North ready for break-up: Keep your oil, we'll keep our land -Ango Abdullahi
<a href='' target='_blank'><img src='' border='0 alt=" /></a>
Professor Ango Abdullahi, scion of the northern intelligentsia, and frontline trooper of the oligarchy is the spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF. He shot into national consciousness in the maelstrom of the "Ango must go" crisis of 1986, when a violent uprising in the nation's ivory towers demanded his removal as the vice-chancellor of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, ABU.
He is a leader of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and by his own reckoning was one of the 10 people that drew up the constitution and "signed it into life".
Abdullahi leaves pristine oil politics to descend on former heads of state, accusing them of national assets stripping.

The Secretary-General of NEF, Professor Ango Abdullahi, said last week that the North had made its position on the 2015 presidency known to President Jonathan's emissaries that the zone would not support Jonathan's ambition.
Abdullahi further alleged that the Presidency's political tacticians have compiled a list of 151 key northern politicians and leaders with a view to wooing them to work for the President in 2015.
However, Alhaji Gusau said Abdullahi was on his own.

A national newspaper over the past weekend carried a bold headline: "North Vows To Stop Jonathan", with riders: "We will ensure PDP loses" - Ango Abdullahi; Arewa Chair Commassie: "We are keeping Plan B to our chest".
Professor Ango Abdullahi is the spokesman of the reactionary Northern Elders Forum, NEF, which is overpopulated with former holders of prominent offices at the federal level.
Ango Abdullahi and his cohorts were given free education and pampered like princes while at school because they were just a handful when compared with their teeming colleagues from the former Eastern and Western Regions.
The youth have now channelled their anger into Boko Haram insurgency to overthrow the ruling class of the North for which Ango Abdullahi is a noisy spokesman.
Where was equity when Ango Abdullahi and other Arewa freeloaders exclusively called the shots for 39 years, reducing the South to mere spectators? Is it now that a president from the South-South in the former Eastern Region is presiding over Nigeria and gradually restoring the broken institutions of state that Abdullahi attaches a sanctimonious meaning to "equity"?
The truth of the matter is that Ango Abdullahi and the NEF are in no position to carry out the threat they have issued.
Even at that, Arewa North does not dance to the political tune dictated by the faction that Ango speaks for. Ango Abdullahi, Lawal Kaita and Alhaji Ibrahim Coomassie, who boasted that the North would release "Plan B", are agents of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar's faction of the APC.
Ango Abdullahi is just letting off empty, hot air.
The Secretary of NEF, ..., 31 May 2013 [cached]
The Secretary of NEF, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, was recently reported in the media to have insisted that the north would no longer misuse its right to produce the presidency at the next elections in 2015.
The forum had in September last year inaugurated special committees on politics, security and human rights and the review of the country's constitution.
While explaining the position of the north on 2015 presidential election, Abdullahi said the region no longer subscribed to the idea of zoning, adding that the process should be made open to all who are interested to contest.
Abdullahi, who acted as the spokesman for the forum, said the north had also decided to take a serious look at the issue of the revenue allocation formula, derivation policy and the onshore-offshore dichotomy with a view to ensuring that the interest of the north is not undermined.
On the review of the constitution, Abdullahi said the process was an open-ended thing, which every part of the country was free to take a position.
He however said the committee set up by the forum would look at the constitution and see what changes are helpful to Nigerians and which ones are injurious to the people.
