Thus, the statement credited to NEF does not reflect the position of the Forum as it has never sat and assessed performance or non-performance of Tinubu administration.

Similarly, NEF has never discussed, in any time, the politics of 2027 nor has it deliberated on who to support or not to support on such issues.

The NEF considers it too early to be engaged in such distractions when NEF, like most Nigerians, are demanding good governance and dividends of democracy.

NEF, for now prefers to, focus on advocating for what improves the northern region and Nigeria as a whole.

In conclusion, the NEF charges leaders to always verify and authenticate information and treat issues within their specific contexts before making public pronouncement.”
