Stop trying to rob us of the Presidency - Northern Youth Warns South-West Leaders

The National President of Arewa Youth Forum (AYF), Gambo Ibrahim Gujungu, has warned politicians in the Southwest to stop trying to rob the North of the slot of Presidency, in the interest of peace.

According to The Guardian, Gujungu said the north and especially the youth are aware of the plan of the southwest to push out Buhari “through a campaign of calumny, using his health as a yardstick.”

He also said that the leadership of the forum has visited Buhari in London, claiming that the President is recovering fast.
Speaking to journalists in Kaduna yesterday, Gambo said the Southwest was using the duo of Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Femi Fani Kayode to champion their cause, insisting that the north would resist any attempt to take over power from them now or in 2019.

Gujungu said, “These Southwest people think that we don’t understand the politics they are playing, we do but we will shock them when the time comes.
“They are using Fayose and Fani-Kayode to pitch the rest of the country against the north and Mr. President in particular, we understand the game but we are waiting and watching.
“You know, I am the National President of AYF, the umbrella body of all youth in the north and many of you are aware of our efforts to stabilise the country, mostly against this recent call by some of our brothers to expel people of the south east.

“But some people want to show us that they understand the game of politics more than us. But they are in for a surprise.
“Let me reveal to you guys that after our recent meeting in Kaduna here, a delegation was sent to London. I led that delegation because we wanted to know the truth of the situation.
“We met with the President and he told us some things. All I can say now is our President would soon be back and people would witness drastic changes in the country.
“Many people will be surprised when he comes I can tell you that.”

Gujungu added, “I am challenging Fayose to immediately release his 11 pictures or resign as the governor of his state for telling Nigerians lies unbecoming of a governor. This man has been peddling lies to gullible people thinking he is criticising the President.
“This is a challenge from me to him and I can tell you he would do nothing because all his claims are tissue of lies.”

He blamed the northern governors who are keeping quiet and even jostling for the Vice President slot for the predicament of the north, insisting that “it is time for the Northern Governors to stand up and defend the region and President Buhari, adding, “we are not happy with some of them; we want them to be seen protecting the interest of the north.”
