The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has come forward in support of Minister of State for Defence, Bello Mohammed Matawalle, amidst criticism over his recent statements regarding the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) and President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.

    Former senator Kabiru Marafa demanded an apology from Matawalle, alleging that his comments portrayed the NEF negatively. However, HURIWA’s National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, argued that Matawalle’s stance is justified and necessary for the continuity of developmental efforts.

    HURIWA highlighted President Tinubu’s deliberate appointment of Northerners into key positions as a commitment to addressing the region’s challenges. They urged all appointed officials, especially those from the North, to stand firm in their support for Tinubu’s government.
