The South East Chairman, Nigerian Young Professionals Forum (NYPF), Dr. Chima Anyaso, in an interview said the recent quit notice given to Igbos residing in the Northern part of Nigeria by a coalition of Arewa youth groups and the calls for secession by members of IPOB are national issues that should not be treated lightly.
According to him, with the ‘Quit Notice’ ultimatum given to Igbos resident in Northern Nigeria by some Arewa Youths, a subtle crisis has started brewing across the nation.
“These have caused palpable fear, sowing seeds of discord and could degenerate into anarchy if left unchecked.
“We have carefully listened to various stakeholders ranging from Governors Forums, Northern Elders, Ohaneze Ndigbo and elder statesmen who have lent their voices to the topic and have deemed it appropriate for the youth to state our position with the aim of dousing the uncertainty.
“After all, the youth stand to bear the biggest brunt if things spill out of control. And, it is our future that could be upheld or destroyed by the events that would unfold,” Anayso added.
