ACF dissociates self from Ango Abdullahi’s comments against Buhari’s re-election


Northern Elders Forum (NEF)’s leader, Prof. Ango Abdullahi

Secretary General of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Anthony Sani, yesterday dissociated the forum from comment by the Northern Elders Forum (NEF)’s leader, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, against the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Sani said Abdullahi was not in a position to speak on behalf of northern region against Buhari’s re-election in the forthcoming elections.

The ACF secretary stressed that some members of the NEF equally did not share in the Abdullahi’s position.


According to him: “We have nothing to do with the Northern Elders Forum because of its factions. Which faction are we going to talk about?”

It expressed concerns that NEF had passed a vote of no confidence on President Buhari and other northern leaders some months back.

But the ACF said kicking against his re-election and his alleged failed administration should be left for Nigerians to decide.

He said: “We are not a partisan organisation, it is not the consensus of our people to take partisan position. It is God who would use the masses/citizens of the country in making Buhari a president and we are not in position to decide for them.

“We are not part of NEF’s position against the re-election of Buhari, because not quite long ago, ACF dissociated itself from NEF’s communiqué for criticising Buhari and other northern Nigerian leaders.
