‘Northern governor planning to subvert govt’

A FRONTLINE northern organisation, the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG), has alleged that a sitting governor from the Northwest is masterminding a North’s version of the #RevolutionNow, led by detained Sahara Reporter publisher Omoyele Sowore.

The coalition explained that unlike the botched #RevolutionNow, the proposed northern version is only aimed at promoting a mischievous 2023 political agenda of certain northern politicians. In a statement yesterday in Kaduna, the Coalition of Northern Groups advised the governor to shelve his planned protest or be exposed.

The statement by the coalition’s spokesman Abdul-Azeez Suleiman said the planned agitations and disturbances are part of a wider agenda to destabilise the polity. It added that this would cause a change of structure in the Presidency to suit the plan of the governor, by whatever means and tactics.

CNG said: “Our attention was called to trending reports that a certain fake, fringe and obscure Joint Northern Action Front is mobilising the North to revive the violent and counterproductive #RevolutionNow in northern parts of the country.

“The #RevolutionNow was politely rejected by the North in view of its pronounced sinister intention of forcefully overthrowing the current democratic government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
