The Arewa People under the aegis of
Northern Coalition Groups, have on Sunday night, raised an alarm over
the alleged mobilisation of the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of
Biafra, IPOB, to humiliate President Muhamamdu Buhari, in United States
of America, US.
Recall, that Buhari who left for the US today to address the United Nations, UN, General Assembly, has already arrived.
In the mail signed by the Spokesman for
the CNG, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, the Northern Leaders said that the action
was also intended to further provoke the Northerners and incite the
world against Buhari.
“We must state here that our position
that IPOB be proscribed, its activities be declared as acts of terror,
and its leaders be accordingly treated, in the interest of a greater,
peaceful, and united Nigeria, has to a large extent been vindicated;
which is also reassuring and encouraging.
“We also wish to state that we have
privileged information that IPOB sponsors are mobilizing their members
in the Diaspora to humiliate our dear President Muhammadu Buhari, in New
York, where he is billed to address the United Nations General
“We call on Nigerians to as well
overlook this planned unpatriotic action by the IPOB supporters, as it
is nothing but another antic to provoke reactions.
“We assure all peace-loving Nigerians,
that CNG is also preparing to counter-IPOB’ foreign propaganda efforts,
by compiling relevant facts to be presented personally to the UN soon.
“Finally, we reiterate the call for calm and tolerance, as the authorities diligently carry out their duties.”
