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

The NEF, in a statement by Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, its director of publicity and advocacy/spokesperson, described the removal as  unjustified, saying it has raised serious concerns within the northern Christian and Muslim communities.

The NEF is particularly alarmed by the lack of transparency and accountability in this decision as Pam was not allowed to complete his tenure.

“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.

“The NEF questions the decision to appoint someone from Lagos to replace Rev Pam, the only top position given to the northern Christian community. This raises concerns about the representation of northern Christians in key leadership positions within the government,” the statement noted.

The NEF further called for a review of the decision to remove Rev Pam, as well as his reinstatement.
