Lalong said " The Arewa Consultative Forum as a Northern socio-cultural pressure group has played both intervention and reconciliatory roles in addressing many issues affecting the region and the Country by advancing solutions and advice to relevant authorities".
He charged the new leadership to work in synergy with the Northern Governors Forum in addressing critical issues confronting the region such as insecurity,  poverty, illiteracy and the Almajiri phenomenon.
Lalong also appealed to the ACF not to relent in deploying its influential members to assist in reconciling various communities in the North and the nation as a whole with a view to promoting peace, harmony and tolerance which is necessary for development.

He said the unity of the north is paramount and as such, all stakeholders must put the interests of the people above personal considerations.
