Northern Youth Assembly Condermns Arewa Youth Decison On Igbos, Describes It As Threat To National Security

The Northern Youth Assembly Of Nigeria condemns in strong terms the move by the Arewa Youth group who gave ultimatum to Igbos to vacate the North. The Speaker of the Assembly Rt. Hon Obande Gideon in a statement issued described it a threat to national security, our sovereignty and unity as a nation and call on security agencies to clamp down on this elements who are desperately doing all they can to threaten our nationhood.
As a step towards building a bridge and promoting peaceful coexistence and confidence, the Northern youth Assembly of Nigeria (NYAN) have received nominations of individuals from the south eastern part of the nation to honour them as Matron and Patron of the youth group. This laudable initiative is aimed at promoting inter regional interactions and correcting the negative picture of intolerance painted by the Arewa Youth group.
The current Vice Chancellor of Micheal Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike in Abia state Prof Francis Otunta was ratified as the Patron of the Assembly following his records as a seasoned administrator and a committed educationist of repute. This nomination was to futher strengthen the inter-regional relationship and futher boost youth involvement in agriculture with the aim of establishing an agric based exchange programme between the North and the south east
