Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the Northern Elders’ Forum (NEF) said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has failed to adequately secure northern Nigeria.

The forum in a statement, on Monday, November 23, accused the administration of lacking care for the people of the north.

A spokesperson for the NEF, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, faulted the Buhari government for the slow pace of the work on the Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano Highway. Baba-Ahmed said the forum recently discovered that the highway would take five years to complete.
