Jare Ajayi, National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, has said that statements made by Hakeem Baba-Ahmed of Northern Elders Forum is undemocratic.
The Afenifere scribe told Daily Post that comments like this fuels secession agitators like Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho.
He called on President Muhammadu Buhari to call Baba-Ahmed to order.
According to Ajayi: “The North does not have the monopoly of who can govern this country well.
“The kind of governance we have in the past six years which would be eight in 2023 is not the kind we worked, prayed for or desired.
“What Baba-Ahmed is saying is undemocratic, unfair, and unfortunately, it’s that kind of posture that is responsible for those agitating to leave Nigeria.
“It’s unfair, we are using this opportunity to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to call Baba-Ahmed to order because what they are saying is fueling the ember of discord.
“This is not the kind of thing that would unify the country. It’s unfortunate that it’s coming from a person like him and he needs to be cautioned.”
