The statement which was obtained from Punch Newspapers reads: “Our people have hope that the new administration will engender a genuine rapprochement between nationalities in Nigeria; but there are now growing perceptions, at least in the southern parts of the country, that the President might be slipping into the stereotypical Northern hegemony inclination he was labelled as having the during the campaigns."

“The ARG demands, therefore, a reassuring response from the Presidency, especially in subsequent presidential appointments and decisions, because if this scenario continues to play out, it will be difficult to retain the trust and expectation that drove what eventually brought to reality the current coalesced Federal Government,” the statement said.

According to Punch, the statement was released by the group's Publicity Secretary, Kunle Famoriyo.
