It’s Too Early To Threaten Nigerians With  2027 Elections,  Hayab Cautions  Northern Elders Forum 



The immediate past  Chairman of the Kaduna state chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. John Joseph Hayab, has noted with concern that it is too early for Northern Elders Forum (NEF) to threaten Nigerians with the 2027 election.

He expressed this  in a statement on Friday saying, “It is sad to read that some members of NEF are saying North will not vote for Tinubu in the next election in 2027.”

He added, “As a stakeholder, I find this call coming at the wrong time and it lacks good reasoning. The speed at which our Naira is improving against dollars, shows Tinubu is doing better than our almighty Buhari.”

He further explained that the speed at which Nigerians got the Kuriga school children from Kaduna  State back is a huge progress in handling insecurity compared to how innocent parents suffer when Bethel Baptist school children and others were kidnapped and it took a long time before affected parents after paying millions of naira as ransom for the children to regained their freedom.

He advised, “NEF should instead seek ways to collaborate with this government to find solutions to insecurity, hunger, improved economy and making our currency add value for the overall progress and development of the country.

“Threatening the government with no vote in 2027 shows they may not have a good heart for the progress of the country but are only interested in what they will benefit.”

He challenged groups like NEF to use their  groups to support and challenge their leaders or government authorities to make the country great and a better place for all Nigerians.

“Let us not bring issues that have no basics at this time for the progress of our land. We need elders that will help unite the country, offer useful advice that will help the nation not coming up with provocative statements that will only provoke other regions to start making statements that will further bring division and  confusion in the country,” he further advised.

According  to Hayab, what the country needs now is uniting the people to find concrete solutions to the many problems confronting the country Nigeria and put good effort to proffering solutions and consolidate on the gains so far made not politics of voting in 2027 since none of us knows how and who will be alive to context or vote  in 2027.
