We Don’t Recognise June 12 As Democracy Day –Northern Groups

The Coalition of Northern Groups has said it does not recognise the legitimacy of June 12 as Democracy Day.

CNG said it at a press conference addressed by its spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, in Kaduna on Friday.

Abdul-Azeez also said the coalition would not participate in the planned nationwide protests on June 12. He said the reason for this decision was that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra were set to make the protests violent.

He said, “We can’t drag the North into an agenda that is not properly stated and for which we are not even contacted. This is in addition to keeping the North away from the trap set by IPOB to sponsor infiltration in some northern states to turn the protests violent. In the event of any ugly incidence, the anti-North schemers would then hold the region up as the volatile section of the country.

“Another reason for our non-participation of CNG and all our affiliates and organs is the fact that we do not recognise the legitimacy of June 12 as Democracy Day in the first place.”
