The spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Hakeem Baba-Ahmed has reprimanded the political class for discussing Nigeria’s problems in foreign countries.
Baba Ahmed made the observation on the heels of the ongoing meetings held by some politicians outside the country, on his Twitter handle, on Sunday.
He reminded the politicians, “We do not want a president that will favour the North, but one that will be fair to all Nigerians.
As indicated by him,” Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan did not favour the North as president of the country.
Baba Ahmed marveled at what the cream de la crème politicians like Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar, Samuel Ortom, Peter Obi, Nyesom Wike, and many others are doing in Europe and Asia, stressing; “Northerners are not the only one in these countries.
“We, they plan to govern, are distractions. The deals they struck will be about how to handle us. Carve us out like carcass is and allocate powers and positions and resources to each other, the NEF spokesman queried.
“Then, they will come back and set us to fight each other. It is all about them.
He added, that they come back to Nigeria where we live with traffic and insecurity to ask us to trust them with power.
“What is it in London, Paris, and Dubai that makes them so attractive to our politicians when they want to discuss deals or untangle difficult matters?
“Just think how much it costs to go out of Nigeria to discuss Nigeria’s matter. Do we make too much noise? Are they afraid of us,” he inquried?
