Nigeria's Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo appears under serious pressure following the ultimatum handed him by the Southern Leaders Forum Southern Leaders Forum.
The ultimatum include to disclose the plans being taken by the Federal Government to protect Southerners in the Northern part of the country as the deadline issued the Igbos by the Arewa Youths Coalition to vacate the region draws near.
The second ultimatum by the Southern leaders is for the Federal Government to urgently set up structures for the implementation of the 2014 Confab report to enable the 36 states assume their status as federating states in line with the provision of the Nigerian Constitution.
This follows a meeting held in Lagos by the Southern leaders where they also warned that attack on any Southerner would be treated as an attack on all Southerner which will be considered as an attack on the entire Southern Nigeria. This the leaders said they will not tolerate under any guise. 
Speaking in the meeting by the Forum President and the former Director-General of the Department of State Security, Albert Horsefall, which was attended by  the former governor of Akwa Ibom state, Obong Victor Attah, Afenifere chieftains, Ayo Adebanjo, Femi Okurounmu, former managing director of Niger Delta Development Commission, Timi Alaibe, Tony Uranta, President of Ijaw Monitoring Group, Joseph Eva, Senator Bassey Ewa Henshaw and Afenifere spokesman, Yinka Odumakin, he said the planned attack against any Southerner residing in the North after the October deadline will be met with an overwhelming response while expressing disappointment that up till now the Federal Government has not take any concrete step to bring those who issued the quit notice to Igbos to book.



He said. “We are disconcerted that, up till now, no action appears to have been taken regarding the October 1 threat issued by Arewa youths. We, therefore, demand that Osinbajo inform Nigerians of what actions and steps has been taken to protect the Igbo and all Southerners who live in the North against the the threats of the Arewa youths. We reiterate that any threat or action against anyone from the South will be treated as a threat or action against all Southerners.”  
“We note with gratitude, a statement by the acting president, that the issue of restructuring will be addressed soon and we urge him to follow his statement with immediate action by acting on the recommendations of the 2014 National Conference. The issue of restructuring and change was an integral part of the All Progressives Congress (APC) manifesto.
“We want the 16-point agenda that was submitted by the South-South delegation, submitted in their meeting with the acting president to be acted upon immediately, to avoid youth restiveness and sustain the current peace.  
“There is an urgent need to restructure Nigeria to achieve true federalism. We will not be distracted by individuals who claim ignorance of what restructuring means or those who try to imply a non-existent sinister plan to  break up Nigeria because of the demand for restructuring. We affirm our commitment to the unity of Nigeria and also, insist on the urgent need to restructure Nigeria, to achieve true federalism.
“For the avoidance of doubt, restructuring is a return to the constitution of independence which our founding fathers bequeathed to us. That constitution allowed the states autonomy in the management of their affairs.  
“The states will be federating units, with its own with rights to have their own constitution. The states will have control of its resources and make agreed contributions to the federal government for general services.
 “We will identify those areas of our Constitution which should allow for effective administration in the states.  It is important that action be commenced immediately, to ensure that the entire changes are implemented by December 2017.”
On the menace of the Fulani herdsmen, the forum also alerted the international community on the dangers their activities pose to the Southern part of Nigeria.
“We want to alert the international community and we also want the FG to take appropriate actions against them. We want the FG to make an official statement on this and take appropriate action to put them in check.”
