An unidentified Hausa man has asked the federal government to do all within its powers to allow the Igbos who have been agitating for the secession of the South-East and South-South region of Nigeria go.
Speaking from an unknown location, the man also advised the Igbo people to desist from creating violence but leave Nigeria peacefully.
"We want a peaceful coexistence as Nigerians that is our request; but they don't want it, it is ok. Allow them to have their own nation," the unidentified man said.
Also commending the Northern youths for the 3-month ultimatum given to the Igbos living in the North, the man said, the resolution termed the Kaduna declaration was formidable.
You could see that we are thinking, we have vast agricultural land where we can earn a living, fertile land," the man said.
Showing round his environment, the man said the lands are fertile and could serve as a means of livelihood for the Northerners.
Citing examples of some foreign countries, the man said: "You [forgot] what agriculture is all about, it is the bedrock of humanity, you can live a life without a car... but you cannot live a complete 24 hours a day without a meal."
He said: "Igbos, bye-bye. You can go!"
But please, if you are going, go peacefully, do not cause any trouble in this country. We don't want any fight, we don't want any war.
All I am saying, personally is, we the North, we must support the Igbos to get out of this marriage," he added.
The group in a briefing tagged, "Kaduna declaration" said the Igbo have made a lot of trouble with their threat to leave Nigeria.
However, in a recent meeting with some Northern leaders, the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo cautioned Northerners over the ultimatum given to the Igbos.
Osinbajo also said the federal government will not take the threat issued to the Igbos living in the North by the Northern youth group lightly.
