The Northern Elders’ Forum has warned Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) against issuing any threat over the presidency.
The forum said this while reacting to PANDEF’s statement that the north should wait till 2031 before producing another president.
The Director of Publicity and Advocacy of the Northern Elders’ Forum, Hakeem Baba Ahmed who spoke to newsmen however, stated that northerners shall not be threatened or intimidated by any group or region.
Ahmed insisted that the fundamental right of every citizen to elect a candidate of their choice and the rights of all political parties to choose candidates must be respected, irrespective of any threat from any group
He stated that the north was willing to sit down with anybody and discuss how these things can be done and advised PANDEF and other organizations to insist on a competent Nigerian who must run an inclusive administration that will integrate everybody into the process.
