB-Arewayouths

Arewa Youths, Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB members

The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum has alleged that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, who was said to have gone into hiding, is planning to flee Nigeria through the Cameroonian borders.
The organisation said intelligence reports at its disposal had revealed that the pro-Biafran activist was on his way to the Cameroon borders where he could easily escape from Nigeria.
Kanu and top leaders of IPOB were said to have gone into hiding following the declaration on Friday by the Nigerian Army that IPOB and other pro-Biafran groups were terrorist organisations.
The President of AYCF, Mallam Shettima Yerima, in an interview with The PUNCH on Sunday in Jos, said, “We are aware that he is scheming to find a way of escape through Cameroonian borders, which is easier for him to move and run back to where he belongs.
“He is on his way looking for how to run to Cameroon and that we are aware from our intelligence reports.”    (Punch)

Edwin Clark Berates Nnamdi Kanu Over Biafra, Condemns Arewa Quit Notice |RN

Edwin-Clark

Chief Edwin Clark

Elder statesman Edwin Clark on Tuesday condemned the Biafran agitation led by Nnamdi Kanu.

He also condemned the notice to quit by the Arewa youth group to Igbo in the North, saying it was worrisome.

The News Agency of Nigeria reported that Clark made this known when the Chairman, Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debt, Senator Shehu Sani, paid him a courtesy visit in his Abuja residence on Monday.

He warned that secession or agitation was not the way to go on the restructuring of the country.

He said, “When Kanu talks about Biafra, he is talking nonsense. We do not want a second war. America fought their civil war for a long time and they are not thinking of a second one. Kanu should drop the agitation.

“At the same time, it is arrogant and foolish on the part of some northern youths to issue quit notice. You do not own the North. It is part of Nigeria and anybody can live there.

“The Igbo have been living in the North for over 100 years. I condemn all of them.”

The elder statesman, however, emphasised the need for restructuring for equity and balance in the country.

He explained that though the call for restructuring had been loud in recent times, the country had been undergoing restructuring.

“We have been living together since 1914 and from time to time, we have been changing the way of our lives. In 1947, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe said the Richard Constitution was obnoxious; that it was anti-people. In 1950, we had the Macpherson Constitution which created the three regions and in 1963, we had another constitution.

“During all these constitutions, the issue of the fiscal federation was very prominent. So, we have been restructuring this country and nobody talked about breaking up the country. The war between 1967 and 1970 was an unfortunate one.”

Clark said making necessary changes to allow for social justice was the way to go, urging the National  Assembly to re-visit the issue of devolution of power upon resumption from recess. This, he said, was one of the ways to properly restructure the country.

According to him, the vote against devolution of power by NASS is borne out of the fear that it will whittle down the power of the legislators.

He said, “We have reached a stage where states are not paying salaries and something has to be done to gear their minds to see what they can do in their own area to generate money. I am happy you believe in restructuring, which can be achieved within a short time but it may take up to 20 years if we do not agree among ourselves.

“So, once more I want to say that when you resume,  the issue of devolution of power should be re-visited so that the Federal Government will deal with foreign affairs,  prisons, customs and a few other things.”

On the call to return to regionalism, Clark said, “You cannot abolish the states now and say you want six regions. It is not going to be easy or possible now.

“I feel we should use the same states as federating units and the local governments should remain with the states.”

He called for the establishment of revenue mobilisation commission to deal with funds that move between states and local governments to sustain them.

Clark promised to convene a meeting of elder statesmen across the country to find a lasting solution to the problem of restructuring.

In his remarks, Sani said one of the reasons the devolution of power did not scale through in NASS was the fear that state governments might abuse their power.

He said, “The problem we have with the devolution of power is how to tackle some of the problems that come with it. For example, the present crop of governors might not be able to handle state police in a manner that people who disagree with them can be safe.

“Secondly, the manner in which elections are conducted by the state independent electoral commissions where the ruling party in a state wins all positions is worrisome.

“So, if we devolve the police, we have to allay the fears of people on the implications. Those who are championing some of these issues need to make clarifications.”

On derivation and resource control, the lawmaker said it was in the best interest of the country to stop thinking about oil because it was becoming non-attractive globally.

On the quit notice, Sani said: “it is embarrassing.”  (Punchng.com)

Re-arrest Nnamdi Kanu And Face Consequences, Militants Dare FG |RN

91e96-urhobo_militant

From: Tony John Port Harcourt

Niger Delta militants have warned the Federal Government of the dangers the country would face, if the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is re-arrested by security agents.

The militants also gave the government a two-week ultimatum to release two members of IPOB, Chidiebere Onwudiwe and Bright Chimezie, who had been in detention, threatening to commence attack after the expiration. 

The militants, consisting of members of Niger Delta People Democratic Front (NDPDF),  Concerned Militant Leaders (CML) and Rainbow Marabas (RM),  gave the warning yesterday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, after their crucial meeting.

Leaders of the groups identified as General Iyoyo Playboy (NDPDF), General Ben (CML) and General Billy Anaeja, warned that re-arrest of Kanu would cause spontaneous attacks in major states in the country.

