Tensions between the North and Southern part of Nigeria heightens as a Northern group known as The Coalition of Northern Groups, (CNG) has advised Northerners in the South to Leave the region.
The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, said it has lost confidence in the sincerity of the Federal Government to execute any positive initiative towards resolving the herders’ problems in the country.
The group also noted that there hasn’t been encouraging concern by the Federal government for the dilemma of the Fulani, who have been attacked in various states.
The CNG spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, while on a visit by the groups to the chairman, Northern Elders Forum, Prof. Ango Abdullahi said, “We find it difficult to trust the commitments of this government, which has for the past four years failed to execute any positive initiative towards resolving the herders problems nor shown any encouraging concern for the dilemma of the Fulani who have been attacked in various states.”
The group observed, “Based on the above observations sir, and the fact that the instigation of hatred against the Fulani persists, we feel obliged to advise the leadership of the Northern Elders Forum to consider calling on the Fulani to forego their right to live and flourish anywhere in the south and relocate to their various states in the north to ensure their safety.”
Speaking on the recent murder of Pa Fashoranti’s daughter, the groups noted that the failure or neglect of the police to trace a connection between the murder and the seeming prearranged conduct of Fani Kayode, Odumakin and Gani Adams by their haste to shift the blame in order to render the Fulani object of attack is certainly suspicious.
