Northern Leaders of Thought, a group of distinguished Nigerians from the north, has called a “general meeting” for Saturday to discuss the status of events in the region.
According to Vanguard, the summit, which is neither party nor religious, would also look into the North’s relationship with the rest of the country.
The conference, according to the Northern Leaders of Thought (NLT), would take place on January 15, the 56th anniversary of Nigeria’s first military coup, which claimed the lives of many leading politicians and army officers, particularly from the north.
As a result, the NLT’s organising secretary, Alhaji Abdullahi Usman Toro, issued an open invitation to the parley on Thursday night, inviting governors of northern states, members of the National Assembly from the region, the Northern Elders’ Forum, organized Northern civil groups, and other stakeholders.
The invitation is entitled, ‘Meeting of Northern Leaders of Thought, 15th January, 2022, at Arewa House, Kaduna.”
It reads in part, “The Meeting will be a rare platform to examine the state of the North and its relationship with the rest of Nigeria.
“It is planned to encourage the development of ideas and recommendations that will improve the region’s state of security, economy, and political fortunes.
“January 15th is significant in Nigerian history because it was the date the late Premier of Northern Nigeria, Sir Ahmadu Bello, and many other Northerners and other Nigerians were murdered by military elements in 1966. The Arewa House accommodates the official residence of the late Sardauna of Sokoto.”
Meanwhile, the Northern Leaders of Thought said that a communique reflecting the key decisions taken at the meeting will be released after the parley.
