The Northern States Governors’ Forum (NSGF) has claimed that “diabolical influencers in form of hooliganism, ethno-religious bigots and even political marauders” are pushing for a regime change.
This was contained in a communique issued at the end of their emergency meeting in Kaduna on Thursday.
The governors urged Nigerians to resist “enemies of the nation” by supporting Buhari.
In the communique signed by the chairman of the forum and governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, it was noted that the forum discussed issues bordering on national security, particularly the #EndSARS protest which has resulted in the destruction of lives and properties across the country.
“The forum regrets the diabolical influencers in form of hooliganism, ethno-religious bigots and even political marauders who are bent on pulling the nation down its knees and pushing for regime change.
“The forum called on all Nigerians to resist these enemies of the nation by supporting Mr. President, the federal government and democracy at large,” it read in part.
It also appealed to “all citizens to restraint themselves from unwarranted disposition of sentiments, harassment and intimidation of other citizens resident in their home states.
“Forum notes that all these are antics of the enemies of the country who are violently pushing for regime change outside the ballot box.”
