A prominent northerner, Aminu Dantata has asked the Northern Elders Forum to team up with other Nigerians of like mind to bring an end to the disturbing multiple problems facing the country if truly elites are meant to live behind a prosperous nation for the youths.

Receiving the Northern Elders led by Professor Ango Abdullahi and others who were on a condolence visit to Kano over the death of Bashir Tofa, Dantata, said it was clear that the Presidential system of government had failed Nigeria.

He said, “you will agree with me that the Presidential system of government has failed the Nation. What we need now is a Parliamentary system, because the one we are operating is too cumbersome and financially disturbing”.

Aminu Dantata also called attention to the decadence in the family system, leading to lack of honesty, corruption and general insecurities.

“I think today’s values have gone down so low. People consider money more than our core values system and that is why many negative things are happening in the Country which requires the elders attention”.

Aminu Dantata expressed worry over the frequent drops in values of the Nigerian currency, explaining that today Naira has nearly become valueless in the global markets. “You can see that the rise in prices has everything to do with the devaluing of the Naira”.

“Nigeria needs desperate measures to tackle this ugly scenario, because poverty is slowly gaining ground amongst the poorest while those that are trying are getting frustrated by the day”.

Dantata also called on Nigerian politicians to do away with destructive criticism as has been obtained in the nation’s political cycle, “we are going nowhere with the kind of politics we are seen today, we must change the narrative if we are to salvage the nation polity”.
