Northern Group Calls For Accountability… Condemns Threats In “Kyari Must Go Now” Protest
The Northern Defence Network has issued a strong call for the arrest of leaders associated with the ‘Kyari Must Go Now’ group, urging authorities to investigate their motives in light of recent threats to disrupt Nigeria’s economic activities.
This group had threatened to occupy strategic national assets and resort to indecent tactics if Group Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, Mr. Mele Kyari, is not removed from his position.
In a statement released by Abubakar Nuhu Sani, Chairman of the Northern Defence Network, the group expressed their commitment to patriotism and their love for the country.
They considered it their duty to respond to what they deemed a rude, incoherent, and indecent petition against Mr. Mele Kyari, the CEO of the NNPC.
The contentious petition, reportedly commissioned by opponents of the NNPC CEO, called for a forensic audit of the Fuel Subsidy regime spanning the last eight years.
Moreover, it attempted to involve political figures such as President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, claiming to be his key supporters, and threatened to mobilize a one-million-strong youth march to enforce their demands.
The Network highlighted the severity of these actions, characterizing them as not only felonious and detrimental to the nation’s progress but also a significant threat to national security.
The threats to disrupt vital national economic assets like major roadways and the NNPC Towers in Abuja were condemned as acts that could undermine economic progress, regional integration, and foreign investment, potentially leading to social unrest, fuel shortages, and violence.
Abubakar Nuhu Sani called for the arrest of the individuals behind the petition to ensure Nigeria’s economic stability and security. He emphasized the need for swift action to safeguard the nation’s economic activities, protect its progress, and ensure the well-being of its citizens.
In a disturbing twist, the authors of the petition threatened to resort to indecent tactics, involving the public exposure of nude women during protests.
The Network firmly stated that while public protests serve as an essential tool for expressing grievances and advocating for change, such immoral tactics should not be tolerated.
These actions were described as uncivilized, indecent, indecorous, primitive, immoral, and filthy, violating personal dignity, eroding public decency, degrading the message of the protest, and potentially exposing women to harm and exploitation.
In conclusion, the Northern Defence Network urged the authorities to take a resolute stance against these threats, calling for the immediate arrest and interrogation of the petition’s signatories.
They underscored the importance of preserving a civilized society that upholds the rights and dignity of all its members while advocating for constructive dialogue as the means to effect meaningful change.
