The leadership and members of the Northern Elders, Professionals and Stakeholders’ Forum (NEPSF) have faulted the recent call for the sack of service chiefs by the pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere.
The group asked Buhari to ignore the recent call, saying that some political enemies have infiltrated their midst.
National President of the group,Chief Simon Shango in a communique after a stakeholders’ meeting condoled with President Buhari over the recent killing of some soldiers in Melete, Borno State.
Shango, a former editor of Daily Times Newspapers and Publicity Secretary of NPN lauded Buhari for his efforts in restoring peace to the nation.
“There is no doubt that these soldiers died for us to live and we are optimistic that the supreme price they paid for Nigerians and our fatherland would not go in vain. As we mourn their sudden passage to eternity, we pray Almighty God to grant their gentle souls peaceful rest in His bosom, as well as comfort the nation.
“Sir, we consider it another rare compelling reason for us to scribble these few lines to you. Though, you are still in mourning mood, but we are also stimulated by the prevailing tragedy which befell the nation to empathise with you.
“It is completely unnecessary to repeat what is already known to you and millions of Nigerians. But for the sake of emphasis, let us remind you about some of the issues which have already come to your attention”, he said.
