ACF Asks Northern Govs To Probe Alleged Recruitment Bias

ACFThe Northern Governors Forum has been asked by the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) to investigate allegations of bias against northerners in recruitment and promotions exercise in some security agencies.

In a communiqué issued yesterday at the end of its National Working Committee (NWC) meeting and signed by its National Publicity Secretary Anthony N. Z. Sani, ACF said the allegation as it affects northerners must be viewed with serious sense of concern.

“It is against such back-drop that the forum called on northern governors to use their commissioners in the Federal Character Commission to investigate the allegations with a view to ensuring that the North is not short changed,” the group said.
