Politics 2015:Power Shift to North not Negotiable—Northern leaders- The Nation

Northern Elders are not prepared to back down on the North’s demand for the presidency in 2015,spokesman for the group, Professor Ango Abdullahi has said.

“There is no going back on the presidency returning to the North in 2015, and that has remained our position,” he said on the outcome of the last weekend meeting of the Northern Elders Forum.

Professor Abdullahi accused the President of playing politics with the proposed national conference.

“As far as we are concerned, all this talk about national conference is political and geared towards 2015. It is also becoming clear that the only card on the table of Mr. President is ethnicity or religion. We are waiting to see how this will work in his favour,” he said.
