ACF fires back at Nwabueze over attack on Buhari

The Arewa Consultative Forum, has slammed the Chairman of The Patriots, Prof. Ben Nwabueze, for alleging that President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war as aimed at Islamising Nigeria.

Nwabueze had reportedly said the appointment of northerners as heads of major security agencies and other strategic positions, including the military, police, customs, secret service, among others, was part of the President’s alleged northernisation agenda.

Reacting to Nwabueze’s claim, Secretary General of the forum, Anthony Sani, said Buhari may have his shortcomings, but means well in trying to ensure order, justice, liberty, peace and prosperity in the country.

Sani said “a Nigerian of Nwabueze’s status” must refrain from dwelling on issues that could divide the country.”

The ACF scribe noted that in democracy, there is need for opposition, but critics must be constructive for the country to move forward.

Sani said, “I do not believe the respected professor can make such claims, considering the chiefs of defence staff and naval staff are not Muslims.”
