The NEF Chairman who spoke at a book launch yesterday in Kaduna, added that North will participate in all electoral activities and respect Nigerians who respect the region.

“We will participate in all political and electoral activities as equals, and concerning other Nigerians who respect us. In the north, we consider attempts to create divisions and conflicts around religion as hostile acts.

“We have paid a high price in conflicts around religion in the North, and we do not need to do more. Our insecurity and collapsing economy do not discriminate between Christians and Muslims.

“We cannot seek solutions from them as Muslims or Christians. I have to state here that we are witnessing some of the crudest and most unproductive campaigns to create divisions between Hausa and Fulani people, and create distances between Christians and Muslims in the North.

“We warn that these contemptible attempts will fail because they find no support in history.

“The North will participate in all political and electoral activities as equals and with respect to other Nigerians who respect us.The North want leaders who will lead with integrity, competence, compassion and the fear of God.
