Ohaneze Ndigbo has formally reacted to the ultimatum as Arewa Youths insist they must leave adding that they have no plans to be violent.
In a statement issued by the Deputy Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chuks Ibegbu, said the Northern groups had no right to speak or decide for other Nigerians.
The statement reads: “One thing they (Northern groups) should know is that they are not speaking for the Niger Delta; they are not speaking for the Middle Belt; they are not speaking for the South-West, who have all spoken out to condemn the ultimatum given to the Igbo to leave the North. 

“They should be made to understand that threats of separation started with the North. In 1950, during the Ibadan Conference, the North threatened to secede if not given half of the seats in parliament.
“Again, after the counter-coup in 1966, the North threatened to secede until they were assured that power is now in their hands.
“Biafra is not an Igbo thing; every Nigerian is a Biafran. The Biafra agitation is a cry against injustice.
“Even geographically, Biafra is not an Igbo thing; it has never been an Igbo thing,” Ibegbu said.
