Ango Abdullahi is not speaking for us – Northern Elders Forum say

The leaders of the Northern Elders Forum NEF, have distanced themselves from the comments made by their spokesperson Abdullahi Ango, on the controversial ultimatum some Northern Youths gave to Igbos residing in the region. Ango at a press conference in Kaduna state yesterday, claimed the elders were in total support of the youths.

However the deputy chairman of NEF, Elder Paul Unongo, says Abdullahi is on his own in backing the ignorant youths.
“I am the Deputy Leader of the Northern Elders Forum and Ambassador Yusuf Maitama Sule is the leader. So, only the two of us can speak for the forum on sensitive matter like this. Therefore, if Professor Ango Abdullahi is backing those ignorant youths, then he is speaking for himself. We cannot support the nonsense those boys said. We fought civil war with our blood to keep Nigeria one. So, any Nigerian can live in any part of the country he feels like. Igbos are welcome in the North, they are welcome in Yoruba land and my own village in Tiv land and they have right to pursue their daily bread and own property. We couldn’t have killed three million people to keep Nigeria one and come back and allow these kids (the Northern Youth Groups) to insult our intelligence. We knew why we fought the war, we knew why we killed the people we loved. We knew why we made the sacrifice of three million men dead. So, Northern Elders Forum cannot take same position as those young men, if at all they took a position. So, if the young men cannot build a nation, they should not destroy the one we put our lives on the line to build for them. We cannot allow young men who did not fight the civil war with us to destroy our country, because Nigeria cannot afford another civil war,” he said.

Paul Unongo, you are an elder unlike Ango Abudullahi. There is a different between an elder and aged person. Not all aged people made it to be addressed as an elder

An elder doesn't scatter but builds. Paul Anongo is an elder

Mr. Long said...

Now a wise statements from a responsible wise elder. Unlike nonentity, tribalistic, inresponsible professor Ango. I wonder how he came about his professorship if he so illogical and inaccurate in his reasonings and statements. It will do well if he his quickly removed as spoke man of northern elders forum before he set the country ablaze.

Unongo has admitted that they killed at least three million Igbos

Internet News Freak said...

He should not get sentimental and wax lyrical with the death of million people in the Biafran war. What is that nonsense talk about them knowing why they killed those?
Those victims of that war are mothers, fathers and siblings of people. It is human blood that were shed,lives lost, hearts broken not ants and insects killed in their fucking sacrifice for Nigeria. I didn't like the sound of that, gosh man!

God spoke through Elder Paul Anongo, while the devil spoke through Aged Angola Abdullah. The difference is very clear

Like I said in an earlier post, I thought a lot of people were backing the ignorant kanu that has been shouting Biafra. Those that were around during the period have said NEVER AGAIN, yet fame seeking kanu and all other Ms thirsting for blood, you better calm the hell down.

The Stupidity of Nmamdi KANU and the IPOB youth should be check too. When Nmamdi KANU was calling Nigeria Zoo don't they have elders tame him? None of them came out to challenge him none of the governors from that region came out to debunk him. Is not by force to live together na!

The Igbos should pull out and then demand their freedom. They have complied with their directive and it also shows that Igbos are ready to face their destiny. It shows they have what it takes to be on their own. Unless all these clamor for Biafra is a fluke. If u are ready to live within your territory then pull out and damn the consequences. Do not do this one leg in and one leg out. It shows u are not ready.

If all Igbos leave the north, how will they fare??? Have they really thought about it? It's one thing to say something and another for that thing to happen and having to actually live with it. Illiteracy is really a bad thing, because that's the reason for all these!!!

Regardless of what you say, we know what the majority of the Hausa Fulani north want - to confiscate the Igbo's enormous and hard earned wealth and to cause a military take over to prevent an imminent Osinbajo presidency.
Two birds, one stone.
The middle belt may not be in support. The minorities may not concur but, when has any of that mattered to these blood sucking demons?

donduke said...

Truly great words from an elder but I expect same from the eastern region, what I think is the best is some kind of negotiations in this country!

There are just too many fools in the north that we can't deal with, many of them got to position of authority due to NEPOTISM which is the main reason the southerners are agitating for their independence. Elder Paul Anongo we can't take you serious because even your chairman from the core North as not dissociate Himself from the statement while you are just from Benue.

It easy to understand this game northerns are playing : this a trick from Northerners. Will can break up without war or threaten to fight. UK pull out from EU without war or fighting.

Yes, it is not by force to live together. That is why they are insisting on Republic of Biafra. Deal with it?!

You are calling Nnamdi KANU and IPOB's clamour for Biafra stupidity. What are your Shekau and his Boko Haram goons fighting for?

Ebifor Ebidou said...

I can't believe that this idiot called Prof (quota professor ) Ango Abdullahi was my VC at UNICAL. He was the worst VC and did not possess the charisma or intellectual capacity of his predecessor Prof Emmanuel Anyandele of blessed memory. He acted as a Mallam of cows at the University. Yeye tribal bigot.

See them, with their ever sentimental sense of reasoning. The man said 3M men (all Nigerians) & all ur brains could interprete it to be is "3million igbos". You're not different from the northern youths they're talking about. Always wanting to scatter, instead of applying ur hears to wisdom to build the nation.

Hmm as an Igbo person, I must commend this declaration. God bless you for being a voice of reason from the north. Boko Haram has not taught some Hausas der lesson. When they were killing only Christians it was fun to them until they started bombing mosques too. That's the same way they will wipe out the remaining of the north if they kill Igbos. Besides, any yoruba, calabar, Tiv,South South or any other tribe that decides to stay back because he is not Igbo will be doing himself a disservice because those guys are crazy. They will kill anybody that is not fulani that day. Worst is that there is no president to even do anything so they feel free to do anyhow that day but we dey here dey watch.
