The Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, on Tuesday insisted that Nigeria cannot survive without the input of the North.

Against this backdrop, the Chairman of ACF, Ibrahim Coomassie, said it was imperative for Northern leaders to save the region from activities that depicted it in a negative perspective.

Coomassie said this when the leadership of the foremost Northern women socio-cultural organisation, Jam’iyya Matan Arewa (JMA) visited ACF’s Secretariat.

The former Commissioner of Police also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to end the killing and kidnapping of women and children in the region.

He said, “We all know that without the North, Nigeria can never survive. We still stand by it. But now is the time to walk the talk in the interest of our people.

“Chibok girls are still missing. Now it has gone to Dapchi in Yobe State, what happened? Are we always going to be the victims?

“Boko Haram, see what they did to the Northeast. They have spread over to the North-central and even to the southern part of the country.

“Should we continue to be regarded on the negative side? No. We are leaders in our own right and we must exercise this responsibility for our people

“Whenever there is crisis, women and children are always the major victims. Enough is enough. We are proud that you have come forward to meet us to discuss this issue.”
