Daily Trust - - NEWS - From An­drew Agbese, Kaduna

The Coali­tion of North­ern Groups (CNG) has de­nied re­nounc­ing the dec­la­ra­tion it made ask­ing Igbo liv­ing in North­ern Nigeria to quit.

In a state­ment signed by its spokesman Ab­du­lazseez Suleiman, the group said it stood by the Kaduna Dec­la­ra­tion made on June 6, and called on the pub­lic not to be­lieve any con­trary re­port.

“We urge the pub­lic and all other stake­hold­ers to dis­re­gard that iso­lated me­dia re­port and treat it as mis­chievous, des­per­ate, un­war­ranted and un­founded,” the group said, urg­ing the pub­lic to re­main pa­tient as the group would meet to­day “to re­view and take a def­i­nite stand on our dis­cus­sions and cor­re­spon­dences with var­i­ous in­ter­na­tional and na­tional fig­ures and agen­cies on the mat­ter.”

Stress­ing that it re­mained com­mit­ted to the Kaduna Dec­la­ra­tion, the group said, “We re­main de­sirous of a fu­ture united, strong and pros­per­ous Nigeria mi­nus the Bi­afrans as a com­po­nent.”
