The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has denied the media report that suggested that the forum has approved the purported second term bid of President Muhammadu Buhari, according to a report by DailyTrust.

A statement issued yesterday in Abuja by the forum's director of logistic at its national secretariat, Captain Bashir Sodangi, said all the views expressed by the forum's convener, Paul Unongo represented his personal opinion and not that of NEF.

The forum's convener, Paul Unongo, was quoted in an interview saying that President Buhari had been adopted as the candidate of the north.

The statement pointed out that the forum which had not met since September 2017 had never discussed the politics of 2019 not to talk of adopting a candidate.

"It follows therefore that NEF has at no time recently met, discussed or adopted a common candidate for the 2019 presidency.
"If at any time the NEF should meet on 2019, our position supported by detailed reasons, shall be duly communicated through our official communication channel as usual," the statement read in part.

The NEF, while thanking Nigerians for their concern and cooperation, also urged them to be patient.
