A stringent call on Northern governors to evolve a “Northern Agenda” has been made by the Chairman of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Alhaji Ibrahim Coomassie.
Such an agenda, he said, would take care of all the various interests in the region in line with the advocacies of people from other regions of the country.
Speaking at a dinner in Katsina Government House to honour Katsina State delegates to the just- concluded 2014 National Conference, Coomassie said time has come for all Northerners to accommodate their differences and bury grudges and misunderstandings.
He went on: “we should not forget that Niger Delta on the platform of self-determination are bent on declaring their republic if they do not get 100 percent derivation on oil.
“The South West and Biafra are waiting on the wings. We should not be caught with our pants down” he said.
