The Coalition of Northern Groups for Good Governance (CNGG) has warned politicians behind the recent killings and sponsored protests across the country to seize from their mission to destabilize Nigeria.
The group of about 35 CSOs and groups across the north said the youths are getting impatient with induced insecurities and partisan protests by those responsible for the carnage in the land.
Speaking through their President, Comrade Abu Mohammed in Abuja yesterday, the group said these partisan merchants of violence and killings are contracted to cause unrest, agonies and bloodshed in parts of the north.
According to the group, their mission is to claim power from the backdoor, as typified by their constant sermons for the sack of serving Service Chiefs.
After several failed attempts, the Northern youths revealed that they now resorted into discrediting President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration; blur the successes of the Service Chiefs to find public justification to compel Mr. President to sack his hard working and dedicated security team.
The group, however, warned these disgruntled politicians to quit their “devilish agenda”.
While throwing its weight behind the president, CNGG added that it is very much satisfied with the Service Chiefs, as a unified front is required to surmount the various security challenges.
He said, ‘’Let us quickly remind that the North and Nigeria is our collective heritage. It is very painful that some dubious characters are aligning with internal and external forces to destroy it. We are angered by this development and it will be a shame for our generation to bear this stigma and therefore, the imperative for caution.
‘’We thought with 2019 electioneering campaigns over; elections won and lost; some sanity would return to the self-acclaimed political godfathers of Nigeria. The renewed acts of armed banditry, killings and other horrendous atrocities, especially in parts of the North are not only induced, but politicized by disgruntled politicians and campaigners seeking to administer Nigeria from the backdoor, as typified by their constant sermons for the sack of serving Service Chiefs.
‘’Quite belatedly, we have realized, underestimated and improperly decoded the indignation and penchant of these forces for evil against us. They have marshalled a series of evil plots.
‘’After the instigated acts of insecurity, they also proceed to hire emergency and aberrant civil society sects for public protests in the prosecution of their Plan “B” in worsening insecurity in the country. Miscreants, hoodlums and social deviants under different guise are massively recruited to execute these plots.’’
