The Northern Elders’ Forum (NEF) in Kano has hailed Acting President Yemi Osinbajo for not playing politics with Buhari’s health and absence..at the same time he was urged to be wary of mischievous elements plotting to overheat the polity by taking advantage of President Muhammadu Buhari’s absence to achieve dubious political goals.
NEF, also warned those seeking undeserved political advantage to desist from such moves.
The Forum said the North is conscious of its obligations and rights and will not hesitate to discharge and defend them without reservations.
The communiqué signed by NEF Deputy Leader, Chief Wantaregh Paul Unongo and its Spokesman, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, said the group is aware that attempts are being made to exploit the absence of President Buhari to achieve dubious political goals.
“We urge him to ignore mischief makers which seek to pitch him against the President or the Nigerian people whose mandates they both exercise.”
“The task of governing the nation will continue uninterrupted until the return of President Buhari. We therefore appeal to all persons with responsibility to cooperate fully to sustain a united, focused and committed administration.
