Northern groups throw supports behind Pius Anyim


Civil society groups under Arewa Concerned Civil Society Organisations of Nigeria (ACCSON) in Kaduna believe that the next man to occupy the presidential seat after President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration’s expiration date in 2023 is someone from the South-eastern part of Nigeria.

The groups further insisted in Kaduna on Monday that the man was former Nigerian Senate President Anyim Pius Anyim. The groups made the comment while addressing the media at the popular Arewa House.

ACCSON spokesperson Abdulsalam Mohammed Kazeem said Mr Anyim had won a unanimous decision and support from the organisations under ACCSSON due to his willingness to open dialogues with various voices in the country.

“The Southeast is part and parcel of the Nigerian project from day one till now and they should be treated fairly just like other zones of the country,” said Mr Kazeem. ” The zone also deserves to get what other zones have gotten because they have paid their dues in terms of economy, political and social cohesion and consolidation of Nigeria.

“For instance; between 1999 to 2007, it was South-west and North-east, and between 2007 to 2015 it was between North-west, South-south and North-west while between 2015 till date it is between Northwest and South-west.”

The organisations that voiced support for Mr Anyim’s presidency include Arewa Youth Assembly for sustainable growth, Arewa Youth and Students Forum, Concerned Northern Forum, North East Peace Movement, Arewa Youth Council of Nigeria, Northern Youth Assembly for Tranquility, Northern Women Initiative Forum, and North East Development Council.
