The group in a statement made available to journalists by its President- General, Comrade Abiodun Bolarinwa said that what the ex-President said was a true reflection of what was going on in the country which Buhari must act upon without further delay.
Besides, thegroupsupbraided Presidency and the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) for attacking Obasanjo over his warning to Buhari, saying Garba Shehu and Audu Ogbe should shut up and give same respect they had for Buhari, Northern emirs and their leaders to Obasanjo.
