The Northern Elders Forum, NEF, urged the Southern Governors on Wednesday to be cautious in their decisions and statements.
The NEF’s spokesperson, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, confirmed this in light of the governors’ 10-point decisions reached after a meeting in Asaba.
Baba-Ahmed, who acknowledged that the nation was going through a difficult period, echoed the call for the interests of Northernern groups in the South to be protected in some way.
“The conference and its decisions are obviously significant events in the light of our present national circumstances. “Our Forum prefers to research developments of this kind with the care they require and to make its positions known.
“Our Forum prefers to study developments of this nature with the responsibility they deserve and make its positions known. “What we must say at this stage is that all leaders must exercise great caution in terms of their decisions and utterances
“It is tempting to pander to galleries, but leaders set the pace and direction. They do not follow.
“We should also renew our appeal that members of Northern communities living in the South, including Fulani, should not have their lawful rights abridged. “These are very trying times. We hope the President will read the import of the decisions of this meeting very carefully and respond appropriately,” he said
