Insecurity: Buhari blasts Northern Elders, says they are mere irritant, featherweight

PublishedBy: in NewsJune 15, 2020

The Presidency has advised Nigerians to ignore a statement which was issued by Prof. Ango Abdullahi on behalf of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) insinuating that security challenges in northern states have overwhelmed both the federal and northern state governments.

The forum on Sunday in a statement signed by Mr Abdullahi, claimed that the insecurity in some northern states of the country indicated that President Muhammadu Buhari and the governors of those states have lost control over the protection of the people, which is a constitutional duty

However, Femi Adesina, spokesman for the president in a statement in Abuja on Sunday frowned at the statement, saying Mr Abdullahi was only speaking for himself as he continues to constitute ”a mere irritant and featherweight.”

Saying that: ”We are not surprised by this latest statement by Prof. Abdullahi, and our past position on what his group represents remains unchanged: a mere irritant and featherweight.

”The former vice chancellor signed the statement under the banner of Northern Elders Forum (NEF).

”Hearing that title, you would think the body was a conglomeration of true elders. But the truth is that NEF is just Ango Abdullahi, and Ango Abdullahi is NEF.”

According to Adesina, NEF is a quasi-organisation that boasts of no credible membership, and its leader is akin to a General without troops.

”Before the 2019 presidential election, the one-man army called NEF had shown its antipathy against President Buhari, and its preference for another candidate. They all got beaten together.

”NEF is merely waving a flag that is at half-mast. President Buhari steadily and steadfastly focuses on the task of retooling Nigeria, and discerning Nigerians know the true state of the nation.

”They don’t need a paper tiger to tell them anything,” he added.
