Arewa Group condemns Northern Governors Over Visit To Rivers

The Arewa Initiative for peaceful Coexistence in Southern Nigeria, AIPCSN, has condemned the five Northern governors’ visit to Chief Nyesom Wike, after the clash between ‘Hausa community and the secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB’, in the state.

According to Daily Post: The National Coordinator of AIPCSN, Alhaji Musa Saidu, berated governors over refusal to commiserate with the victims, noting that the victims of the clash had expected them to visit them or the scene of the incident.

Saidu who spoke to journalists in Port Harcourt said the attitude showed that the Northerners living in the Southern part of the country were not valued by their leaders.

He said: “Now, we knew that five of our own governors came to the State, stayed and left without a message for us.

“We had expected the governors to visit us and know how we are feeling.

“We had expected them to come and commiserate with the Hausa community in Rivers State.

“They did not visit us, they did not visit the scene where the incident happened in Rivers State. Their action was not good,”
