KADUNA DECLARATION Senators, Ohaneze calls for Calm

Mannamart.blogspot.com gatheed that the President-Gen­eral, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nwodo, has commended the Fed­eral Government for condemning the “quit notice” given to Igbo living in the northern part of the country.
Nwodo spoke on Thursday in Enugu at a symposium organised by the Enugu State chapter of the Trade Union Congress (TUC).
He said that the Igbo Nation was appreciative of all patriotic Ni­gerians who rose against such di­visive utterances by the northern groups.
The Ohanaeze leader also com­mended Governor El-Rufai for his decision to fish out and prosecute the people behind such hate speech­es.
Nwodo said that such utter­ances were capable of truncating the unity of the country.
In a reaction to the incident, the South East Senate Caucus has asked Igbo residing in the North to ignore the threat and go about their lawful businesses.
In a statement issued by its Chairman, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, in Abuja, the Caucus de­scribed the quit order by the Arewa youths as “poisonous, irresponsible and one that is aimed at dealing a deadly blow to Nigeria’s unity.”
Abaribe said Section 41 (1) of the 1999 Constitution of the Feder­al Republic of Nigeria (as amend­ed), guaranteed the right of “every Nigerian to move freely in and re­side in any part thereof, and no citi­zen of Nigeria shall be expelled from Nigeria or refused entry thereto or exit therefrom.”
“So, nobody or groups of per­sons have the right to abridge the right of the Igbo or any other Nige­rian for that matter”.
The Caucus also asked the peo­ple to be very cautious and vigilant while going about their normal businesses, especially when viewed from the fact that the security agen­cies became lethargic in the face of the treasonable threat by the so-called Arewa youths.
Northern youths’ action threat to national unity – CCC
The Centre for Crisis Commu­nication (CCC) has also expressed concern on the chain of events that has culminated into the unfortunate ultimatum issued to Igbo to vacate the northern region by the Coali­tion of Arewa Youths.
The Centre described the pro­nouncement as “unconstitution­al, provocative and a threat to the peaceful co-existence among the citizens and capable of severing the cord that binds Nigerians.”
In a statement issued in Abu­ja, the Centre’s Executive Secretary, Air Commodore Yusuf Anas (rtd), said that the coalition’s declaration may have been in response to the resurgence of secessionist tenden­cies orchestrated by the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and Move­ment of the Actualisation of the Sov­ereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) in the South East of Nigeria.
Anas admonished IPOB and its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to modify their modus operandi by embracing dialogue with a view to addressing the myriads of socioec­onomic and political issues of the South East and project ideas devoid of antagonistic tendencies.
As a way forward, Anas said that the 15th January of every year, which is the Armed Forces Remem­brance Day, should be expanded to be a National Remembrance Day to be set aside to celebrate the unity of the country and commemorate the civilians and military person­nel who lost their lives during the unfortunate civil war in order not to give room for mischief makers.
