10th NASS: We won’t accept intimidation of northern aspirants — CNG

Ahead of the inauguration of the 10th National Assembly, the Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG says it won’t accept intimidation of northerners vying for leadership positions in the 10th Assembly.

In a statement issued on Sunday, CNG’s Spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, alleged that Abdulaziz Yari and some of his strong support pillars have been targeted for arrest and to be intimidated out of the contest for insisting on due process.

The statement read: “We understand too that the sinister plot also extends to aspirants to positions in the House of Representatives who are targeted for undue harassment and intimidation.

This plot, as widely speculated, involves the introduction of a suspicious electronic voting system in the process meant to track the pattern of voting in the National Assembly.”

“This realization and other manifestations of evil being perpetrated by some unscrupulous political merchants, who pose as his friends, are the reasons why from the onset, CNG cautioned the President against the antics of desperate political dealers with very negative intentions by allowing the legislators to freely and fairly produce their leaders.

Suleiman called on President Bola Tinubu to stop the ploy to intimidate anyone exercising his or her right to vote and to be voted for.
