The former governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, on Tuesday, received the leaders of the Coalition of Arewa Youths led by its chairman, Alhaji Shettima Yerima in his office in Abuja.

The meeting was following the backdrop of the quit notice served by AREWA Youths to Igbo people living in the North to vacate the region before Oct 1 this year.

Worried over the quit notice served to his Igbo kinsmen, Orji Kalu, in a social media post he made shortly after he met with the Arewa youth leaders said, “I met with the same group that made the Kaduna declaration in which three months quit notice was given to the Igbo living in the North.

"The quit notice has actually been a source of worry to me because I knew the commitments of our people around the world not to talk more of being economic migrants in nature.

"The unnecessary uprising caused by the quit notice inundated me to call them to order as nothing is too much to be sacrificed for peace. I believe the actions of these youth were borne out of frustration and I am happy that they have promised me today that they will further consult to sheath their swords and denounce their declaration.

"Today, they have given me their word of embracing peace and maintaining that no harm shall befall any of our people in the North. I believe in a united Nigeria where fairness, equity and justice are instituted . I also believe that our lives are sacrosanct and no Igbo blood should be spilled at any slightest provocation again.” Kalu added.

Meanwhile, they had group photographs with their host (Kalu) as proof of their commitment to the promise and rethink.
