The Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, has urged Nigerians not to divert attention from the issues raised by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, in his 18-page letter to President Goodluck Jonathan so as not to lose focus on the matter.
It was made known by the National Publicity Secretary of ACF, Mr Anthony Sani. According to him, diverting attention from the problems described in the letter could generate more heat than light in the polity, hence the need for decorum and patriotism over the issues.
In his reaction to the call for the impeachment of Jonathan by the opposition All Progressive Congress, APC, based on the letter-related issues, Sani said,
"I have already reacted to the media that even though one of the issues in the letter borders on security, most of the issues raised were common place knowledge.
"More so, that the issues are still at the level of allegations. In any case, there are due procedure for impeachment of a president that are well known to the legislature whose job includes the task of impeachment."
