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.

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.

A member of the NEF, Prof Ango Abdullahi, confirmed the position of the north in an exclusive interview with Vanguard but declined to say how such action would work against top politicians, who were not voted into office by the forum. The former ABU vice chancellor, said that although the NEF had no power to remove such politicians from office, they had the prerogative to expose them as saboteurs of the north.
Abdullahi said: "It is true that we are looking at those from the north, who are fraternising with Jonathan to stop us from getting the Presidency in 2015.
