ABUJA – NATIONAL Coordinator of Arewa Forum for Peace and National Development, AFPND, Mr. Ishaq Mohammed El-Habib, has called on northern leaders to encourage their people to vote for President Goodluck Jonathan as a sacrifice for peace and unity.
Briefing newsmen yesterday in Abuja, Mohammed El-Habib urged Northerners to encourage President Jonathan stay in office for the next four years.
Those at the forum included Michael Lalong Pategi of Northern Youths for Good Governance and National Growth, NYGGND, Arewa Forum for Peoples Welfare, AFPW, and Northern Women for Peace and Security, NWPS, among others.
According to him, “Politics is give and take. There are times you insist to hold on to power and times you make sacrifice. For us, this is the time for our people in the North to show magnanimity and give peace a chance by voting for President Goodluck Jonathan.”
