-Says PMB should serve his mandatory four years and quit the stage.
The leadership of the Arewa Youth Forum, AYF, in a reaction to a purported endorsement by All Progressives Congress, APC, Lawmakers from the northwest in Kaduna, on Monday said President Muhammadu Buhari does not deserve any endorsement for the 2019 presidency.
Gambo Gujungu, AYF’s National President, said Buhari was not fit to return as president in 2019.
The AYF argued that with the killing spree all over the country, especially in the North, Buhari should serve his mandatory four years term and quit the stage for another Northerner.
Gujungu noted that one sour point about President Buhari’s 2019 ambition was his claim that the killings across the country were being carried out by “desperate politicians”, yet without arresting a single suspect.
The AYF president, therefore, said Nigerians should blame the President for the attacks on innocent citizens.
He said the President’s claim that the killings under whatever guise was caused by desperate politicians, “shows that the president knows the killers”.
His words, “Nigerians should hold the President Buhari responsible for the killings because he made it clear in one of his speeches that it was
‘desperate politicians’ that are responsible for the herdsmen killings.
“Being the Commander-in-Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces, the bulks stops on his table. It is important, therefore, for him to fish out the desperate politicians as a matter of urgency.
“Therefore, to allow the President to come in 2019 will spell doom, not only for the North but the entire country.
“This is not 2015 when we said North versus the South. This is not APC or PDP affairs.
“We have enough Presidential aspirants in the North that are capable and not Buhari again.
“Buhari should just honourably leave the stage in 2019 so that the North can regain its lost glory”.
Recall that last Sunday, lawmakers from Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Jigawa, Sokoto and Zamfara States at the inauguration of local coordinators for the ‘Northwest Young Parliamentarians in support of Buhari/Osinbajo 2019′, had said that the President had done so well in the areas of security, infrastructure development and deserved to return and complete the good job he started.
Serving lawmakers from the House of Representatives, of the norhwest geopolitical divide, Deputy Governor of Kaduna State, Barnabas Bala Yusuf, who stood in for his principal, Nadir El-Rufai, Mahmud Shinkafi, former Zamfara State governor and Dambazzau, Interior Minister, was represented by his son, Shamsudeen Bello, attended the event.
