Whatsapp News

The Northern Elders Forum has accused the Presidency of scaring Nigerians with the rhetoric of subversion with its continuous claim of an alleged attempt to overthrow President Muhammadu Buhari.

Director of Publicity and Advocacy of the Forum, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed a statement he released, asked the Presidency what wants Nigerians to do with such information.

Challenging the Presidency to mention the plotters claimed were recruiting some leaders of and the alleged ethnic groups, Ahmed told the current administration to deal with the problems facing the country as it is already showing it can’t use the mechanism available to it to deal with the situation.

He Said;

“Subversion is a crime, sedition is a crime and treason is a crime. Why is the Presidency or DSS telling us that there are people who are involved these activities? What do they want the to do with the information? They are failing twice; first of all, they are failing to eliminate the ground which gives these kinds of elements if they do exist, the reason to do what they are doing and then they are failing enforcing the law.

“I can we talk with other groups, we discuss national issues. That is our right; there is nothing illegal that and I am sure other groups do the same thing. But when you throw this kind of blanket accusations that somebody that you haven’t told us, someone, that you are in opposition today with, you haven’t dealt with is engaging and recruiting sociocultural groups, you have to wonder are you just using words to scare citizens?”
