The acting chairman of Arewa Consultative Forum, (ACF), Musa Liman Kwande has said Northerners would vote for a northerner presidential candidate to take over from Muhammadu Buhari irrespective of the party he belongs.

Kwande, who said this on Sunday in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital, noted that he was only expressing his opinion as a full-fledged Northerner and a citizen of Nigeria and not that of ACF.

“Northern Nigerians who are tested and trusted should contest for any political office with anybody from any part of Nigeria, and the people should exercise their democratic franchise to vote for their candidate of choice.”

While noting that ACF and Northern Elders Forum, (NEF) are all pressure groups striving for the development of northern Nigeria in particular and Nigeria in general, just like Afenifere, Ohaneze Ndi Igbo and others in the South-South region, Kwande who is the Baraden -generalismo- of Lafia in Nasarawa state, however, call on Northerners to strive towards developing the region by voting for people who are pro-development and not those who are self-centered.

“Nigeria is our country; we must unite and develop it despite being from different geographical locations. We should not relent in the pursuit of growth and development as we are blessed with gifted people and many resources, as only Nigerians would develop the country to greater heights.”

He also called on Nigerians to embrace peace and dialogue and denounce violence, which he said is against democratic norms and a treat to the federation.
