The group named as Middle Belt Alliance (MBA) has called for the dissociation of North Central from North East and North West, stating that the integration of Hausa-Fulani with the "peaceful" people of the Middle Belt is bringing more pains than joy (in reference to Fulani herdsmen attacks).

In a communique released after the group's meeting in Benue State capital Makurdi on Monday 22 August and signed by chairman Leonard Shilgba, and Secretary, Andrew Ayuba Butswat, MBA also said:
"We must be proud of our culture and the pre-dominant religion (Christianity) of our region. No Islamic theocracy shall be accepted in any part of our territory.

"Any constitutional arrangement that seeks to permit Sharia law implementation in any inch of our territory shall be resisted with all resources at our disposal. Religion is an individual choice to make, and must not be imposed."
