Quit Notice to Igbos : Christian Leaders Declare 30-Day Fasting, Prayers
… Seeks for God’s intervention

A religious group under the auspices of Non-Indigenous  Christian Leaders Network (NICLN),Kaduna State has called on all Nigerians to embark on a 30-day fasting and prayers against the quit notice issued to Igbos by the Arewa Coalition groups to leave the North.
In a statement signed by NICLN Chairman,Rev.Joseph.O. Ajayi and Secretary, Pastor Vitalis. S. Yahemba, while condemning the threat explained that it becomes necessary for clerics to declare prayers for God intervention in the land.
The statement described the quit notice by the self style ‘Northern Youths’ as evil,disgraceful and a serious threat to national security and unity, stressing that the Arewa youths action is also capable of inflaming chaos and disunity in the country.
According to the Christian leaders, Nigerians should celebrate the nation’s diversity and live together in peace and harmony as brothers and sisters.
The statement reads:” while the security agencies and the government are handling their aspect, we call on all Nigerians of different religious background to embark on a 30- day fasting and prayers for God intervention in our land. The leadership of the non-Indigenous Christian Leaders Network (NICLN) Kaduna State views with great concern and disappointment,the ultimatum issued by a coalition of Northern Youths groups to Igbos to vacate the Northern part of Nigeria within three months.”
” It is the constitutional right of every law abiding Nigerian to stay anywhere,live in peace,move freely and carry out legitimate duties in any part of Nigeria. What we are saying is that urgent steps should be taken to nip this satanic outburst in the bud”
We appreciate the timely statement issued by the Kaduna State Governor,Nasir El-Rufai on this volatile issue”
We are also calling on the Igbos in the North and northerners living in the South East region of the country to ignore the so called “Kaduna declaration” and remain where they are currently staying”
“We are in democracy and freedom of association and speech are allowed. However,any association or speech by anyone capable of throwing the nation into serious problem must not be allowed. In view of this, the network is calling on Corporate Affairs Commission to cancel certificates of incorporation or registration of any registered group that promotes disunity in their utterances and hate speeches. Though tribe and tongue may differ,in brotherhood we stand” the statement said.
