Member of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) have declared their support for acting President Yemi Osinbajo.

The group also praised Buhari’s administration for restoring peace to the North-East, and its fight against corruption.

According to Daily Post, the NEF also called on Osinbajo to ignore mischief makers who are trying to bring confusion between him and the President.

The group said “The Forum expresses its full support and encouragement behind Acting President Osinbajo and urges him to exercise responsibility, as he did in the past, with commitment, sensitivity and respect for the Constitution.

“We urge him to ignore mischief which seeks to pitch him against the President or the Nigerian people whose mandates they both exercise.”

Adding that “Buhari has confronted the issue that has been disturbing us by tackling the insurgency which had caused a lot of havoc in the region especially the three states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa.

“We expect that the war against corruption will not suffer a setback, and current investigations and activities will not be stalled due to the absence of President Buhari.
