Ango Abdullahi

The Chairman, Northern Elders Forum, Prof Ango Abdullahi has said Nigeria’s political situation was the major issue that dominated his discussion with former president Olusegun Obasanjo during the latter’s visit to Zaria, Kaduna State.

Speaking in an interview, the former Vice Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) explained that, “The first thing the former president said was ‘are we heading towards a new leadership that will take us out of the huge challenges bedevilling the country?’ Because there were divergent views on whether the nation is on the right track or not.”

Prof. Abdullahi stated that he and Obasanjo seemed to share the same view regarding the two major presidential flagbearers contesting for the apex seat of the nation, saying that they all felt that both Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar do not have what it takes to fix the challenges bedevilling the nation.

The Chairman of Northern Elders’ Forum explained that that had been his personal stance, and he still maintains it.

He stressing that it was borne out of the fact that he knew both of them too well, and going by their antecedents and track record of services, he doesn’t think they have what it takes to fix the challenges in the country.

Abdullahi observed that Nigerians may decide to go for an option elsewhere since there are 15 other candidates aspiring for the exalted seat.

Speaking on the stance of the Northern Elders’ Forum, the NEF chairman opined that the Northern region was more concerned on quality leadership irrespective of where it comes from.

Abdullahi, however, hoped that such quality leader would emerge from the North.

    Why didn’t Obasanjo deem it necessary to invite at least a Igbo leader to his meeting

    I am trying hard not to rain insults at the moment.
    Obasanjo had the chance to fix Nigeria for good but look where we are? Left post now and he is forming Sage and king maker.
    What annoys me is that these people will say they are coming together to select the best leader. They will select finish and it won’t be any better.
    Vision 2000. Failure
    Vision 2010. Failure
    Vision 2020. Failure .
    YAmayama people . I JUST WISH WE CAN ALL UTTER A SILENT PRAYER FOR ALL BAD NIGERIAN LEADERS TO KICK THE BUCKET and it should be real. Like just go Thanos on these people. They are hindering Nigeria’s growth big time.

    If you are among those that say Obasanjo did well by bringing GSM to Nigeria. Start today and perish that thought.
    Before nko? Sooner or later GSM would enter Nigeria na. We kukuma cant produce a phone, we only consume. GSM will get to us with or without OBJ. Who brought aeroplane to Nigeria. Who brought ATM to Nigeria? Who brought Radio and TV?
    Togo too should be celebrating Who brought GSM into the country then. Radarada! Perish that thought.

    If we didn’t create the Technology don’t say it was brought by anyone.
    Flutterwave was brought by a Nigerian youth .
