The Coalition of Northern Groups on Sunday distanced itself from the planned revolution march slated for Monday nationwide.
The CNG declared that those organizing the protest are “couriers of foreign destabilization plot” that are not in the interest of the North.
The body, therefore, urged Northerners to disregard calls for the protest march.
At a news conference held at the Arewa House, Kaduna, CNG’s spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, said the North would not participate in the protest.
He said the group will not participate, support or encourage any actions that are potentially dangerous to the region and move to destabilize the country.
Abdul-Azeez Suleiman then called on all northerners to shun the protest and resist any attempt of being dragged into participating in any way in a movement that turns out to the disadvantage of the region.
He noted that similar foreign agenda that unfolded with the ugly scenarios of destruction in Libya, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Egypt, and others are very fresh for us to realize the futility of jumping on a flight without knowing its actual destination.
Solacebase recalled that the Coalition of Northern Groups had issued a three-month notice to Igbos in the northern states to leave the region two years ago when there was a threat against northern interest in the Southern part of the country.
