Exclusive: Arewa Youths Coalition to vacate October 1 quit order morrow
By RAZAQ BAMIDELE
Ten days to the expiration of the quit order handed down to the South-Easterners by a coalition of northern youth under the leadership of Mallam Yerima Usman Shettima, there are strong indications that the quit order is likely to be vacated tomorrow, Thursday, August 24.
A source close to the triangular consultative meeting held in three major towns within the three northern zones confided in THE PARROTERS that it was agreed upon to lift the ban on the Igbos residing in the northern area of the country.
The three towns that hosted the consultative meetings were Kano in the north-west, Gombe in the north-east and Nasarawa in the north-central.
The PARROTERS gathered authoritatively that the final meeting, where the quit order would be vacated would be held tomorrow likely in Abuja.
The three consultative meetings preceded the one held with the presidency yesterday Tuesday where the presidency was represented by the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matter, Senator Babafemi Ojudu in his office.
Recall that, since the Arewa youths’ declaration recently, the tension that has enveloped the country was so thick it could be cut with a knife. The youths have said it several times that the sack order was in response to continued agitation by the IPOB that was clamouring for secession from the country.
Though there have been divergent opinions on the action which the northern youths asserted was taken out of genuine patriotism towards nation building.
The coalition leader, Yettima was said to have expressed his group’s avowed commitment to uphold President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration’s gains and disallow any divisive tendencies that could undermine the gains from any quarters including the IPOB agitators.
Also present at most of the meetings beside Yerima were Nastura Shariff of the Arewa Citizens Action for Change; Aminu Adam of Arewa Youth Development Foundation; Samaila Musa of Nothern Youth Frontiers; Mohammed Mohammed, leader of the Northern Youth Stakeholders Forum and Arewa Citizen Action for Change’s Jamil Bello.
Others were said to includeed the leader of the Arewa Students Forum, Jamil Charanchi; Northern Emancipation Network leader, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman; Yusuf Amoke of the Northern Anti-corruption Front; Idoko Onoja, leader of the Middle Belt Youth Coalition Network and Mohammed Abdul-Hamid of North Central Youth Congress.
