The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF has sent out an important message to the United Kingdom, over their recent decision to grant asylum to members of the Indigenous People of Biafra and MASSOB, most especially to the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi who has been in the United Kingdom for along time now.
The National President of the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, Yerima Shettima made it known that the Nigerian government should try and review it's relationship with the United Kingdom, following the move they just made.
It should be recalled that the United Kingdom on Tuesday, revealed that they will grant asylum to members of the IPOB and MASSOB.
Furthermore, the AYCF President, made it known that he is still wondering if Nnamdi Kanu and members of IPOB are more important than Nigeria. He therefore made it known to the UK government that it is either they repatriate Nnamdi Kanu to face trial, or they will say that Kanu is better than Nigeria.
Yerima said: "...... Giving asylum to the IPOB and MASSOB means something is wrong, this means that we will start thinking that the UK is part of our problems... I was wondering, is the UK government pretending that they do not know that this guy (Nnamdi Kanu) is doing harm to Nigeria?.... The Nigerian government must be decisive; it's either the UK government repatriate him to face his trial or trial or they say that Kanu is better than Nigeria...."
This is really a funny one from the Arewa Youths. But be it as it may, we all have our own opinions and I think this is his own opinion. The United Kingdom is an independent county and they have the right to grant asylum to anyone or any group of persons. I really don't think there is an issue here.
