In another development, leader of Coalition of Northern Group (CNG) that issued the quit notice, Shettima Yerima has explained yesterday in Lafia, during the zonal meeting of the Coalition in Nasarawa, that after deliberation on the quit notice and discussions with prominent Igbo leaders and organizations like Ohaneze which have dissociated themselves from IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu’s activities, they had to shift ground.
He explained that the quit notice was a signal to Kanu and his group that Nigeria cannot be undermined by a single individual and described him as a frustrated human being who is seeking political relevance.
Yerima who led other groups in the North to the annual meeting said that after due consultations, they have decided to relax the notice and watch events, adding that his group will soon take a stand on the October 1st deadline.
He describes Northerners as intelligent people against the notion that Northerners are illiterate and advised youths to shun violence and thuggery and concentrate on taking their destiny into their hands.
He appreciated northern leaders like the Sultan of Sokoto and the Borno State governor for their intervention on the quit notice, noting that the Coalition is out to ensure that Nigerian remains united and not divided.
