Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) Officially Endorse Buhari For Re-election by odiks: 5:54pm On Feb 12
Barely four days to the presidential election, the apex northern sociocultural group, Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), has finally endorsed the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) President Muhammadu Buhari.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday at the headquarters of the forum in Kaduna shortly after a meeting held under the Chairmanship of Malam Adamu M.Fika, Chairman Board of Trustees of the forum, the forum resolved that “ACF believes that President Muhammadu Buhari deserves a second term to consolidate on his achievements”.


The text of the briefing which was read by Alhaji Musa Liman Kwande Ag. Chairman NEC reads in parts; “ACF takes note of the state of the political situation as the nation goes into another round of elections, where tensions are heightened as a result of intense campaigns, lobbying and horse-trading among political actors.

“ACF takes special note that major political parties have nominated prominent northerners, for the February 16th 2019 Presidential Elections. The Forum has carefully studied the antecedents of major presidential candidates, the manifestoes and policy documents of their parties, alongside the need for social, political and economic stability in the country.

“ACF is therefore, of the view that certain attributes such as clarity of thought, unity of purpose, content of character and morality of the candidates, their leadership qualities, performance and general acceptability of the candidates contesting for not only the office of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria but also for other elective offices should guide voters in making their choices”.


The decision on who to elect should not be based on any form of inducements, mob hysteria, intimidation or false promises, but by calm and deliberate consideration of the candidates’ qualities of leadership, performance and moral standing in their public and private lives.

Furthermore, other considerations such as capacity to tackle security challenges, fight corruption, and boost the economy by way of diversification away from over dependence on oil, by infrastructural development in order to promote growth. The integrity of the candidate to raise the image of Nigeria in the comity of nations is equally important in the election.


“ACF notes, the strides taken by the Buhari administration to improve and reposition the nation economically. A few examples are: The multi-billion Dollar Mambilla hydro power project, the exploration of oil in Gongola Basin of the Benue trough, the Baro inland port, the North East Development Commission, the ongoing rail line projects nationwide, and other critical infrastructural development projects
.

“Consequent upon the contributions of the incumbent government to the economic and infrastructural development of the nation, and the government’s achievements in combating insurgency and other insecurity problems bedeviling the country, ACF believes that President Muhammadu Buhari deserves a second term to consolidate on his achievements”.


ACF also called on the politicians and their supporters as well as the electorates to avoid all forms of violence before, during and after the elections, stressing that violence is never a solution to any grievances.

“Violence not only destroys our democratic process but also lives and property. Democracy is a contest of ideas and reasons” it further stressed.

ACF also urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to live up its promise and assurances for a credible, free and fair elections.

The forum equally called on the Police and other security agencies involved in providing security to the election process to remain neutral and professional in their conduct.


Those who attended the meeting were Alh. Adamu Fika, Board of Trustee (BoT), Gen I. M Wushishi Chairman ACF leadership selection Committee, Alh. Musa Liman Kwande, Ag Chairman, Ambassador Adamu Muhammad, Deputy Chairman BoT, Senator Abubakar H. Girei Vice Chairman NEC, Anthony N .Z Sani Secretary General, Engr Abubakar G. Umar Deputy Secretary General and Alh. Muhammad Ibrahim National Publicity Secretary.

Buhari as an object have failed.
WE say no to any useless cabal.
WE say no to regional miopic mind set.
WE say no to suffering and smiling.Atiku understands the value of a good life. He knows YOU cannot truly be happy if you can’t pay your bills. He knows you can’t be fulfilled if you can’t take care of your own kids. Atiku has more than 20 businesses, and over half of that is just welfarism/charity based businesses. What he does, is take from lucrative businesses to subsidize not too lucrative ones. At the end of the month, all the staff gets paid and everyone is happy with their families. I know as the President of Nigeria, Atiku would be able to do this for all. This is Atiku. That is what I am supporting. Can you tell me about who you are supporting and how his character and attitude would help me in life? While you do, do not forget Atiku has never handled any budget.
Vote PDP!! vote Atiku/Obi 2019 !! Vote A sound Man!!

Many people never expected Atiku to clinch the ticket, but yes he did clinched the ticket and even went on to win with a very large margin. The victory of Atiku sent a very big discomfort to the camp of the APC because of various reasons. To add injury to salt, the hope of the APC that the PDP candidates would disintegrate after the primaries sent a more serious confusion seeing that the PDP presidential candidates decided to bury whatever the outcome was at the presidential primary and to support each other.
Ever since Atiku clinching the PDP ticket, the APC have been jittering, even more was the news that Atiku was to be given a US visa after reconciling with Obasanjo, his former boss. I think the APC must have seen what many Nigerians have not yet seen and have been scheming very well in other to remain in power.
First they have believed that the President would win overwhelmingly in the North West, and that he would have to battle for other regions with Atiku. However, with the increasing love to get Nigeria Working again, the APC are embarrassed to see the North West giving so much support to Atiku. This has unsettled the presidency who are now looking for any means possible to make sure they retain power. The appointment of Amina Zarkari is another pointer that the President is not lying low in their bit to retain power a move which has been criticized by many Nigerians.
I think a government campaigning for another term would have been doing so with achievements.

Buhari’s asset declaration fraud is more damning than Onnoghen's, yet it is Onnoghen who has been illegally “suspended” and pilloried in the media.Buhari is a double-dyed scammer who should be in jail.
First, it was Buhari who voluntarily said he would publicly declare his assets. The Punch of February 20, 2015 reported him to have said: “I pledge to PUBLICLY declare my assets and liabilities, encourage all my appointees to publicity declare their assets and liabilities as a pre-condition for appointment.” However, several months after getting into power, he refused to declare his assets publicly.

Re: Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) Officially Endorse Buhari For Re-election by SaiATKUOBI2019: 6:18pm On Feb 12
the road to Jonathan's Village (Otuoke, in Ogbai LGA) isn't actually a federal government road. Its the responsibility of the state government, which is in PDP.
So how can the president construct a road that isn't a federal government road, when there are thousands of federal government roads seeking for attention.
I was in Otuoke a few years back and I didn't notice any road construction. I however comfirmed from a friend that the news making rounds is actually the dualization of the Yenagoa road (This is a story for another day).
These are cheap lies by APC.
Its just like Fashola claiming to be building a road to Obasanjo's Home, while he is working on Lagos-Ogun road.
Is Lagos-Ogun the road to OBJ's home?
This is just a mere campaign talk and nothing more.
