On Tuesday, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna met with the Igbo Delegate Assembly in Abuja, which is made up of Igbo leaders from the 19 northern states and the Federal Capital Territory.
The South East leaders said the courtesy visit was to thank the Federal Government, Kaduna State Government, and the Northern Governors Forum for calming the situation after a group of Northern Youths issued an ultimatum for Igbos to leave the North.
The leaders of the Igbo people have said firmly that they oppose Nigeria’s division. Governor El-Rufai assured the Igbo Leaders that everyone in the North is safe on behalf of the Northern Governors.
In a letter nicknamed the Igbo Quit Notice by Nigerian media, the youthful leaders asked that the Igbos leave the north by October 1 and return to their native nation in the southeast.
They also urged the government to allow the southeast to split peacefully and bring the long-defunct Republic of Biafra back to life.
