Northern Elders Initiative Endorses Buhari For Second Term


Northern elders, under the aegis of the Northern Elders Initiative, led by Major General Paul Tarfa (Rtd) and the former governor of Sokoto State, Aliyu Wamakko, have endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term.

The elders under the initiative distanced themselves from the endorsement of Atiku Abubakar by the Professor Ango Abdullahi-led Northern Elders Forum last week.

Tarfa said, “After a long fruitful consultation with our members, from all parts of the North, we have unanimously decided to endorse President Muhammadu Buhari, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress as our choice in the forthcoming election.

“We have made this choice after a deep reflection of what Buhari stands for for Nigeria.”

Both members of the Northern Elders Forum and the Northern Elders Initiative belong to the Arewa Consultative Forum, which is a political and cultural association of Northers Elders formed in 2000.

  1. The northern elders have done the right thing by endorsing buhari for second tenure

  2. Buhari may win again no doubt about that because he is already getting all the support

  3. You did the good the good job for now, we hope you’ll also give counseling to him in later times

  4. there faces look like their brother Buhari, why wouldn’t they endorse him?

  5. whether they endorse him or not ,Buhari is already a failure

  6. They should be arrested for aiding and abbeting corruption
