A coalition of youths groups and Igbo elders in Sokoto State, on Wednesday resolved to work for a united, indivisible Nigeria, the News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN) reports.

The groups made the declaration at the end of a joint meeting in Sokoto convened sequel to recent threat to evict Igbos from the North.

“The youths groups stand for one Nigeria and the country will remain one. This is what we will continue to believe and stand for,’’ they said in a statement.

The President-General, Igbo Community in Sokoto, Chief Charles Uwaga, and the Ohaneze Ndi Igbo Youth Leader, Mr Kelechi Obonna, told newsmen that they back steps taken by acting President, Mr Yemi Osinbajo, to ensure sustainable peace and unity in the country.

“The dialogue he has so far started with the northern elders and those planned with the leaders from other parts of the country are very commendable.

“These efforts should be sustained and replicated across the country, while we are condemning any hate speech or statement by anybody from any part of Nigeria," he added.

‘’ They should continue to do so without any let or hindrance, and all Nigerians stand to benefit more under a united and indivisible Nigeria.’’
