Ijaw, Niger Delta youths seek fellowship with middle belt youths

- Ijaw youths of the Niger Delta are seeking friendship with youths of middle belt region of Nigeria

- The needed friendship is predicated on the region youths dissociation from the quit notice issued to Igbos to quit the northern states within three months

- The youths said the present Nigeria is suffocating and that restructuring was needed to make the nation work

Following the dissociation of Middle Belt youths from the quit notice issued by a faction of Northern youths to Igbos resident in the North, the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) on Thursday said it is extending a hand of fellowship to the youths of the region.

In a statement made available to Legit.ng, President of the IYC, Eric Omare, commended the Middle Belt youths for dissociating themselves from the quit notice, saying the middle belt position made available by Emma Zopmal was an indication of maturity and respect for Nigerians from different parts of the country to express opinion as to the structure of Nigeria.

Omare, who came hard on the present structural arrangement of Nigeria, said the country as it is presently is suffocating and is in dire need of urgent surgery to reconstruct it so as to achieve unity, peace and progress, the motto of the nation.

The IYC president said: “It is in this light that we are gladdened by the expression of support for self-determination by the Middle Belt Youth Council.

“The Ijaw nation and the Niger Delta people express solidarity and extend hands of friendship to the Middle Belt Youth Council and the people of the middle belt for being their brothers keepers and for their support for self-determination.
