The northern Elders Forum has lamented was they described as the “Dangerous Situation” in the North.
One of the vibrant member of the Forum Dr Hakeem Ahmed, while speaking to newsmen at the venue of the northern governors meeting in Sir Kashim Ibrahim, Kaduna Government House said the northern communities were lost, as there seems to be no solution in sight.
According to him,” The governors are trying their best.
“The Federal Government are unable to protect northern communities.
“The governors are trying their best but they do not have control over police.
“People look up to the governors, while they in turn, ask what do you want us to do? We do not have authorities of the Federal Government.
“But it is not enough. Banditry, Kidnapping is getting worse.
” Kidnapping of school children is threatening education in the North. We have enough problem with poverty in the North.
