Your Ultimatum Is Provocative And A Grave Threat To National Security – Atiku Reacts To Arewa Threat
A former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has condemned the ultimatum given by a coalition of Northern groups, including the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, asking Igbos to leave the North on or before October 1, 2017.
Responding in a series of tweets he posted on Twitter, Atiku declared that the ultimatum is provocative, and a grave threat to national security.
He also chided some of the responses from the Igbos saying they were reckless and thoughtless.
“Our country is too precious; our problems are too pressing to pander to divisive rhetoric,” he tweeted.
“The ultimatum issued by a Northern youth coalition to the Igbos to quit the region is provocative, and a grave threat to national security.
“The counter response by a South-east group to Northerners is also reckless and thoughtless.”
