“The leaders, who include Anthony Sani, immediate past Secretary General of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Yerima Shettima, President, Arewa Youths Consultative Forum and Prof. Usman Yusuf, former chief executive of Nigerian Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), accused the nonagenarian of political mischief, noting that his statement was capable of promoting ethno-religious crisis in the country.

He said Northern leaders should be reminded that the era of a section of the country seeing itself as “born-to-rule, which has manifested in the uncontrollable criminal activities in some parts of the country, was over.
