The Arewa Consultative Forum ACF), has distanced itself from the recent calls made by ex Niger Delta Militant, Asari Dokubo, calling for the integration of Nigeria.
Asari Dokubo made the headlines over the weekend when he declared himself the leader of the new Biafra defacto Customary Government (BCG) and called on some persons to serve under his leadership as he fights for the actualization of Biafra.
The National Publicity Secretary of the Arewa Consultative Forum, Emmanuel Yawe, while reacting to the development, said the North is only after the unity of Nigeria and not interested in pushing for Arewa Republic.
He added that the country had fought a civil war to keep Nigeria as one and that the lessons learnt from the war should not be forgotten in a hurry.
“We are not interested in the Arewa Republic. We believe in one Nigeria, we fought a civil war to keep Nigeria one and we cannot fight a civil war only to come and declare an independent nation again.”he said