The group further accused the Federal Government of playing politics with the lives of Nigerians, particularly people from South East and South-South geopolitical zones. A statement jointly issued by Iyoyo, Ben and Anaeja, through their tweet handle, flayed the Federal Government for exhibiting hatred on the regions and individuals that expressed dissatisfaction with the All Progressives Congress (APC) style of administration.

They stated: “Federal Government has shown, through its moves to re-arrest Nnamdi Kanu, that it does not value lives of Nigerians. The government wants to use the attempt to re-arrest the IPOB Leader to escalate the crisis in the country. “If the government is serious, it should go ahead to arrest and wait for the result. We will back IPOB and give the group support in any form, even without them expecting it.”

“We learnt that Federal Government has deployed more security to the South-South and South-East geo-political zones because of Nnamdi Kanu. We dare them to go ahead and execute”, they warned.

They wondered why the Federal Government had remained silent over the activities of Northern youths against the Igbo and killings by Fulani herdsmen.

“What has Federal Government done about arresting Arewa youths, who hate the Igbo people with passion? What has Federal Government done with the Fulani herdsmen? How many of them have been arrested? Why is it silent, but is worried about a non-violent IPOB?

“We are reiterating our stand that we, the Niger Delta agitators, will resist any attempt to re-arrest the IPOB leader. We will resist FG and face the consequences. We are not begging those ruling not to go ahead and execute their plot”, the militants stressed.        (The Sun)

Arewa Youths Reply UN, Say Igbo Must Quit Or Their Blood Will Soak Our Ground

UN-Arewa

Following the recent statement made by the United Nations (UN) for an adequate measure to be taken against Arewa youth that issued a quit notice to the Igbos living in the Northern part of Nigeria, the youths have blasted back.
The Arewa youths have replied back to the UN stating that they can never be arrested on any basis following the statement made by their youth leader, who speaks more on the call made by the UN to arrest them. In a statement he said, “the north is our land, we say or decide who stays or leaves, since the Igbo have been agitating for a nation called Biafra, we decided to help them get their nation quick, our arrest will only accelerate their killing in the Northern part of the country even in their land as well if time is not taken.
Yusuf Musa a member of the Arewa youth said that the blood of the Igbos will flow in the streets of northern Nigeria if any attempt is made to arrest their leader or anyone of them.
“We still insist that the Igbos will leave our Land or risk being killed as done in the 1967-1970 Biafra war, we don’t care what our leaders say in the media, leave our Land or we will soak their blood in our land, this time nothing will stop it not even the UN”, he said.

UN1
 
A United Nations delegation are set to storm Nigeria for talks with the FG following the intensified agitation for the sovereign State of Biafra spearheaded by Nnamdi Kanu’s IPOB, a UN correspondent reveals.
 
The correspondent who disclosed this said that “The 8 man delegates are compiling documents to present to Nigeria government to organise a referendum for the masses to decide for themselves if they still want to continue to co-exist in Nigeria”.
 
Recall that the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in their recent report Accused Northern Leaders of Endorsing Genocide Against Igbos, this was contained in a letter drafted to UN general secretary by the committee at the end of their 93rd session between July 31 and August 25, 2017.
 
The UN body ordered Nigeria “to exercise due diligence to halt, prevent and investigate acts of racist hate speech and incitement to hatred and violence against the Igbo people, in accordance with international human rights standards, with a view to bringing perpetrators to justice, punishing them adequately if convicted, and compensating victims.”
 
According to a source close to one of the cabals controlling Nigeria, Aso Rock has been panicking since they got the information and are trying very hard to monopolize the UN body and quench their move to conduct a referendum.

Join Us To Build One Nigeria, It Is Not Too Late, Arewa Youths Tell Nnamdi Kanu |RN

IPOB-Arewayouths

From left to right: Arewa Youths Coalition, IPOB members with leader Nnamdi Kanu

The Arewa Youths Coalition (AYC), which announced the withdrawal of the quit notice given the Igbo, on Thursday, has said that it would take the ‘siddon look’ posture in order to allow the Federal Government do the needful.
In an interview with the Saturday Tribune, the leader of the Arewa Youths Coalition, Yerima Shettima, reaffirmed that they have suspended the Igbo quit notice as a result of intervention from prominent Nigerians within and outside the country.
He stated that, ‘With the intervention of people like the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Saad Abubakar, chairman, Northern States Governors Forum and Governor of Borno State, Alh Kashim Shettima as well as the former Chief Security Officer to the former Head of State, General Sani Abacha, Major Al-Mustapha, and also appeals from the international community and other stakeholders, we now have to suspend the issue (Igbo quit notice).
In defending their action, Shettima maintained that the antecedents of the IPOB leader, Kanu were clearly misplaced and apron to violence.
According to him,”To compound the issue, nobody from the South East region appeared to condemn his action,
He added that “We announced the quit notice out of frustration. Now, we have also realised that two wrongs cannot make a right.”
According to him, the Arewa youths are now pleased with the outpour of condemnations coming from Igbo leaders as well as their governors.
Commenting on their next line of action, he stated that, ”even though we have not decided on the next line of action, but in the next couple of weeks and even months our body language would be ‘siddon look.
However, he was quick to advise the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to take advantage of the olive branch extended to him and review his position in the interest of the country.
‘What we expect from him is that he has a re-think. It is never too late for him to join hands with us in building a nation we would all be proud to call our own, “he said. (Tribune)
