Nass Invasion: Arewa Consultative Forum Berates Siege
The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has berated the recent invasion of the National Assembly Complex by masked operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).
The ACF said this yesterday in a communiqué signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Muhammad Ibrahim Biu, after its National Executive Council (NEC) quarterly meeting held in Kaduna presided by the Acting Chairman, Alhaji Musa Liman Kwande, and attended by NEC members from the 19 northern states and FCT.
The Forum, which lauded the actions taken so far by the Federal Government, urged it to thoroughly investigate the immediate and remote causes of the invasion by DSS personnel to unveil the truth and sanction all those found culpable, no matter their status.
It noted that because punitive measure was never taken against those involved in similar episodes in the past, it has encouraged the DSS to do what it recently did.”
The apex socio-political group from the North, which expressed serious concern over the lingering crisis between the Executive and the Legislature on issues of good governance, appealed to both to sheath their swords and put the interest of the nation above all other pecuniary considerations.
