Yesterday in Abuja, Arewa Elder called on GEJ to defuse political tension in the country by renouncing any intention he might have to stand for re-election in 2015.
Speaking on behalf of ACF, Alhaji Ahmed Joda who served as permanent secretary in the 1970s, advised the President to publicly announce that he won’t go for it so as to dampen political tension created by the suspense over his candidacy.C
“(The) President should defuse the present political tension that now pervades the country.
This should begin with his renouncing any intention he may have of contesting the 2015 elections and devoting his entire time, energy and the resources of the country in order to give Nigeria a credible and acceptable Constitution; a free, transparent and fair election,” he said in a statement in Abuja.
Jona, a former chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission during the tenure of then-President Olusegun Obasanjo, said also that Jonathan “should restructure his cabinet; appoint more credible people; complete his present mandate to continue the work of governing the country to preside over a free, fair and transparent general election in 2015 and step aside”
It is apparent that the only tension that has overwhelmed Nigerians is the fear of being attacked by Boko Haram.
If Arewa consultative forum is calling for the withdrawal of GEJ’s candidacy come 2015, will they now call their boys to order?
Is ACF BEHIND BOKO HARAM? More explanation is needed here.
