The Northern Youth Forum (NYF) has criticized the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) and the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) for their insistence that the region must produce the next president in 2015. A statement signed by the director media and publicity of the group in Kaduna said the recent press conference by the NEF and ACF led by Professor Ango Abdullahi, was designed to promote selfish interest at the expense of ordinary Nigerians. While the NYF condemns in strong terms the negative utterances of elders from the south south zone on the 2015 elections, they noted that the future of the region cannot be compromised to serve the interest of few individuals such as the northern elders and ACF. The statement further accused the northern elders, among them, former public office holders of being responsible for the under development and other challenges facing the region. It however advised the elders to champion issues that would bring about development and peace in the north and the country in general, rather than pursuing their selfish interest.
