Coalition of 52 Northern Group, CNG, has warned the Federal Government to be wary of the United Nation, UN, interest in the case of the detained supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The CNG equally cautioned officials of the UN to keep off Nigeria’s internal affairs, particularly Kanu’s case.
This is even as the 52 organisations accused the Nigerian Labour Congress of deception, saying that its failure to execute the threat to embark on a 3-day nationwide strike two-weeks after its public protest over the rift between the government and the university lecturers was merely an attempt to gain social power and political influence ahead of the forthcoming general elections.
These were contained in a communique signed by the CNG spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman and issued to journalists in Abuja on Monday, at the end of the coalition’s three day retreat.
The communique reads, “We caution the UN to desist from allowing some of its officials to drag it into international disrepute by interfering in particular with the matter of the trial of the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
“We equally caution the Nigerian authorities against succumbing to undue pressure from whatever quarter so as to avoid setting a dangerous precedence in the country.
“We condemn unequivocally the obvious double standards and deception by the Nigerian Labour Congress with its unexplained silence on its pledge to resume a three-day nationwide solidarity protest several days after the expiration of their two-weeks ultimatum for government to act to resolve the universities workers’ crisis.”
