In a candid admission, the Northern Elders Forum recently revealed a sense of regret regarding their voting decision in the 2023 elections, particularly concerning President Bola Tinubu’s candidacy. This revelation comes amidst growing concerns over the nation’s security challenges, epitomized by the distressing abduction of school children in Kaduna.

Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, spokesperson for the forum, shed light on the forum’s evolving perspective. He emphasized the imperative of unity and consensus in the selection of future leaders, recognizing the pivotal role such qualities play in fostering national cohesion and addressing the diverse needs of all Nigerians.

The 2023 elections marked a significant milestone, with Tinubu clinching victory on the back of substantial support from various regions, including the North. However, recent events have prompted a sobering reflection on the criteria used to determine their voting choices.

Suleiman candidly acknowledged the forum’s newfound cautious approach to candidate selection, highlighting the importance of qualities such as inclusivity, absence of controversy, and alignment with national interests. Their experience with Tinubu’s presidency served as a poignant reminder of the paramount significance of unity and consensus in charting the nation’s trajectory.

Looking ahead, the Northern Elders Forum remains steadfast in their commitment to learning from past missteps. They are determined to ensure that future leaders embody the values of unity, inclusivity, and effective governance, thus steering Nigeria towards a brighter and more prosperous future.

This introspective journey serves as a poignant reminder to all Nigerians of the critical role they play in shaping the nation’s destiny. It underscores the importance of informed and discerning voting decisions, rooted in a shared vision of unity, progress, and prosperity for all. As the nation navigates its path forward, let us heed the lessons learned and strive to build a future that reflects the aspirations and values of every Nigerian.
