THE Northern Elders Forum – NEF, says President Muhammadu Buhari has failed the nation in the area of security.
“The Forum regrets that by any standard of judgement, the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari has failed the nation in the vital area of improving its security,’’ Director, Advocacy and Engagements, of NEF, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmad said.
Baba-Ahmad, who addressed reporters after NEF’s meeting on national issues in Zaria, said that poverty, particularly in the North, and massive social security, have worsened under the Buhari administration.
The Professor Ango Abdullahi led forum noted that, “With this type of mindset, it is difficult to see how President Buhari can accept the challenge to radically improve his handling of our security situation”.
NEF however, said that the northern region would only support a candidate who can find solutions to problems bedeviling zone in the 2023 elections.
