Walid Jibrin, chairman of Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP), said those calling themselves Arewa youths may not be true Hausa because no northerner supports the quit notice.
Reports have it that Walid who made this known said the quit notice is a bad action in Nigerian.
NAIJ.com gathered that the chieftain said he could remember that Igbos reside in almost every community in the north.
He recalled that leaders like Ahmadu Bello, Tafawa Balewa, Akintola, Awolowo and Azikiwe and other Nigerians mixed freely without any form of hatred against one another.
According to him, ''A true Northerner does not at all support call for Igbos to leave the north considering that there is no village or community in the north where Igbos do not live.
''Many concerned northerners have a movement called the protection of the Igbo in the North under my chairmanship, we must be allowed to live freely in any part of Nigeria.
''During the time of Sardauna of Sokoto and Akintola, northern students were transferred from north to western Region and vice versa.
''I happened to attend Okitipupa national college in Ode-Aye Onda state where we made lasting friends among the Yorubas; we must emulate Sardauna, Akintola, Awolowo, Azikiwe Tafawa Balewa.
''I want to advise all against hate speeches instead of finding ways and means for unity and peace and allow us have permanent places where ever in Nigeria.
''To continue the call for the Igbo to leave the North is enough joke which must stop immediately.
''The recent call by Benue youth that the Fulani herdsmen leaving in Benue must leave should stop because recently the Fulani elders and concerned groups have met and a delegation under my chairmanship will visit all parts to reconcile between Fulani herdsmen and farmers and various communities. We have started with Taraba''.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that Ibrahim Hassan, Jigawa state deputy governor disclosed what would happen to Igbos resident in the state if the northern youths insist on sending them out of region.
