The member of the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, has warned against picking Senator Godswill Akpabio as the next Senate President.
Musa Saidu, who is the leader of the Arewa community in Southern Nigeria, warned that Akpabio’s emergence as Senate President would spell doom for Nigeria.
Saidu noted that no true Northerner would endorse Akpabio for the Senate Presidency.
He condemned Akpabio’s endorsement by a Northern coalition.
A statement by Saidu reads partly: “We hereby dissociate ourselves from the endorsement of Akpabio for the Senate Presidency by a coalition of Northern groups.
“No true Northern group will want to endorse Akpabio for a sensitive position like that of Senate President because he is not friendly with the North.
“We are the people who know Akpabio because we are resident in the South; we know those who are friendly with the Northern people, and Akpabio is actually not one of them.”
