Allow Biafra, Oduduwa, Others Referendum - Arewa Youths Beg Buhari by Kazim88: 9:17am On Aug 23, 2017
The Arewa Youth Coalition has flayed the comment made by President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigeria must remain one.

The group urged the government to conduct a referendum to provide an exit door for those who did not want to be part of Nigeria.

Buhari had in a nationwide broadcast on Monday upon his return from London affirmed that the country was better off staying together.

But rising from a town hall meeting for the North East geopolitical zone, yesterday, the coalition disagreed with him on the non-negotiability of the unity of the country.

National Chairman of the coalition, Alhaji Yerima Shettima told newsmen in Gombe, yesterday, that Nigeria should create an exit door for the Biafra agitators by convening a referendum.

“The president just came back from his medical vocation. In normal circumstances, one should have expected him to take some time to have a clear review of situations in the country after spending 103 days abroad.

“His statement is a welcome development to some extent because there are issues; the unity of the country is being threatened. I think the focus of the president was basically on the threat to our national unity and those were the key issues he spoke about. In addition, that we would no longer tolerate anybody undermining the security of the country. Certainly, agreed, it should be that way as he felt. But I feel also that on the side of international law to which Nigeria is signatory, it is expected that government must create an exit door for those who feel they want to leave through a referendum and as stipulated in the 1999 constitution.

“It would not augur well if we insist on living with people who do not want to be part of the country and they keep threatening the unity of the country. It may even appear to the international community like a mockery.

“If the government is up and doing, let us abide by the demands of the international law by creating an exit door for those agitating for self determination,” Shettima said.

“Certainly, the IPOB cannot be said to be speaking for the South-East because they are less than ten percent of the Igbo communities who are willing to remain in Nigeria,” he said.

Shedding light on the October 1 quit notice issued to Igbo, Shettima lamented that the group’s message in the Kaduna Declaration was misunderstood.

The Northern youths are beginning to reason. It is very good that the youths of today do not want to repeat their father's mistakes. You dont have to blame Buhari. He is an old man and was one of those men that "fought for Nigeria Unity" 50 years ago. Yet, nothing to show for it. The truth is that Nigeria has never been united and will never be. Since we have 3 majority ethnic groups in Nigeria, then let Nigeria split into three.
North for Arewa
West for Oodua
East for Biafra.
This is the easiest way to split Nigeria. We can become good neighbors.

Dude, the only unity beggars that have publicly rejected Biafra are your own Aboki-Igbo kinsmen in the North since the ultimatum, like the ones attached below.

Nwanne, Ogadimma. They cant eat their cake and have it. We love them and tried to make them reason with us to make Nigeria the better place like it ought to be. But they chose to always make the north rule since they support that side.

I dont blame them tho, Its never easy to convince a monkey that strawberry is sweeter than banana.

Allow? how? is buhari an emperor or King to allow or disallow referendum? what kinda illiterates do we have in our social media space?
The constitution made no provision for any damn referendum, buhari only swore an oath to protect and defend the constitution as it is, buhari is not your problem your constitution is;
Kanu may not have read the constitution in details before starting his London madness, is it our fault that he is ignorant of the workings of the republic? Why should a tout have an opinion on our national unity when he has no clue how it operates?

Honestly it's a good thing.

I believe if Arewa youths are sincere about this their move (and the one of lobbying their senators for referendum) ... all these Insult and bad blood between north and south would end.

I noticed something about this Biafran guys, even if their elder talk against biafra they finish you but once you are on referendum they hail You and revere you.


Infact If Yerima Shettima can give them referendum Nnamdi Kanu would apologies to the North openly.
