The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has backed the position of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) over the growing security challenges in northern Nigeria, saying President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to address his most primary responsibility of providing security.

The spokesman for the coalition, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, while reacting on Tuesday, said communities in northern Nigeria must mobilise to protect themselves.

The ACF had on Monday expressed the anger and frustration of northerners to President Buhari on the growing security challenges in the region.

The ACF National Publicity Secretary, Emmanuel Yawe, said northerners had expected much more from the present administration.

The presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, did not react to message sent to him by our correspondent.

Similarly, the Northern Elders Forum has said there is no doubt that the administration of President Buhari does not care about the people of the north, their economy and security.
