Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district has kicked against the attack launched on
Prof. Ango Abdullahi-led Northern Elders’ Forum, NEF, by the presidency.

The Northern Elders Forum, NEF, led by a former Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ango Abdullahi had over the weekend described the current administration as a failure.

NEF, angered by the spate of insecurity leading to incessant killings, kidnapping and banditry, said it warned Nigerians before the 2019 general elections that President Muhammadu Buhari had nothing to offer them.

Despite several calls by Nigerians for the change of tactics in the fight against insurgency and other criminalities, President Buhari has refused to change his service chiefs who are overdue for retirement.

But reacting, Femi Adesina, Buhari’s Spokesman described the forum as a one-man business.

He was quoted as saying, “But the truth is that NEF is just Ango Abdullahi, and Ango Abdullahi is NEF. It is a quasi-organization that boasts of no credible membership, and its leader is akin to a General without troops.”

However, reacting on Monday, Shehu Sani on Twitter urged the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration to accept ‘NEF’s truth.

He said, ”Attack on Northern Elders is allergy to truth. If Professor Ango Abdullahi is a General without a troop,the ones with troops are unable to save us from the menace of kidnappings & killings.

”The Govt embrace the bitter, uncomfortable & inconvenient truth of the elders & make amends.”
