Quit Notices, A joke taken too far – PDP 

August 16, 2017

The Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT) Chairman, Jubrin Walid, has described as huge jokes the order by northern youths for Igbo to quit the region and the counter call by militants in the Niger Delta to Hausa/Fulani and Yoruba to quit the South-South as huge jokes which must be discontinued.

He also warned that the order by Benue youths on the Fulani to quit their land should beignored.

Walid, in a statement he issued on Tuesday, said that no true northerner would not support the quit notice that Igbos should leave the North.

He explained that Fula­ni elders and a concerned group have met and a del­egation under his chair­manship will visit all parts of the country to reconcile the Fulani herdsmen, farm­ers and the affected com­munities.

While warning against hate speeches, Walid said: “I want to advise all against hate speeches, instead, we should find ways and means for unity and peace and allow us have perma­nent places whereever we are in Nigeria.

“To continue to call for Igbo in the North to quit is enough joke, which must stop immediately. Anoth­er call from militants in the South-South that north­erners and Yoruba should leave must also stop.

“The recent call by Benue youths that the Fu­lani herdsmen living in the state must leave should stop because recently the Fula­ni elders and a concerned group have met and a del­egation under my chair­manship is to visit all parts of the country to reconcile Fulani herdsmen, farmers and various communities. We have started with Tara­ba State,” he said.

According to him, “a true Northerner does not support Igbo to leave the North. We must be allowed to live freely in any part of Nigeria. Many concerned northerners have a move­ment called: ‘The Protec­tion of Igbo in North’ un­der my chairmanship from North to Western Region. I happened to attend Ok­itipupa National College in Ode-Aye, Ondo State where we made lasting friends among the Yoru­ba, we must emulate the late Sardauna, Akintola, Awolowo, Azikiwe, Tafawa Balewa,” he said.
