The Chairman of the Middle Belt Forum (MBF), Bala Takaya, has promised that the people of North-central zone would not work with other parts of Northern Nigeria in the 2019 general elections.
Takaya stated this on Wednesday in Jos at a one-day summit tagged: “Political and Security Situation of Middle Belt: The need for roadmap.”
According to him, attack on one was an attack on all.
He added that this would ensure the zone was recognised as an important region in Nigeria.
He added that the recent handshake across the Niger by leaders of the South-south, South-east and South-west was a build-up to 2019 and reaction to insecurity in Nigeria, especially, in the North-central.
“The handshake across the Niger especially with South/South, South/East and South/West is to address salient issues affecting the zones. We are not standing aloof, we are working together in the struggle for equitable Nigeria through restructuring.
