Call Atiku To Order–Ex-Militants Warn Northerners

September 11, 2013

The Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, an interest group of the Northerners, has been warned by some ex-militant commanders in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria to call former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to order over his alleged plot to rob President Goodluck Jonathan of his second term in office come 2015.
In a statement released on Tuesday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, the group, under the umbrella of Leadership, Peace and Cultural Development Initiative, advised Atiku to stay off Jonathan’s way in order for him (Jonathan) to focus on governing Nigeria diligently.
The group further stated that they will stop any move by Atiku to frustrate Jonathan’s speculated second term ambition in 2015.
Speaking through its spokesman, General Reuben Wilson, the ex-militants accused Atiku of destabilizing Nigeria and warned him and his “power hungry Northerners to leave Jonathan alone.”
“Jonathan has been in office for just two years and they have done everything possible to make sure he does not concentrate on developing the country. The ACF should not provoke us. Where were they when their son, Muhammadu Buhari promised hell for Jonathan?” the group asked.
They further queried that, “all this while that the Boko Haram warlords have been killing and maiming our people in the North, where was ACF? Why have they not called Baraje and Atiku to order? Why can’t they talk to their children to leave Jonathan alone?”
The group maintained that, “this country will remain together and Jonathan will be re-elected in 2015,” adding that, “when the North held sway for over three decades, they had the support of the South.”
