2015: Six Northern Groups Merge To Stop Jonathan’s Presidential Ambition
The plot by northern elders to ensure that President Goodluck Jonathan is defeated in the 20125 election and one of its own is elected the president thickened yesterday as no fewer than six northern groups have merged to checkmate the re-election of Jonathan ambition.
This merger of the six pro-northern groups was reportedly perfected in Kaduna last week.
Under the merger, the groups who share common interest as far as the 2105 election is concerned has accepted to retain their identities but to work as a team.
Secretary General of the Northern Elders’ Forum, Professor Ango Abdullahi, who confirmed the development, said that the move was deliberately initiated to bring the six groups under one umbrella for easy mobilisation and control as the race to the Villa gathers momentum.
He said: “We noted that all the groups, ranging from Arewa Consultative Forum to Northern Elders Forum and the Middle Belt Forum, have basically the same agenda.
“We, therefore, decided to harmonise opinions and to operate as members of a Joint Action Committee, JAC, with immediate effect.
“At any point in time a representative of JAC can report back to their groups with a view to ensuring that everyone is carried along in the new move that will ensure the return of the Presidency to the north.”
It will be recalled that no fewer than three northern groups converged on Kaduna last week and brainstormed on how best to wrestle power back to the region.
