Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has complained about President Muhammadu Buhari’s level of competence, saying it is sliding the nation into disasters.
The forum in a statement yesterday by its Director, Publicity and Advocacy, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed who warned that the negative attitude of the presidency towards engaging Nigerians to tap into ideas, grievances and goodwill of many citizens who mean well is ill-informed and, under our current circumstances, dangerous.
Dr Baba-Ahmed further said that it is now clear that elected people sworn to protect the constitution and protect the unity and integrity of Nigeria have decided to surrender to deeply divisive or outrightly irredentist and secessionist tendencies and movements.
He said that it is unfortunate that the current efforts of the National Assembly to amend the constitution enjoys little or no confidence among Nigerians that they will address the fundamental challenges which need to be comprehensively addressed.
He warned that other political leaders who take advantage of the limitations of the president to light fires should know that they will get burnt in them.
Baba-Ahmed the forum once again condoles the nation and families of Lt-Gen I Attahiru and other military officers who died in active duty. May God bestow His Mercies on their souls.
