An umbrella body of the Northern youths, North East Unity Forum (NEUF) has warned Nnamdi Kanu and his cohorts against inflammatory statements against Northerners and their leaders, expressing their support to the agitation of Patriotic Coalition of Northern groups.
The Chairman of the Forum Comrade Alkassim Nuhu Abdulkadir stated this yesterday while addressing press conference at late Sir Abubakar Tafawa Tomb Bauchi.
The Forum reaffirmed its unflinching support for the patriotic coalition of Northern groups and advice Nnamdi Kanu and his rowdy crowd to desist from making further inflammatory statements against Northerners.
”Unruly crowd in the south eastern part of this country led by Nnamdi Kanu had for quite long disturbed the peace of the nation with the greater concentration on northerners whom they call baboons in zoo and other derogatory names which we are not ready to tolerate any longer”. The youth fumes.
The Forum’s Chairman said, “That is why we feel duty bound to break the silence on the unhealthy development introduced in to the country by some self seeking unpatriotic elements who preach hates, incitement and violence in the name of agitation for an independent Biafaran nation”.
He stated that the Northeast Unity Forum confronted Dr Usman Bugaje hostility towards the Patriotic Coalition, Abdulkadir said “more pronounced in its hostility to the patriotic Northern Coalition is the contraption fronted by certain Usman Bugaje, which persisted in muscling the coalition in to partisanship in favour of presidential aspiration of a north east politician with an open preference for the Igbo at the expense of Northern interest”.
Nuhu Abdulkadir stressed that the Forum see Dr Usman Bugaje moves through the lens to cowardly sabotage and wishes to advice him to shed the cloak of intrigue and come in to the open to test his popularity against the overwhelming interest of Majority northerners.
He, therefore, urged Northerners to disregard the anti North schemes of Dr Bugaje and his conspirators and support the peaceful pursuit of a united and prosperous Nigeria as championed by the coalition of Patriotic Northern groups.
