The Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, has called on the Presidency and the National Assembly to stop what it termed the “unnecessary flexing of muscle.”
ACF said both the executive and the legislature should sheathe their sword in the interest of Nigerians.
In a communiqué signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Muhammad Ibrahim Biu, ACF said the crisis between both arms of government has not only affected governance, but also the polity and growth of democracy in Nigeria.
The communique reads, “Both the executive and the NASS members are in place in order to deliver on the promise of democracy and not to engage in unnecessary flexing of muscles that have nothing to do with real issues of real concern to real ordinary Nigerians.
“NEC, therefore, applauded the actions taken by the FG and urged the Federal Government to thoroughly investigate the immediate and remote causes of the NASS invasion by the DSS personnel in order to unveil the truth and to sanction all those found culpable, no matter their status both within and without the service.
“And because punitive measure was never taken against those involved in similar episodes in the past, it has encouraged the DSS to do what it recently did to the NASS.”
