ACF to Politicians guard your ulterances for Peaceful coexistence.

By Abdullahi Alhassan Kaduna.

The Arewa consultative Forum,ACF, has called on the Politicians to decease from using abusive word during before and after elections,they also called on the Academic Staff Union of Nigerian University,ASUU to shift ground,

In a Communique signed  issued at the end of its National Executive Council meeting held in kaduna, by it's Secretary General,Mallam Murtala Aliyu, read in part,

"ACF advises politicians to play politics by the rule. They must guard their utterances and everything possible to avoid heating up the polity.

 "Campaigns should be issue-based. It has been observed that there is already a voter apathy. Sectarian and divisive issues must be avoided at all cost in order to further discourage rational voters from exercising their civic rights.

 "Nigeria must be safe and stable for any meaningful progress to be achieved and for the winner, who ever he may be to give leadership. 

"It is in this regard that the ACF together with other Northern groups arrange to meet with various Presidential candidates to know their policies towards uniting and developing the entire country.

" ACF also enjoins the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a proper and transparent elections by maintaining and even surpassing their current records. The government on its part, together with other development partners must provide adequate and timely resources to achieve this.

" The ACF is sadden by the protracted and unresolved dispute between the Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities (ASUU) and the Federal Government. To resolve the dispute, the parties must have the interest of education and the future of our children and the nation at heart.

"ACF advises the Government to shift ground while emphatically asking the ASUU members to show sympathy for the future of the students and consider offers made by Government and respect the rule of law.

"The ACF observed that except the Local Governments are made to be functional our development outcome will remained dismay. 

"Youth and able bodied men and women migrate from Local Government Areas to the cities due to lack of functional Local Government Administrations escalating insecurity such as kidnapping, armed robbery and the like. 

ACF calls on the political leadership of the country to ensure that the LGA administrations work. This is the only way democracy can be sustained.

"The ACF commends the efforts of the Federal and States governments and of course the Security Agencies for scaling down the level of insecurity in most parts of the country especially in the North where insecurity had taken an alarming proportion.

 They However,lament the  incidences of attacks on villages and highways and kidnappings in states of the Northwest/Northeast and parts of North-central are still happening which are worrisome.

 "We call on the Security Agencies to revisit their strategy to root out these insurgents and terrorists to ensure and restore permanent peace to the land. The appeal also goes to the members of the media to be mindful of the information they dish out to the public.

" The flooding covering substantial parts of the North especially the flood plains of Jigawa, Kogi and Niger states and to some lesser extent other states of North and the country at large are disturbing. Lives have been lost while the survivors have lost their habitats, other belongings and in most cases their farm produce to the floods. 

"We Governments at all levels must come to the aid of those affected immediately and substantially. Global warming, which is the major course of the unprecedented flooding has caused devastating effects to our food security as a nation.

 The Sociocultural Northern organization called on Federal and States Government should put in place the mechanism and appropriate infrastructure to control further damages and destruction of property and provide adequate relief to the victims.

ACF commended the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency the ACF has observed with the light recent performance of the national drugs law enforcement agency (NDLEA), that has already led to The exposure and arrest of leading drugs traffickers. 

While we urge the NDLEA not to relent in it efforts, we wish to remind similar law enforcement agencies to emulate these performance.
