Rejecting The Nat’l Conference Report Is Deceitful By Northern Leaders Says Arewa



The rejection of the implementation of the 2014 report of the National Conference convoked by former President Goodluck Jonathan by Northern Leaders is being condemned by Arewa Consultative Forum and the Afenifere.

The National President of the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, Alhaji Yerima Shettima described the action as deceitful in his reaction.

Shettima said: “They (northern leaders) must take responsibility because in the first place, some of us were against the conference. Why did they participate in the conference when they know they will reject the recommendations of the report? They cannot attend the conference at the expense of taxpayers and thereafter distance themselves from the conference? I see that as deceit, they must take responsibility.”

For the Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, said it was not disturbed by the rejection saying it wishes the Northern leaders the best.

Afenifere’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yinka Odumakin said: “Those of us who are pushing for the restructuring of Nigeria were trying to save Nigeria from the terminal crisis. If they think they can sustain Nigeria as it is, on what basis is that? Nobody is begging that Nigeria should be restructured any more, what will restructure Nigeria is already here. We wish them the best and see how all this goes. It does not come as a surprise to us, we are not worried at all.”
