FEMI ADESINA: NORTHERN ELDERS FORUM IS A PAPER TIGER, LACKS CREDIBLE MEMBERSHIP

THE Presidency on Sunday berated the Northern Elders
Forum, NEF, saying that it does not have any credible
membership.
The Presidency in a statement signed by the Special
Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi
Adesina described the association as a one-man show that
is like a general without troops which revolves on Prof. Ango
Abdullahi.
Adesina noted that the group had before the 2019
presidential elections expressed its hatred for President
Muhammadu Buhari, adding that the candidate NEF
supported in the election suffered defeat.
The statement read, “Professor Ango Abdullahi on Sunday
signed a long-winding statement on many issues relating to
the North, and purportedly to the country.
” 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. It is a quasi-organization 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
Muhammadu Buhari, and its preference for another
candidate. They all got beaten together.”
Continuing, Adesina said, “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.
