The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, says it will not participate in the June 12 planned nationwide protest.

The group noted that they were not contacted, hence it would not take part in the protest.

The CNG spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman in a statement explained that it is not in the group’s tradition to jump into a flight without knowing its actual destination.

The statement observed that it can not drag the North into an agenda that is not properly stated and for which they are not even contacted.

The group said its decision 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.

It stressed that in the event of an ugly incident, the anti-North schemers would then hold the region up as the volatile section of the country.

It added that another reason for the non-participation of CNG and all their affiliates and organs is the fact that they do not recognize the legitimacy of June 12 as Democracy Day in the first place.

“CNG said, however, the protests, planned on the first anniversary of the shift of Democracy Day from 29th May to June 12, is a backlash for one of President Muhammadu Buhari’s numerous political slips that made him attach such undue relevance to the events of June 12, saying it serves him right.”
