The Coalition of Northern Groups has said it regrets voting for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.
The group lamented through its spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Sulieman.
He said this at the sensitisation and awareness conference organised by CNG on Wednesday in Kaduna.
Sulieman said, “The North has been abandoned to a critical security situation with its widowed women, children orphaned, youths maimed and killed and people displaced in thousands. Politicians and leaders we have elected have prospered, but the bulk of us are left jobless, homeless, helpless and hopeless.
“The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. And while these elites celebrate with their families in world capitals, there has been nothing to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
“Indeed, the north made a mistake in 2015 so that the deliberate commission or omission of the people we trusted with power has inadvertently isolated the region politically, economically and socially as a result of which, the once portent and progressive region is today begging not only for food but for a place in the nation’s future political arrangement.”
Speaking further, he gave the assurance that 2023 election will be special because what now matters to people is not the person or party in power but whether the government is controlled by the people.
He stated that since voting with religious, ethnic and sectional sentiments had not favored them it was time to take a detour and question the status quo.
The National Coordinator of the group, Comrade Jamilu Aliyu Charanchi, lamented that instead of addressing the challenges as they emerge, successive leaderships found it expedient to use them for either political gains, or to serve their selfish interest of polarizing the region along ethnoreligious, and socio-cultural divides.
