Chairman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Dr Paul Unongo steps down


Chairman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Dr Paul Unongo has stepped down. 

He resigned yesterday at an emergency meeting of the Forum in Abuja. It was gathered that Unongo who succeeded the late former Nigeria’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Maitama Sule, last year as Convener of the elite Northern group, convened the emergency meeting where he informed members of the Forum of his decision to step aside. 
A successor would be appointed in few days time “in line with the drive to move the Forum forward in its determination to support the task of building a strong and virile Nigeria”. 


Also speaking yesterday, Unongo said he stepped down on his own volition so as to give way for a new leader who will ensure dutiful implementation of the suggestions he has made as well as help move the forum forward.
