According to him, “We called this conference because we believe we have to reinforce the northern position and that is; any Nigerian who wants the northerners to vote for him, should not just rely on where he comes from but should come to the north and convince northerners that he represents a better choice than a northerner and that he deserves our votes better.
“But, you cannot abuse us into supporting you or intimidate or blackmail us into supporting you.
“The northerners have the right to support the candidate they want and no one has a right to insist that if the northerners do not vote a southern candidate that there will be no peace in this country. You cannot do this.”
Reminded, that the issue of insecurity escalated in the north due to the refusal of northerners to cry out at the time it started, he said; “We have never been quiet. No one has been quiet. Our governments, both at the state and federal levels have failed us.
“The northern governors have tried as they do not have the means to deal with security and, we have not been quiet as the Northern Elders Forum has been consistent as we have said that the President has failed to protect the country and, we even demanded that the president resigns as many other people had said we were too strict but we said if he cannot protect Nigerians, he should resign.”
