Arewa

The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has withdrawn the quit notice it issued to the south-easterners based in the north.

On June 5, northern youths organisations — Arewa Citizens Action for Change, Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, Arewa Youth Development Foundation, Arewa Students Forum and Northern Emancipation Network on the Igbo Persistence for Recession — had given Igbo residing in the region up till October 1, 2017, to leave.

They had cited the agitation by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for the country’s division as the reason for their action.

The ultimatum was lifted on Thursday in Abuja after a meeting that was brokered by Kashim Shettima, Governor of Borno State.

Also in attendance at the meeting were elders from both the south-eastern and northern regions of the country.
