Shettima Yerima, chairman of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has assured that the North is at peace with all Nigerians.
He said this after a meeting with former Abia State governor, Orji Kalu, on Tuesday.
The meeting held at Kalu’s office in Abuja.
Yerima, who is also leader of the Coalition of Arewa Youths that asked Igbos to vacate the North before October 1, 2017, said Kalu had shown a lot of concern and was worried that the unity of Nigeria was being threatened.
He said: “We have had series of meetings with a lot of prominent Nigerians and we want the unity of Nigeria.
“We identify with Kalu because he believes in the unity of Nigeria, going by his antecedents; we have assured him of our commitment to one Nigeria and our meeting was fruitful.
“We strongly believe that Nigeria is one and it is for us. We held meeting with Northern governors and we promised to make a statement and this is part of the process.
“Be rest assured that there is no cause for alarm; we assure everybody who believes in Nigeria of their safety”.
Yerima said that the coalition would engage in further consultations before taking a final position.
Meanwhile, Orji Kalu has also spoken on the meeting.
