The Northern Youth Group, under the auspices of Arewa Triumphant Youth Foundation (ATYF) has appealed to members of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) agitating for a Biafran state to lay down their arms and allow peace to reign in the country, yesterday at a press conference.

The National President of the group, Ibrahim Yusuf said, Northerners will not be happy to see South-Easterners pull out of Nigeria. He begged them to embrace peace irrespective of tribe or religion and also asked the government to come to their aide. Hear him;

“We are brothers. We should be able to live together as one big family. Nothing should separate us. MASSOB should lay down their arms, and allow us to stay together for the betterment of this great country.

“There is no doubt that 99 per cent of these people that are into these various crises are young persons, and this is because they are jobless, and to stop them from being violent, government at all levels must provide jobs and the enabling environment for the youth.

“President Buhari should fulfill his promise paying N5,000 to unemployed persons in the country, even though I don’t support the idea of sharing money because it may cause crisis, and make people lazy.

“I will rather support government giving the people nets to catch fish than giving them fish to eat, and rebuild the country of one nation, one vision and one goal.

“Government should realise that as one Nigeria, until it brings everybody together, the country will continue to have crisis.”
