The Presidency has taken a swipe at socio-cultural groups like the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, the Afenifere, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Pan Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, and leaders of other groups over their plot for the replacement of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration over perceived incompetence.

The leaders of the various socio-political organizations in the country had a summit in Abuja on Wednesday and resolved among others “to insist on the emergence of a visionary and dynamic leadership which will effectively deal with our security and economic challenges, and ensure good governance in the country,” saying: “It is imperative to revamp the security architecture of Nigeria.”

Present at the summit were North East Forum for Unity and Development, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) and New Generation Representatives (NGR). But the Presidency in a statement on Friday by the Senior Special Assistant on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja, said it considered the communiqué “issued by some ethnic and sectional groups assembled in Abuja recently as the shedding of crocodile tears by selfish leaders, who felt alienated after a transparent and accountable system halted their disproportionate survival on resources of the state.”
