YOU ARE MERE IRRITANT, FEATHER WEIGHT – PRESIDENCY TO NORTHERN ELDERS


You are mere irritant, feather weight – Presidency to Northern elders

The Presidency has launched a scathing attack on the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), insisting that the organisation is a General without a troop.

Recall that in a statement, on Sunday, signed by its Chairman, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, NEF said that the insecurity in some northern states of the country was an indication that President Muhammadu Buhari and the governors of those states have lost control over the protection of the people which is a constitutional duty.

But in a counter statement signed by Femi Adesina, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, the Presidency said it was not surprised by the latest statement by Prof. Abdullahi, insisting that its past position on what the NEF represents remains unchanged: “a mere irritant and featherweight.”

“The former vice chancellor signed the statement under the banner of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF). Hearing that title, you would think the body was a conglomeration of true elders. 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,” Adesina said.

The Presidency recalled that before the last presidential election, the organization, which it described as a one-man army, had “shown its antipathy against President Buhari, and its preference for another candidate. They all got beaten together.”

The Presidency in the statement said that Prof. Ango Abdullahi-led NEF was merely waving a flag that is at half-mast.

It said that President Buhari “steadily and steadfastly focuses on the task of retooling Nigeria, and discerning Nigerians know the true state of the nation. They don’t need a paper tiger to tell them anything.”
