Negative Remarks On Osinbajo: CNG Dissociates Self From Arewa Coalition


BY AMOS TAUNA, KADUNA – The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG), has viewed a statement credited to Arewa Coalition, which derogated Acting President Yemi Osinbajo and the Yoruba, with dismay and therefore dissociated themselves from the uncomplimentary remarks.

A statement by the CNG spokesman, Abudl-Azeez Suleiman said it is not in any way connected to the statement or the group that made it, and therefore called on the public to beware of people and groups currently engaged to distract its noble course.

The CNG stressed that its members do not habour any ill-will against the Yoruba or any Nigerian tribe for that matter, stressing that it is not in the character of the cultured North to do so.

It said for the avoidance of doubt, the struggle of the CNG is principally and basically to ensure that those seeking to leave Nigeria are given the chance to exercise their fundamental right as entrenched in various international treaties to which Nigeria is a signatory.

Suleiman said; “We restate here that the name of our group is Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG), and advise that any statement not coming from our spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman or Amb. Shettima Yerima or N. A. Shariff, should not be linked to us.

“While we affirm our commitment to the peaceful pursuit of the contents of the Kaduna Declaration, we wish to restate our unshaking respect for, and loyalty to Nigerian authorities and institutions.

“We also state that we hold no grudge against the person of the Acting President who is diligently discharging the burden duly entrusted in him by Mr President.

“Specifically, we feel concerned by the style of the agitation for Biafra which is punctuated by threats of war and violence,” CNG noted.
