Stop fighting in public, Northern elders advise governors
The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has advised Northern governors to stop fighting in public as the region is facing a multifaceted problem that citizens look upon them for succour.
Their fighting is sending wrong signals to the citizens of the region.
Speaking in Kaduna on Thursday during the meeting of the Northern Governors and Traditional rulers, the NEF, Hakeem Baba Ahmed said the fighting also dampens the morals of the people.
According to the NEF spokesman, such fighting from leaders is least expected, saying, they must come together inspite of their political inclinations and other interests to rescue the region.
He also commended the Northern Governors for their quick intervention in the recent crisis in Sasa, Ibadan, saying, their intervention doused the tension in the region.
However, inspite of their intervention, he said Northerners are still not safe in most part of the South West.
Also speaking, the Arewa Consultative Forum said they are in full support of any efforts that will bring peace to the region.
Speaking on behalf of the forum, the Deputy Chairman of the forum, Senator Ibrahim Ida remarked that too much blood had been shed in the region.
“It is time to join hands to bring an end to these wanton killings and destruction in the region.
Ida said the economic potentials of the region is being threatened by Boko Haram and other forms of criminalities threatening the main foundation of our nationhood.
