Insecurity: North-Central breaks away from ACF, announces new group

Prominent leaders from the North-Central geopolitical zone have announced their exit from the Arewa Consultative Forum, citing the worsening insecurity in northern Nigeria.

The leaders announced the formation of the North Central Peoples Forum as a platform to fight insecurity and marginalisation.

Addressing journalists in Abuja on Wednesday, the group said in spite of the abundant mineral and human resources in the zone, the North-Central was bedevilled by vices, like kidnapping, banditry and other forms of criminality.

The ACF currently has as its Chairman, the immediate-past Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh, who is from the North Central zone.

The new North-Central group is being led by a former Minister of State for Health, Gabriel Aduku, who is the interim chairman.

A former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Senator Jerry Useni, Ibrahim Mantu, a former Military Administrator of Kwara State, Col. David Bamigboye (retd.), and a former deputy chief of staff to the President, Chief Olusola Akomode, were also listed as members.

The list also included the Publisher of Leadership Newspaper, Sam Nda-Isaiah, a former Nigeria Ambassador to South Africa, Ahmed Ibeto, a media consultant, Alhaji Tajudeen Kareem, a former Deputy Governor of Benue State, Chief Stephen Lawani and Alhaji Alfa Mohammed, among others.

Useni told journalists that the existence of similar groups in other parts of the country had given rise to group affinity and solidarity among the states in a particular geopolitical zone to canvass things of common interest.

He expressed confidence that the forum would unite the people of Benue, Kogi, Kwara, Nasarawa, Niger, Plateau and the Federal Capital Territory in their quest to ensure that peace and stability was established and sustained within the zone.

He added that the forum would pursue rapid industrialisation across all nooks and crannies of the zone.

He said the group would pursue policies and process that would ensure that the massive solid mineral and agricultural endowments were adequately harnessed.

He said, “The forum is also aimed at ensuring cooperation and support for the good policies and administration of the six governors of the zone, irrespective of our political, religious and ethnic differences.

“We will support and cooperate fully with the Federal Government for full and complete implementation of infrastructures, development projects situated in the zone and the involvement of the people of the zone in the national affairs of the country.

“We will promote, defend and strengthen North Central unity and the interest of its people in the context of one indivisible Nigeria and to contribute to the safeguarding of her territorial integrity.

“Consequently, every zone now has a common socio-political platform where they meet to discuss their strength and weakness with the view to propounding and promoting progress and development of the zone.”

Remove north from the appellation and you will be fine.
Something like south central, middle belt, or central states.

Your objective should be to break away from Nigeria

One would think they'll be bold enough to remove 'North' from their name to show their displeasure... something like 'Middle Belt People's Forum' would have sounded better undecided

This is long over due. The greater north (nw and ne) see the north central as a conquered territory. Let everyone bear his/father's name.

You are very smart. These ones are still stooges and puppets... They will prevent the real voice of middle-belt from being heard.

Let me make some revelations because some of us also have our own intelligence networks. I have met with some of the bandits, we have met with some of their high commanders. One or two who have repented. They have sat down with us, not once, not twice.

They told us that one of the northern governors is the commander of Boko Haram in Nigeria. Boko Haram and the Bandits are one and the same thing. They have a sophisticated network. during this lockdown their Planes were moving up and down as though there was no lock down. Moving ammunition, money, logistics and distributing them in different part of the country. They are already in the south. In the rain forest of the south. They are everywhere. They told us that when they finish this rural killings, they will move to phase 2.

In the Phase 2, they will go into the urban cities, going from house to house killing prominent people. I can tell you, this is the game plan. By 2022, they want to start a civil war in Nigeria. Don't joke with what I am saying you. I have a PHD from Oxford university. I am a central banker, we don't talk nonsense. So don't joke with what I am telling you. --- Obadiah Mailafia

Northern Nigeria is like that black sheep of the family nobody likes but have no choice but to tolerate.




Have always been in power, hold majority of the political posts in the country, have majority of the richest individuals in the country and yet the poorest and least educated.



Cut off the North and watch the rest of Nigeria develop at an astronomical pace.

Good morning to the Middle belt.

The stupid fossil of single North is finally falling off their eyes.

Kill that 'single North' hoax and Nigeria will set sail on the direction to being recovered from Fulani marauders who manipulate the middle belt only for electoral purposes.

Good morning once again, North Central! That's if there's no counter to this news by evening. Those cowards can piss in their pants if the Fulanis sneeze.

But let's believe they've finally grown balls like Ortom.

Thats the way to go

Buhari is not a unifier.... He is a destroyer
A tribalistic fool

How yoruba muslims still chant sai barber baffles me... In the face of injustice ..
incompetency and corruption everywhere... OmG

How can yoruba muslims still support this administration... How much are they buying fuel and food stuffs... Can somebody please investigate... These are the same people that took over ojota when jonathan increased it to 140... Iam not following again..

Is it not the same middle belt that joined the north to fight Igbos in the sixties.... Well... A child cannot see what an elder saw even when he climbs an iroko tree...
There is a price for shortsightedness and sheer stupidity...
