CCNG Passes Vote of Confidence on President Tinubu Amid Criticism


The Coalition of Concerned Northern Groups (CCNG) has expressed unwavering support for President Ahmed Tinubu’s leadership. The group rebuked the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) for its critical remarks, labeling them as misguided and unfortunate.

CCNG’s president, Muhammad Ibrahim, emphasized the misrepresentation of President Bola Ahmad Tinubu in NEF’s statement, calling it ill-fated. The group’s stance underscores a significant shift in the political landscape as Tinubu’s leadership continues to draw both praise and scrutiny.

Responding to claims by NEF, Mohammad said, “We wish to draw the attention of the NEF that it is a very unwise move for it to engage in such a slander especially now that the hard work of the President is seen by Nigerians to be manifesting practically.

“Was it not during the Buhari regime that the banditry became more prominent in the Northwest, a situation that has virtually killed the farming profession in the region and destroyed lives and property? Yet the NEF never rose against that.

“We are hardly two years into this regime which started on a very difficult footing with many things to be put right after being detracted by the immediate past regime.

“Hence, it is unbecoming as elders to demonise this regime instead of giving it the benefit of the doubt

“Reviewing the NEF claims that they mobilised the north in favour of President Tinubu, even as his major contender, Atiku Abubakar was a northerner, cannot be substantiated because they have no such influence over the electorate in the region
