The Coalition of Northern Groups for Good Governance (CNGG) on Sunday, June 21, warned politicians behind the recent killings and sponsored protests across the country to seize from their mission to destabilize Nigeria.
The group made up of about 35 civil society organisations 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 at a press conference in Abuja, the president of the coalition, Abu Mohammed, 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.
The northern youths revealed that the paid individuals have now resorted into discrediting the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and to hide the successes of the service chiefs.
The group further warned the alleged 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.
Mohammed said it has also become clear to the group that these individuals scheme to throw the country into total chaos and lawlessness by sponsoring violence, killings and at the same time, inducing youths to embark on protests against the country’s leadership.
He said: "The manner of the latest protests baffled infinitely, youths were sighted freely mingling in the season of Covid-19 in total disregard for social-distancing protocols and the deliberate refusal to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as face masks and so forth."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that some northern elders led by a former Senate president, Ameh Ebute, has condemned the attack on President Buhari by some elites in the region.
Ebute said contrary to claims by some northern elites over the insecurity in the region, there has been a significant turnaround in the fight against insurgency in the north.
The call by these elders followed an attack on the president by some stakeholders in the region led by Professor Ango Abdullahi.
Ango who is the chairman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) said President Muhammadu Buhari as failed as a leader in the area of Nigeria's security.
He also said that President Buhari appears helpless in finding solutions to insecurity as well as poverty in the country.
