The need for peaceful coexistence by all tribes in Nigeria was Wednesday reinforced when Arewa youths in Anambra State signed a peace pact with the Igbo Peace Movement in Awka the capital of the state.
he two youth bodies while signing the pact expressed their unwavering commitment to peace and unity of Nigeria.

In the pact signed at a press conference the two youth bodies also expressed their commitment to an indissoluble Nigeria and urged other youths to emulate them to keep the nation one.

In a communique signed by the President of Arewa Youths in the state, Alhaji Bello Maigari and the leader of Igbo Peace Movement, Ambassador Divine Onyekachi, they stated their resolve to ensure that Nigeria was not plunged into another civil crisis.

They stressed that though there might be valid reasons for agitations in the country by some sections, such agitations must be done through proper procedures.

According to the youths: “Peace and unity of the country are paramount and should supersede every other interest. Nigeria’s strength is in the nation’s unity in diversity and only convergence of efforts from all ethnic groups can make Nigeria reclaim its rightful place in the comity of nations.”

Also the youths acknowledged what they described as the federal and state governments commendable steps towards reassuring Nigerians of the country’s unity as evidenced in the recent visit of some northern governors on a peace mission to the South-East.

They, therefore, called on MASSOB, Igbo Youth Congress, Indigenous People of Biafra, Arewa Consultative Forum, Northern Youth Congress and Concerned Northerners to do all they could to make the country great.
Ambassador Oneykachi, said that the younger generation must wake up and make a difference in the country by ensuring that peace reigned while his Arewa counterpart, Maigari said the purpose of the meeting was to preach peace among Nigerians.

Two quick to make this arrangement/agreement. A lot of things need to be ironed out in a closed-door conference: put all grievances on the table, apologies rendered, all expectations enumerated, strengths and weaknesses identified, causes of conflicts identified, way forward stated, visions and causes of lack of vision isolated, equality of citizens guaranteed etc. One does not wake up one morning to become a best friend to his/her worst known enemy. This is a make belief and makeshift friendship intended to mend face for cheap political gains. The core and ringleaders of crimes of hate are still out there with their heart so dark waiting to strike at the slightest opportunity.  It is too early to reach this agreement because Arewa Youths and Igbo youths are not the only youths' movement in the dysfunctional experiment/project called Nigeria.
