Northern Media Forum Issues Advisories in Respect of 2023 Elections.
They said the North is not just the headquarters of banditry, it is home to millions of IDPs who became victims of insurgency, banditry and herder-fulani clashes.
They also lost their homes and means of livelihood too. Something needs to be done urgently for them to be relocated back to their homes or permanent abodes.
They also said No politician should come tomorrow to say they didn’t know how daunting the catastrophe was. They should have no business seeking to govern if they have no antidotes to the challenges that ail our society.
The Northern Media Forum however sounds a note of warning on the possible disenfranchisement of this critical mass of people.
And also urge all security agencies to secure the IDPs, while INEC should make arrangement for them to be able to cast their votes and make an independent decision on who to govern them.
They condemned the new and disgusting angle to campaigns in Nigeria—that is, campaigns centred on personality attacks.
