A group of northern elders, Kungiyar Dattawan Arewa Initiative (KDAI) has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of the February 16th election.

Members of KDAI include: Aliyu Wamakko, senator representing Sokoto north; Paul Tarfa, retired major-general; and Sani Daura, former minister of agriculture; Abdullahi Adamu, senator representing Nasarawa west; and Paulen Tallen, former deputy governor of Plateau state.
The convener of KDAI, Tarfa, speaking at a press conference on Saturday, said they decided to endorse Buhari after “a long and fruitful consultation with our members from all parts of the north.”
He said, “We have made this choice after a deep reflection in what President Buhari stands for in the history, politics, social and moral life of Nigeria at this time.
“In the last three and a half years since he took over as president of this country, President Buhari and his administration waged a relentless fight against corruption in all aspects of our national life.
“That is why Nigerians should accord him another four years in the office in order to push forward with the fight.
“A major achievement of the Buhari administration for which we in the north are justly proud of is in the agricultural sector, which is the mainstay of our economic life in northern Nigeria.
“The TraderMoni initiative and other Social Investment Programme of the administration have greatly helped small scale traders, artisans and the unemployed to improve their lots.
“We are happy and proud that President Muhammadu Buhari has been just and fair to all parts of the country and we are sure that he will continue to do so if he is given the mandate to continue in office.”
