“Reinstate Pam As NCPC Boss”: Tinubu Gets Fresh Demand From Northern Elders

  • Mixed reactions have continued to trail the sudden sack of Yakubu Pam as the Nigeria Christian Pilgrimage Commission (NCPC)’s boss
  • The Northern Elders have called on the federal government led by President Tinubu to reinstate the NCPC boss to complete his tenure
  • The forum made the call in a statement by its spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman and also demanded a thorough investigation into the “unjustified” sacking of Rev. Pam

TheTalk.NG journalist Esther Odili has over two years of experience covering political parties and movements.

The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has expressed deep concern over the removal of the Rev Yakubu Pam from his position as the executive secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrimage Commission (NCPC).

As reported by Daily Trust on Sunday, April 7, NEF, in a statement by Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, its director of publicity, described the move as unjustified.

The NEF official said Pam’s removal has raised serious concerns within the northern Christian and Muslim communities.

The northern elders are particularly alarmed by the federal government’s lack of transparency and accountability in it’s decision.

The elders said Reverend Pam who has served in this role for the past three years, was removed from his position without following due process. They urged the federla government to alllow Pam be reinstated to complete his tenure, The Nigerian Tribune reported.

NEF, however, questioned the decision to appoint someone from Lagos to replace Reverend Pam, the only top position given to the Northern Christian community.

NEF stated thus:

“The manner in which Rev Pam was treated is troubling. Reports suggest that his belongings were callously thrown out of the office, causing him humiliation and disrespect. The NEF condemns this behaviour and demands that Pam be treated with the dignity and respect he deserves.”

Electricity tariff hike: Northern elders lambast Tinubu

In another development, TheTalk.NG earlier reported that the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) expressed disappointment with the recent decision by the Tinubu administration to increase the electricity tariff.

NEF described the hike as a complete disregard for the well-being of Nigerians.

The group said the breakdown of the new tariffs revealed an alarming burden that the average Nigerian will face in affording electricity daily.
