They, however, ended with a demand for the convocation of a national youth confab.

A communique issued after the meeting was signed by, Comrade Eric Oluwale of the Yoruba Youth Council Worldwide and Secretary General Ethnic National Youths Leaders, Comrade Emma Zompal of the Middle Belt Youth Council Worldwide, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council and Barr. Oweilaemi Ereotubo of the Ijaw Youths and Arewa Northern youths assembly led by Alh Ibrahim Waiya.

The communique was read by the middle belt youth council National President‎, Emma Zompal, flanked by over 100 man delegation.

The youth groups hinged their call for a ceasefire on the intervention of former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi.

The communique read in part: “Having observed with worry and keen interest‎ the ongoing tension across the country, which arose as a result of the quit notice on Igbos in the Northern part of Nigeria, we met today, June 14, 2017 in Abuja and took far reaching decisions.

“We condemned the quit notice served by Arewa youths‎ to Igbos resident in the North and have resolved for peace to reign in all quarters. The meeting has, however, instituted peace process of reconciling the north and the south east.

“We are still insisting on restructuring of the country so as to guarantee an equitable federalism for peaceful co existence.

“For the collective interest of Nigeria, we are calling for a ceasefire among all the aggrieved youth groups in the country. Pushing this matter too far has grave implication for Nigeria and by extension, the youths.

“We have resolved to toe the line of peace owing to the fatherly advice from the former governor of Anambra State, Chief Peter Obi, the Okwute Ndigbo.

The youths, without hesitation, are ready to heed his advice considering his towering reputation beyond the shores of Nigeria. He remains in history as the best Governor Anambra has ever had and for that singular reason, his intervention is welcome.

“Obi has made it clear to the youths that there is futility in disunity and songs of war. He has convinced us that we are better of together, united.

“In the light of the above, we call for immediate end to further verbal exchanges on the above matter. This is the time for us to unite and champion a common course for Nigeria’s unity.

“However, the youths hereby resolved that there will be a national Youth confab in other to address fundamental problem confronting our dear country by July; date and venue will be communicated in due course.
