No Powerful Northerner Is Sponsoring Our Quit Notice To Igbo – Group

Spokesman for the Coalition of Northern Groups, Abdulazeez Suleiman, yesterday said that the youths group which asked Igbos to the quit northern Nigeria in three months was not being sponsored by powerful northerners as being alleged.

Suleiman, from an undisclosed location, told Daily Trust on phone that, “That we are being supported by some powerful people is not true. It will be funny if I would have to wait for someone to tell me what to do, regarding my destiny and that of my people. As a matter of fact, those who think they are the ‘big boys’ of the north El-Rufai and Shettima are the ones fighting us, while those who support and understand us are the neglected poor,” he said.

Suleiman said despite the arrest order by Governors El-Rufai of Kaduna and Shettima of Borno, none of the leaders of the 16 groups in the coalition had been arrested so far.

“The coalition is made up of more than 16 different groups. It will be difficult to ascertain that unless the authorities say it. What is important here is whether or not the governors’ powers extend to ordering the arrest of people in all the states of northern Nigeria,” he said.
