Quit notice on igbos: What Arewa youth leader said after meeting with Kalu

Shettima Yerima, ​chairman of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, ​AYCF, has assured that the N​orth is at peace with all Nigerians.
He said this after a meeting with former Abia State governor, Orji Kalu​, on Tuesday.
The meeting held at Kalu’s office in Abuja.

Yerima, who is also leader of the Coalition of Arewa Youths​​​ that asked Igbos to vacate the ​North​ before October 1, 2017​, said Kalu had shown a lot of concern and was worried that the unity of Nigeria was being threatened.
​He said:​ “We have had series of meetings with a lot of prominent Nigerians and we want the unity of Nigeria.
“We identify with Kalu because he believes in the unity of Nigeria, going by his antecedents; we have assured him of our commitment to one Nigeria and our meeting was fruitful.
“We strongly believe that Nigeria is one and it is for us.​ ​We held meeting with Northern governors and we promised to make a statement and this is part of the process.
“Be rest assured that there is no cause for alarm; we assure everybody who believes in Nigeria of their safety‎”​.
Yerima said that the coalition would engage in further consultations before taking a final position.​
Meanwhile, Orji Kalu has also spoken on the meeting.
