Ex-Governor Orji Uzor Kalu of Abia State has finally broken his silence over the quit notice given to Igbo people to vacate the 19 Northern States of Nigeria by Northern Youths Groups.
“I want to thank Yerima Shettima for agreeing to come out openly for this meeting. We have been talking for a very long time. Every day, I call him and we discuss this issue. And we are getting to a common ground. Arewa youths are making a serious consultation.”
“When they say the Igbo, they talk about people in the north who are not northerners. You don’t know who is Igbo, Urhobo or who is from Bayelsa state. All of them are Igbo as far as I am concerned. So, I want to assure the Southerners who are living in the northern part of Nigeria that we will continue to put our efforts, nothing will happen to them.”
“We are going to move forward, the country is at a difficult situation, this is the time all Nigerians should come together and make frantic efforts to salvage the country.”
